Growing up, I was the oldest of three children. I have a younger sister and brother. Growing up our parents worked a lot which made me in charge most of the time. But I never really minded because I enjoyed watching my sister and brother grow up every day and learn new things. I enjoyed cooking for them every night, checking their homework, or making sure my brother washed his hair in the shower. My mother realized that I loved it so much that she put me into a babysitting course which provided CPR, ways to get ready for babysitting (for example knowing emergency contacts, where thermometers were located, ect.), and what to do if there was any type of emergency. I started babysitting on school nights and weekends for my mom’s work friends at about 12 years old. For the past year I have been working in a Daycare and I could never express in words how much I love it. I have been working there for almost a year and seeing how much my Daycare children have grown in that year is truly amazing. For instances, one of my regular children could barely even walk when I had first started working. She wasn’t talking yet but she made these facial expressions that told you what she wanted. Eventually she started walking better and then running and before I knew it she was saying words. Now she completely understands every word I’m saying and her vocabulary is absolutely amazing for just turning two. I love kids especially the early stage where they are just figuring out how to function in life.
