Most recently I was a full-time nanny for a young boy and girl. I spent at least 40 hours a week at the families home. We spent time outdoors at the pool or pond, we went to the movies and the mall, or just hung out on the swing set in the back. I also drove them to their weekly church camp and track practice. In addition to holding a full-time nanny position I was also able to maintain a part-time position for two young girls. Most of my time was spent with the youngest 3 year old while the 12 year old spent time at her friends. Olivia loved playing barbies and baseball. In high school I maintained a variety of regular babysitting jobs. I babysat for my English teacher's newborn infant. Two years later another child was born and I was able to babysit both an infant as well as a young toddler. I also spent the night babysitting a family of 6. There were twin infants and then four other children with ages ranging up to 12. I have had several other experiences that I would love to share if interested! I have enjoyed several years of experience with a variety of unique families and I'm very excited to continue.

I've been babysitting since I was 14. the first family I worked for was a family friend. I began babysitting her daughter when she was 2 years old, then her son when he was basically a newborn. I worked for her for about 4 years. Then unfortunately they moved away and so I began working at a warehouse for about 7 months. During that time, I was also babysitting a friend's baby boy. He was 4 months at the time and I cared for him until he was 1. I also have been caring for another friend's children. She had three kids, two girls (6 and 8 months) and a son (4 years old). I still see them now although I do not work for her anymore. My last two jobs i cared for 2 boys (2 and 4) and then 2 girls (1 and 4).
