I have 8 years of experience babysitting for children ages 5+. I nannied 1 year for a family that had a 2 year old and a 5 year old with a baby on the way. When I nannied, the hours were not set, it was a very flexible schedule. I worked based on the time the expecting mother needed help (approx 20-25 hours per week). As a nanny for a 2 and 4-year-old, I had to manage my time well with lots of activities to keep both children entertained. At the parents request, I allowed no more than 30 minutes of TV per day. I had the kids do crafts, we went for neighborhood walks, had playtime at the neighborhood playground, read books, and we also did learning activities. It has been several years since I have babysat or been a nanny. I am not a mother to a 1-yr-old, which had been my full-time job until now.

I was a stay at home mom for about 29 years. I have four children, three boys 20, 21, and 33, and one girl 25yr. The house is very quiet and I miss having little ones around. I was a Sunday school teacher to 2nd and 3rd graders in OKC. I have been a substitute teacher at the school level. What a challenge, but very rewarding... I was told by a student "we need to have more teachers like you!". I have 6 grandchildren,4yrs.and under, 3 boys and 3 girls. I believe I have a gift to give to any age, old or young.

By the age of thirteen I was highly recommended in my neighborhood and have continued to be the care giver of children in my neighborhood since. I have also been a guardian to children from a previous relationship for a period of about four years.
