Energetically looking to fulfill my ‘empty nest’ position now that my kids are grown. I have a grown son, and the other who is off to Auburn in the fall. I have been a stay at home mom for 18 years and would love the opportunity to take care of your children. I don’t have ‘professional outside of the home’ experience but I do have real life mom experience of over 30 years. I am very energetic, fit, fun, organized, reliable, loving, safety minded, adventuresome and looking for something long term and permanent. I am looking to nanny for at least the next 13 years.
My background is Radiation Therapy (Cancer Treatment) and Personal Training. I hold a CPR and AED certification. I would be more than willing to take my AHA First Aid certification as well and whatever you feel is needed and appropriate. I enjoy taking the kids to the pool, museums, out for lunch, playgroups, walks, playground time, anything that they enjoy. I have a dog and I’m very comfortable with pets. I don’t like to encourage TV watching or video games, I would much rather take the kids to explore the world around us or to use their creativity in some other forms such as drawing, story telling, make believe, painting, puzzles etc.
I am well versed in picking up after children, cooking snacks and light meals, reading bedtime stories and everything else that comes along with childcare. I love to show my silly side with children and have fun. I don’t have professional references but by request I can supply you with personal references from moms whom I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with their children over the years. Sleepovers, daytrips, visits etc etc. Moms whose children have built lifelong friendships with my boys. As a mom I enjoyed having kids at my home, hosting sleepovers, hosting the ‘famous’ “Pepperoni Roll Thursdays” during school lunch breaks :) , I volunteered for the teachers during elementary years and loved playing and showing kids how to exercise.
