I have been babysitting since I was about 12 years old. Even when I was not old enough to go to other homes and babysit for other families children I always cared for my own little sister who is three years younger than me and loved helping my mom out. I have babysat for numerous families anywhere from my own family members (i.e cousins), my mothers work friends families, and even my bus drivers children. I nannied for a family over the summer of 2007, and fell in love with the job. I continued my nannying career at the end of the summer of 2009 after a long search for the perfect family and job.
