Au Pair Cíntia from Brazil lives in the Midwest with her host family, caring for triplet 1 year old boys! While this would be a big responsibility for any Infant Specialized au pair, Cíntia’s host mom describes why she's the perfect fit for their family.
Cíntia manages to care for our children. I don’t mean “watch” them, or babysit. I mean care in the truest sense.
"It’s hard to describe exactly what it’s like taking care of triplets… Busy. Amazing! Fun! Adorable! SCARY!! It can be overwhelming for even the most seasoned baby-wrangler. Enter Cíntia – to whom I frequently & quite publicly refer as '40 kinds of Awesome' – because she is. She walked into our lives and directly into our hearts forever from the first minute. Within moments of walking in the door, Cíntia gravitated to the babies, and the sweetest love story began. Cíntia manages to care for our children. I don’t mean “watch” them, or babysit. I mean care in the truest sense. She cares for them with the love and devotion of a family member; is gentle, kind, patient and sweet. She is creative and animated in play, resourceful in soothing, and as excited as we are by their every new sound, giggle, wiggle and roll-over. She sings, plays, reads, talks and visibly enjoys being with them – so much so that after a day off, the first thing she wants to do is visit with them. But perhaps more importantly, my babies love her. Their faces light up when she is with them, and they are calmed and happy in her presence. And more than that, we love her! We feel so lucky to have her in our lives, in our family."
