I thoroughly enjoy being with children and taking care of them. I totally understand the stress of finding the right person to take care of you child, so it is very nice to hear from the parents of the children I take care of that they are so relaxed and comfortable when I take care of there children. I am glad I am able to do that for parents, as I am a parent and know the stress when you leave your child with a sitter. The little girl I took care of since she was 9 months old told her mom she wanted me to come with her to Disney, that just warmed my heart. "Of course I am not going - lol" .
A little about myself, I am married and a mother of a 22 year old who is studying to be a special education teacher. I have been living in Hawthorn for the past 29 years.
