Full-time hours

I started babysitting at twelve years old after taking classes in CPR. At first, I mainly babysat for families from my church. When I was about 14 I started babysitting many kids throughout the neighboorhood as well. In high school I was a nanny for twin boys during the summer, I babysat them from 6 mon. old to 7 yrs old. I have been helping my brother and sister-in-law with raising 3 children under the age of two! (they adopted two and just had a biological daughter) I have an easy going personality, but am very active and I am a go-getter. God gave me a heart for children and there is nothing in this world I adore more than to be able to teach and care for children. I have babysat a wide variety of ages and amount of kids. I also have experience working with children who have special needs.

Full-time hours

I babysat a newborn in high school about 25 hours a week up until she was about 2 years old when I left for college. While, I was away at college my father, who is widowed and works full-time needed help with my younger sisters who are now 12 and 14. Since coming home I have pretty much raised my sisters and taken care of the house. I make every meal, take them to after school activities, help them with homework, take care of them while they're ill, and create and maintain their weekly schedules. I maintain the household. Do laundry and dishes daily, clean up after the kids and animals. I make all the appointments for my family, and make sure they are kept. Though, I didn't choose to come home and fill a "stay at home mom" role, I feel I have excelled and I feel very passionately about being a good influence in the lives of children.
