What makes Luiza the Ultimate?
U= Understanding. Luiza has the patience of a saint with our three children. We thank God for bringing her into our lives everyday.
L= Loving. Luiza gives the best hugs and shows loving affection to al of us. She has become a part of our family. We want to keep her.
T=Thankful. Luiza is always appreciative. She is a great role model for our children.
I=Imaginative. Luiza is constantly coming up with great projects to do with the kids. My favorite so far is a Popsicle stick haunted house for Halloween.
M=Merry. Luiza always has a smile on her face. She is full of life and joy. Whether we go downtown for Zoo Lights or simply have a quiet dinner at home together, Luiza is happy just to be with us.
A=Adventurous. Luiza is ready to explore and try new things. She also shares her culture with us. We've enjoyed several dishes from Brazil including one of our favorites, panqueca.
T=Truthful. Luiza is honest. This is the foundation for a positive relationship. We trust her to take care of our most precious gifts.
E=Energetic. Luiza has endless energy to constantly play with our children. She plays anything and everything, from LEGOs to dress up to barbies or cars to spies. She also teaches my kids Brazilian games and songs. All three of my children can count to 10 in Portuguese and sing Ariel in Portuguese, as well as other songs.
So...YES! Luiza is the ultimate Au pair. We are so grateful to have her in our lives and in our children's lives. My 7 year old said the other day, "Luiza, when I grow up I want to be just like you." We can only hope our kiddos grow up to be as kind and loving as Luiza. She is our ultimate, but more than an Au pair, she is part of our family. We love her.
