I have been babysitting since the age of 13. The largest amount of kids I have babysat in one sitting has been a family of five. There is never a dull moment. My older sister has always been a babysitter and was even a nanny for two years. I understand the responsibilities of a nanny by watching my older sister and implementing them into my own experience. I am currently a nanny to now a two-year old girl. She has grown in her speech and has become well behaved since I've been with her. I'm quite impressed with her results as it has taken a lot of time, patience, and love I gave. I was only six years old when my little sister with down syndrome was born, so my mother would need a babysitter for the both of us, but not one person could take care of my sister or myself with that loving care the we needed. The majority of babysitter's watch t.v. with the child, not interacting at all. Sometimes, I would experience a babysitter falling asleep while watching t.v.. What then happens to the unattended child? I know the important role of what being a nanny entails and I hope I may be your perfect candidate!

I have been a full time for four years to two separate families! One of them has a child who is now 2 years old that I have been with since birth, the other family has two girls ages 3 and 5 who I have been with for a year. I am relocating from Vancouver WA to Palm Springs so I am on the hunt for a new nanny job! I work 60 hours a week and am there from when the children wake up to when I read them bedtime stories at night.
