Growing up in a large family, I have gained plenty of experience watching my numerous family members. As I grew older, I came to discover the absolute passion I have for children and have been expanding it ever since. I now have a daughter of my own who is 18 months. Over the past 9 months I have been caring for two toddler boys, plus my own daughter, in my home. Before that I was a nanny to two beautiful girls, 8 and 10. As they grew older I was no longer needed. I was also a nanny for a family with two little ones, 4 months and 2. I was with this family until the youngest was two and I decided to go to school for cosmetology. I have also watched multiples. One family I would sit for on occasion had five kids, with two sets of twins! Our family is now relocating to the Charlotte area as my boyfriend has receive a job with an airline there. We are looking at residents in Rock Hill, SC but I'm willing to travel to the Charlotte area. I am now searching for a new family to create new bonds, memories, and adventures with. I am very experienced with all age groups and am more than capable of being responsible for multiple children at once. I absolutely adore arts and crafts, physical activities, and pets! My duties have included meal preparation, pick up/drop off to school/activities, homework help, light housework, laundry, etc.. The children I watch now are learning ABCs, numbers, shapes, colors, etc.. We are also learning sign language and are potty training. We do arts and crafts, sensory play, group story time, and work on our motor skills. I feel that I am capable of giving the correct amount of compassion, love, sternness, and fun which are essential to all children. I have grown to learn that the purest most honest connections are formed with children. This is the force that pushes me to give my all. I have a clean background, driving record and my own safe and reliable car. I also do not smoke nor do drugs. I have references available upon request. Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.

I have babysat for friends and family since I was 14 years old. I have also worked for a home health care company where I worked with a mentally handicapped young man who was confined to a wheel chair. I am able to change diapers, give baths, make meals, assist with homework, maintain the home, pet care, run errands and any other duties/responsibilities that would be assigned. I have never been arrested, I do not do drugs or smoke cigarettes. I keep a very tidy home myself as that is very important to me. I enjoy being outside even when it is cold my son and I will go outside for a bit. Unless it is too cold and then we do exercises in the house. Education and learning is also important to me as I loved school and will go back to school to get my bachelors or a second associates degree when the time is right but at this moment in my life I put all my time and energy into being a stay at home mother and homemaker.
