I have been babysitting since I was about 13 years old. I have a younger brother that I have always watched over, & also a large family with many small children. I have many references of people I have babysat for. My first full time nanny position was for a family with 2 children. When I started, the girl was 3 months & the boy was 2.5 years. I stayed with them for 6 months until I left for personal reasons. I am still very close with this family. A year or so later they refered me to friends of theirs with a 4 year old boy & 6 year old girl. It was not a full time position, both children attended school. I was with them for 1 year and 4 months. I decided to move to California & had to leave them. My first family again refered me to a friend of theirs also moving to California. I have been with them for a year but am planning a move back home to Boston area. The family I am currently with also has 2 children. They were 1 year & 4 years when I started. I was full time for them up until recently because the little boy began school in the morning. I am also currently helping a friend of my current family in the morning with a newborn boy. I will be with this family up until my move.
