Full-time hours

I have had many years of child experience beginning with the birth of my younger twin sisters when I was three. Immediately, I became a mini mom to them and wanted to take care of them like they were my own. Ever since I have always loved kids. I began babysitting my sisters on my own when I was ten years old and it wasn't long after that that I began babysitting other families' children. I started sitting regularly for a family shortly after I graduated from college. Four years ago, I came a crossed a family nearby me that was in need of a daily part-time caretaker of their then two children. Three years ago they had a third child and I have been fulltime ever since.
