Just like most young girls around the age of 12, I wanted to make some money and wasn't old enough for a job, so I babysat! Since I was 12 I would babysit just a couple hours for families, while the parents were at dinner. This past year however, I babysat overnight for a family while the mother and father worked. I had 3 kids to look after. two girls (ages 2 and 10) and one boy (8 years old). I would cook dinner for the kids, get them showered and cleaned up, and then off to bed! Also in the mornings I would get them ready for school, make sure they ate breakfast, and then send them to school! This was the first time I actually babysat for a long period of time everyday, and I loved it!
