I was very involved from age nine on with the care and rehabilitation of my brother who had Cerebral Palsy along with babysitting for family, friends and neighbors through the years. I have three wonderful grown children and three very smart and active grandsons under the age of eight who keep me laughing and young at heart. Most people think they are my kids because I look so young-bless their hearts! That brings me up to forty years(!) plus of experience with children of all ages and stages of development. I have great references from three+ families in the twin cities area from the near past.

I babysat three children for around three years until I moved. They were three boys at the ages of 6 months, 4 years old, and 8 years old. We walked to different parks, went on scooter rides, played outside in the yard, went on the trampoline, etc. Also, I babysat a 3-year-old boy and 7-year-old girl on different occasions. We played outside when it was nice, played dress up, played dolls/action figures, watched movies, etc. I also help my sister at times with watching her 6-month-old and 18-month-old daughters. I was either feeding the 6-month-old or playing outside or downstairs with the 18-month-old.
