I took care of a 6 months old girl on Rockville pike In 94. And she was so close to me. She cry for me every time I walk In the door. The family want back out of states. I also took care of another 6 months old boy in South West DC. He was the same too close to me .He always jump out of his mother's hands just to come to me. His Mother some time ask her friend who was there. Saying, What so special about marilyn for which he is jumping out of my hands just to go to her? What she did not know was, I play hid and see with him. And When he cry, I put him on my back to go do laundry, wash dishes, and do house cleaning around the House till he f Fall asleep. And I put him to bed. I took care of a 2 months old boy when I was still In my country Liberia, until he was 3 years old. My husband move away for a new job and sent for me to join him out of town. So I put in a request to leave the job. When I left the job, the family could't find any body to replace me . Because the child didn't want another babysitter. It lhappens that the family went to west Ganmeny And sent for me to join them there, the lady was carrying another child and wanted me to be the care taker. So I join them In west Ganmeny.The boy Was in school now. So I did all general housekeeping. While the14 years old girl took care of him and took him to school. Thanks.

I have been babysitting since I was 14 years old for a number of different families, some of them for many years. I've cared for month old infants all the way up to pre-teens, families of one child to families of four children. I've also worked in daycare, Sunday School/church nursery, nannied, tutored, and now I work full time as a middle school teacher (I have experience in grades PK, K, 4, 5, and some high school as well). Bottom line, I have always loved children and I enjoy working with them in all capacities.
