Hi,
I'm Elizabeth. I worked for a family in Hartford from June 2017 to October 2017. The children were 3-months-old, 2-years-old, and 3-years-old. I was responsbile for bathing them, potty training, cooking them meals, doing housework, taking them to the park...a little bit of everything

A few months before that job, I cared for a 14-month-old baby 5 days a week. The family ended up moving out of state shortly after hiring me, so that job didn't last very long. Although the mother liked me enough to consider inviting me on a family vacation.
