I nannied for twin 2 year old boys while attending college. I was responsible for arriving at 6:30 am to start their day with making their beds, feeding them breakfast, and taking them to a park or museum. Although we followed a strict routine, everyday we learned and did something new. We returned from the museum for lunch, story time than nap time. I nannied for the family for 3 years. we eventually adjusted schedules for school but I always kept busy either with the boys or house work. I was fun and active with the boys while teaching them their numbers and abcs, shapes and how to tie their shoes. It was a team effort between me and their parents. I than had two boys of my own. I have a 3 year old and 1 year old. I learned everything I could from being a nanny but there are things you cannot learn until you are a mother and now I know the best of both worlds. I know exactly what a parent is looking for because I am a parent.
