Michele T. - Seeking Work in Long Valley

Full-time hours

I have been a loving mother of three children ages 16, 18 and 19'yrs old. I love children and I would like to create for a family the kind of fun loving atmosphere that my kids are growing up in. I have three children who continue to learn and grow and are becoming independent, fun loving,secure and confident individuals . I am very hands on and am always doing things with the kids and for the kids. I enjoy a scheduale with the kids but am flexible depending on the days events. I was always on the go with the kids even from the time they were infants. There was always plenty of stimulation verbally , visually and through play. My strongesst points were always predicting their needs so it was rare that they would get real cranky for any length of time. None of my kids ever through temper tantrums because the limitations were clearly set and communicated properly. If I were to sum up my mothering or nanny style it would be that I am so involved with the kids that all else can wait because dinner and laundry and whatever else always got done by the end of the day anyway. I haven't worked and have only been home with my children from the time they were born. I would like a family who is flexible because I have alot to offer but their are still some things I would have to work out between the families.
