I have a younger sister, 5 years younger than I. I have watched and cared for her for a majority of my life since she was 5 years old and I was 10; I have prepared meals for her and taken her to her scheduled events whenever she needed. Aside from her, I have taken care of my 3 baby cousins from their ages of 4 to now, which the oldest is 11 and the youngest is 4. I interact with them all day to ensure they are growing and learning, we complete homework first thing and play games outside if weather permits. I allow limited TV time just because I want them to be the best they can be and get the most out of their day!
