My first experience began in the year 2010 as an Au Pair. I simply loved my kids, they were an absolute delight. I first began taking care of Noah(6yr) and Avery(3yr) at the time and later on the year we had a little bundle of joy- Wyatt. There was never a dull moment as we laughed, played and danced and we still do to this very day. However, due to school hours and kids growing, I needed to work more hours and found my second job with 3yr old John. We accomplished the potty within 2weeks and had shared many fun memories. Other experience include occasional babysitting for numerous families- what can I say, I am lovable!
