I grew up with a younger brother who I naturally always looked out for. When I got a little bit older, more and more families in the neighborhood wanted me to babysit. When family friends jobs kept them working late, they would always call me to see if I was available to to pick the kids up from school, get them a snack, help them with their homework, clean the house a little, get them ready for their various after school activities, drive/ pick-up from the activities, and then get them ready for bed. When the kids got settled, i would make their lunches for the next day, and leave when the parent returned home. I am childcare teacher currently, so I am used to hectic environment and many different personslities. Each child is unique and I love to cultivate and nourish that individuality.
