Caring for Kasey was wonderful.I started when she was 8wks old. Her mother made up this brilliant chart so I could write down our day..sleep,feedings,diaper changes.Then new foods,expressions,what she did,learned...colors,alphabet,numbers,animals,words.Then outings,parks,playgrounds,pools,feeding big coy fish!of course washing face&hands brushing teeth (and making up songs for it).Potty training, bath time,getting dressed.All the while working with Mom&Dad so we were all on the same page....time-outs...tantrums(all part of childcare).And I would hope that having a nanny around lessened the stress on her parents.My experience has been great.I still keep in touch with Kasey,she is 7 now.Where does the time go?
Mikayla,was also a joy.started caring for her when she was 2 and a half mos. She is 4 now. Both jobs ended when they started daycare. Kasey in second grade is reading at 5th grade level. Mikayla,knew all her letters, numbers,colors,vowels,and lots of songs she can sing on her own.could spell her own name and write it, before she went to the daycare at 3yrs old.
I had my first baby sitting job when I was 12,& baby sat all thru high school.after 2yr. College degree in art & interior design, I got married, had two children of my own. Had a career in sales/custom design furniture.
In 1999 was blessed with my first grandson, in 2005 a second grandson!
I enjoy infants and toddlers, so I decided to become a Nanny/Babysitter full time.
