I have 3 sons all are adults, Brandon (19) College, Nikko(22) USMC Veteran/ Graduate of LeCordon Bleu Chicago and Andrew (29) Electrical Engineering . I was always a stay at home mom except for working a couple hours that did not interfere with my sons activities. We have amazing sons that have goals and ambitions for this reason. I’m the type of mother that taught the child. Kids need that hands-on experience. They need that one on one. Reading, playing games or just playing outside. I volunteered in the school, church and in the community. I like a clean and orderly home and feel everything has its place. I have vast cooking experience and feel kids need a healthy meal at home with someone sitting and chatting with them. I’ve babysat throughout the years for various friends and church events. While I have never been an actual nanny. My sons, friends and family would say. I’m a great mom that always puts her family first. I look forward to being a part of your family and assisting with your children.
