Full-time hours

*I have babysat for many many children over the years since I was 12. I have quite a large clientele built up, and I will help them out by being an emergency back up babysitter, a date night sitter, or other as-needed jobs. *My first full time child care job was for one little girl. She was 11 weeks old when I started and 11 months old when they moved to a different town. (December 2008 to July 2009) *In October 2009 I got a job as a nanny for, then, 16 month old triplets. I was there for 2 and a half years, and they were nearly 4 when I left in April of 2012. *At the end of April I accepted a live-in nanny job in Virginia. It was a great experience. I was there for 8 weeks, but unfortunately due to some job duty confusion and personality conflicts, it didn't work out between us. I have no hard feelings though, and I feel even though it was a very short time frame, I was able to grow and I learned a lot. I am anxious to try another live-in position again.
