Hi my name is Jennifer Hernandez, the experience I have in being a nanny is taking care of kids, feeding them treating them like they where my own. I like to take care of kids boys or girls I like when I make them laugh and run, also when I have to feed them I put them music to dance around before they eat, after when they are tired I put them on a bed a put a movie, cartoons, or relaxing music so they Will take a nap. I can say I love taking care of kids because I don’t have any of my own.
