I have been babysitting since the age of 13, and have worked for different families throughout the years. The first family I was with had two kids, one was 3 and the other one was 6. I stayed with them for a few months until summer came around and they started going to camp. The second family I was only with for a short time due to the position being temporary. They were twin eight month old baby girls, and I absolutely adored them! The most recent family I have been with them for the past 6 months, it started off as a temporary position to help ease their move from a different state and during the summer, however I ended up staying. Here I take care of a five year old little boy that has special needs and his 13 year old sister that I help out with homework, do some light cleaning and cooking for the kids.

I’ve worked for a family for three years, from 2007-2011, in Rockville Center. As stated on my resume, when I started there were only two children, and when I left the family there were five. I was very close to all of the children as well as the parents. I am happy to say that I felt like I was a small part of their family and that I contributed to their children’s well-being and happiness. Since then, I have been doing a lot of babysitting for my friends’ grandchildren. Besides getting along great with the children of others, I have two adult daughters myself.
