Dear moms and dads,

As we are moving back to France, our wonderful nanny, Lina, will be available from mid-July. Ideally, she seeks a full-time, live-out nanny position (light housekeeping is fine as well) in Brooklyn or Manhattan.

Lina has been a caregiver for 10 years and is currently 33 years old. She worked for our family for one full year until now in Brooklyn and her experience shows. It will be a heartbreaking separation as my sons, 6 years and 20 months old, love Lina so much. She truly became part of our family. We will surely remain close friends.

Lina is from Senegal, speaks perfect French and has been taking intensive English classes for one year. She is very energetic, hardworking and also gentle and caring. She has such a positive, attentive and cheerful attitude that she created a genuine ease across our lives and gracefully brought calmness to our household.

Lina works hard to meet my sons' needs: having fun outside of course with a close watch for safety, taking them to various activities, preparing healthy snacks and meals, playing lots of funny games at home, singing beautiful songs and still managing to keep our apartment neat and tidy, even after play dates! She is truly "merveilleuse".

Please feel free to pass this post along to your friends who may be currently looking for a nanny, or will be looking for a nanny soon. You can contact Lina directly on her cell (347 806 1290) and I too would be more than happy to provide a longer, more detailed reference.
