Throughout my teenage years until now I have babysat and been a nanny on and off for different families all over. The most recent family, that I still am currently working for is a family of two boys who are now 3 and 5. I am very sad to be leaving them because they have become my family in the past two years. I love the boys so much and would do anything for them. I took them to school, the park, museums, doctors appointments, train town, the jelly belly factory and basically anywhere else a young toddler would want to go. The thing that worked best with that family is that we were all very comfortable around each other and we communicated on a regular basis. They made me part of their family and I made them part of mine. Please ask me for a reference if your interested I will gladly provide you with a phone number or email of my last employers.
