I have 6 younger siblings and I have lots of experience caring for them on a daily basis. My parents home schooled all of us and raised us in a Christian home. I was a nanny 2 years ago for a precious family with two kids ages 5 and 23 months. I adore them! Unfortunately their mom decided to quit her job and stay home with them while her husband was deployed over seas. I am now having a similar situation with the family I am with now. When they hired me to nanny their newborn twin boys last May they asked me to commit to 4 years which was perfect for me! Due to a job change they are now in a position where the mom can stay home with the kids. They just told me this week that her last day of work will be June 30th. I am heartbroken because I love the babies but I am excited to see what the future holds!
