I have been nannying/babysitting since around 11 years old; I am now 20. I love kids :) I have nannied/babysat many different ages, from less than 5 months to teenagers. Some experience I have had is nannying twins for over a year about 2-3 times a week (about 8 hour days). I also watched them for two different weekends while their parents were out of town. I started nannying them when they were about 7 months old. They are now 26 months. I also periodically watched a 3 year old. Currently I am caring for two families; a family with 7 and 11 year old girls, and a family with a 6 month old girl and a 3 year old boy.

I have been a nanny for two family's now with school and a job intermixed at times. The first family was watching 3 children. I would get them out of bed, drive them to school, and pick them up from school. We would enjoy snack and play time for a couple of hourse until one of the partents could return home. I was a full time nanny for a beautiful family in Edwards Colorado. One boy whom I started watching when he was 2 until he was 4, old enough to go to school. I was a live-in and it was by far one of the best experiences I have had. I am still very close with the family and the boy, getting together as often as we can.
