I have been babysitting since i was 13 years old. I started off babysitting for my two neighbors, a girl age 7 and a boy age 7. I continued to baby sit them both, two different families, for several years. Then i started helping out my best friends mother with her foster children, a variety of ages from new-borns to older children. Later on i started babysitting for a 12 year old boy after school for a couple hours. His mother then recently had a baby boy who i have babysat for occasionally since. The most recent childcare is nannying for a 7 year old girl from september 2011 to the present. I have done everything from bottle feeding and changing diapers to playing board games and playing outside with older children. I love to cook and have made meals for many of the families i've been with. I can also do any household chores that you may need.
