Most recently I was a nanny with a great military family whose father deployed to Afghanistan from Nov-August. I gave the family priority commitment & they were very kind to me in return. They had the sweetest little girl (turned 1) named Leah who I helped to potty train, dance/sing/color/read/walk/play/learn for hours each day. The mom worked in a nearby hospital so her hours could be funky, and they always had my full priority.
I became a special needs attendant through Public Partnerships to take care of a 4 year old boy with autism and his two year old sister. Each morning I would arrive to wake the children up, make breakfast, prepare lunch, get everyone dressed, and drive the boy to his school about an hour away. We had our daily routine that may have included play time outside, learning our letters and manners, sing a long's, dress up, and art time (for their dad who was on deployment) group play time, zoo visits on weekends, and family gatherings when the grandparents came to town.
I also was a nanny for a set of realtors, where the parents worked from home, and had two children (10 month old girl & 3 year old boy) that required making meals, dressing, naps, outside play time, going to the YMCA pool, dancing and song time, dress-up, birthday preparations, and having children over from the neighborhood to play outside. I also became a personal assistant for these parents, and ran errands to include helping set up our Nemo fish tank, grocery shopping, car repair visits, and helping out with their real estate business through computer publishing/advertising/ photographing their properties.
