The experience that had the most impact on me as a nanny, and a person, was when I worked with a family of 4: twin newborn babies, and an 8yr old and a 10 yr old. I moved in with the family to do overnight and daytime duty, starting the first night the babies came home. I continued to work with the family full time until the babies were 16mo old, when the family moved out of state. A year later I moved down to Raleigh, NC and continued to work with this same family for another year and a half. I have now moved back to Massachusetts, but I keep in touch with them, and just returned from a working vacation on Martha's Vineyard with the family. The twins, who I've know since they were infants, are now 5, and I consider myself priveleged to have watched them grow up and still have a close relationship with the whole family. I have also worked full time with a family of 3 children in Sun Valley Idaho, a family of 2 children in Raleigh, NC, and a family of 3 children in South Hadley, MA. I have worked with 4 other families while attending college, and have worked with infants all the way up to age 12.
