Thank you to Mella who did an amazing job from the moment she arrived. We were three single mums with a 14 year old, 8 year old, 5 year old & 2 year old.
Our two year old had tonsillitis and was miserable, and our 5 & 7 year old boys both have trouble with self regulation in regards to managing their anger and emotions. Our five year old was very homesick too.
In spite of this, Mella was able to distract, engage, play & swim with the boys, and find ways to comfort the baby. She was great at the restaurants and beach clubs, keeping the kids entertained so we could eat & relax in peace. She was also able to recommend the best days and places to go to for kids & family activities. She also made an effort to get to know my 14 year old and include him, when he bothered emerging from his room.
Mella was patient, helpful and flexible, and we missed her during our second week when we moved on to Lembongan and couldn’t take her with us. She fit straight in with all of us and our competing needs.
We will definitely request Mella next time we come to Bali and I can’t recommend the communication and professionalism of Bali’s Best Baby Sitting more highly.
