Hi, my husband and I have been married for almost 35 years and I stayed at home with our three children. Our oldest is 28 and the youngest is almost 23. I raised my children and now they are all either married, expecting a child or involved with someone. I've been a nanny for 4 families. I'm presently with a family who moved to Ohio for a job. Their little boy is now 15 months old and I've been with him since 3 months. I've worked for a family with twin girls from 6 weeks to 3 1/2 before going into daycare. I was able to be at home with our children and if you're not able to be at home, I would love to help you if I can. I enjoy doing arts and crafts, baking as well as reading, going to parks, going on walks or just watching them learn and advance at every stage of life. We were looking at moving to Delaware in 2020 but because of my current family dilemma that I'm working for, our timeline has been moved up. I would love to talk with you and see if I'm a good fit. Lisa
