I started out as a Mommy's Helper during weekdays helping a mother with her two infants. I began babysitting for another family and their 3 year old and helped out with their new baby. I helped a family out on weekends and after school with their three children, ages 11 to 16. I brought them to and from school, to practices and to games.

When I was in 5th grade I wanted to be a babysitter because I used to watch The Babysitter's Club on the Disney Channel. I found a bunch of friends who felt the same way and we started our own club. Unfortunately, I was too young to be a babysitter so my mom came up with the idea of a "Mommy's Helper." We would basically play with the children and keep them occupied while the moms were home and they would have a chance to do some things around the house. I stayed with 2 families for a few years that after awhile they started to trust me more and more. They eventually started running to the dry cleaner's or going to the supermarket or going out on a date with their husband. When I got to be of older age I started babysitting more. I love babysitting so much and have done a lot. I've taken kids to the doctors, the movies, out to eat, to lessons, to school, I've picked them up from school...etc. I've even babysat for a girl with autism and another girl with a speech impediment and twins with autistm. I took a babysitter's course when I was younger and I'm certified in CPR. I love what I do and I have so much fun!

I have been babysitting or caring for children since I was 13 years old. I have babysat for several families throughout my high school and college career. In college I babysat for a 5 year old boy and a two year old girl. I picked them up from school and daycare, prepared dinner for them and put them to bed, and performed light housekeeping. My brother has two year old triplets which I have helped care for since their birth. Having dealt with various conditions with childcare caring for triplets was by far the most challenging experience but the most educational and skill-building one I have had. After them, I can do anything!
