I have been around children of all ages for all of my life. My extended family is very close and I have babysat for cousins and family friends frequently. More recently, my mother has a daycare that is ran out of her home and I was very involved in the childcare with her. I watched the children in the event that she could not be there. Times such as when she has an appointment or emergency. She is licenced for 6 children right now and I have at times had all 6 on my own. The children are great and entertaining and having the opportunity to be with them was a joy.
