As a teenager, I began babysitting at age 12 for infants on up to 10 year olds. I then began going to school for early childhood education but had to leave school early to go to work full time. Since then I've had three girls of my own and have been a stay at home mom for almost 7 years. I would love to be able to help another family by caring for their child(ren) as if they were my own.
