Jackie B. - Seeking Work in Santa Fe

The last family I too care of was a single Mom who needed me to pick up her children from school and stay with them until she got back home. I also have done some overnight care for her when she would be 'on call'. But due to my college schedule, I had to leave. But the family gave me the experience on what it is like to be a true babysitter/nanny. I had done done prep-work on cooking for her, and also a few errands like shopping and internet searching.

I am a partially retired designer who has raised 3 children. I have much practice being present with children, taking the time to really be with them, give them attention and love. My grandson is a freshman in college, my last two children aren’t married & have not started their families.

I would love to have a young child to care for & share time with. I feel like I would offer a grandmotherly style of care... reading, doing fun play with your child or children.
