Full-time hours

I started babysitting for my neighbors when I was about 13 years old, and it honestly came second nature to me. As I got older, I started babysitting for my cousins as my Aunts and Uncles began to grow their families. Now, I not only take care of children in my hometown, but I now help out my cousins who have begun to have children of their own. My whole life I have been considered extremely organized and responsible, and I take pride in that.
