Beginning since the age of fifteen, I was instantly excited to begin caring for children. I started at a daycare center caring for preschoolers. My day consist of playing, reading, singing, cleaning up and supervising them during snack time. After a year of experience, I then started my very first babysitting/nanny job. I was introduced to a lovely family. I cared for a one year old little girl, and it was the beginning of an unexpectable bond between her and I. We pretend played, we did lots of arts and crafts, many walks to the park and lots of summer days on the driveway drawing & playing in the sprinkler. After making dinner, we were ready for baths & story time. Five years later her brother was born and I had a newborn to care for as well for the first time. It was an amazing opportunity to be able to watch these two grow. Lots of hands on with the both of them. Many memories together. The kids have both gone on to Highschool and College. Today I now have an amazing four year old little boy that keeps me going.
