Lots! I am a mother with a 30 and a 26 year old, and a beautiful grandson! I have taken care of plenty of their friends throughout the years as well. Sleepovers, parties, homework, after school activities, meals, sickness. You name it. I have experience in the classroom from preschool to middle school. In college I studied child development and elementary education. For 7 years I taught children ages 3 to 18 about making healthy lifestyle choices. I am extremely health-minded and believe in the "whole" picture of living life. We are spiritual, intellectual, physical and emotional beings. We need the balance!

I am the mother of 3 adult children, 21, 25 and 27. I stayed home with them all until they went to school.

In high school I worked every summer as a counselor at a sports camp in the NC mountains. I am very active. I think TV and computer time should be limited.

Growing up, there were 8 kids in my family, 4 of which I helped to raise! I have babysat for as long as I can remember and because of my experience with kids, parents are very comfortable asking me to keep their children!
