Full-time hours

While living in California I was a nanny for a family with three young girls. The two oldest girls had just turned 3 and 5 and the baby was born shortly after. I worked full time Monday through Friday and some occasional over nights. My duties included housekeeping, dog walking, laundry, preparing meals, running errands but most of all having FUN! I love children and enjoy getting down on their level and being fully involved in their play. I occasionally drove the older girls to school and picked them up. Basically anything asked of me, I've always been willing to do. Once all three girls were in school I left to find more work due to lack of hours. I truly loved their family and was treated as if I were a part of it.

I worked with them for two years and they became like my family while my husband was deployed to Iraq. Me and my husband have since moved back to Arkansas.
