In the past, I have sat for kids ranging from 6 months to 13 years old. Some of the tasks I have preformed include attending mommy and me music class, staying overnight with the children, running errands, driving the children to their afterschool activites, cooking meals, potty training, changing diapers, putting the children to bed, caring when they are sick, etc. Basically I have experienced it all! I love how each child is unique with their own perspnality and interests. I enjoy playing any type of games/toys with children- all that matters is that they are safely enjoying themselves while following any family rules!
