Full-time hours

I have been nannying since I was 13 years old. I am certified in CPR but luckily have never had to use it on children :0) I have been nanny to a family with three sets of twins all of which I have watched grown up throughout the years of nannying for them as well as being their neighbor. The youngest set is now 13 and the oldest just turn 21! In 2007 I became the nanny of two little boys named Brad and Drew. At the time Drew was an infant and was on oxyen due to a heart defect and Brad was 3. I was the Families nanny until Drew went through his surgery and was healthy (about 1 1/2 years) and continue to stay in close touch with the boys as well as babysit them from time to time. In 2008 while I was still with the Family I was nanny to another Family. Logan is now 3 years old and is an absolute heart breaker! As of September 1, 2009 I have been nannying for another Family. Owen is 3 years old and Maggie is 20 months. I nanny for this family Monday through Thursday from 7:30am to 5:30pm. I have nannied for children with various personalities. My last family one child had sever autism and it was a very eye opening experience that I wouldn't change for the world. He is 11 years old and we clicked from day one. We worked on his eye contact, out bursts towards his siblings and overall attitude towards others. He is a fantastic boy and I still help him with his homework when I can =)
