I have been working as nanny for 7 years. I have worked for several families but currently have been with the same family for 4 years. I have had the pleasure of watching the children grow over the years and it is beyond rewarding. I just recently had my daughter who was born in December. She is my world and my children I nanny for think of her as their own sister. I am hoping to find a family that will allow me to bring my daughter with me. My daughter and myself have become a part of the family that I nanny for and I hope to be able to find another family that would embrace us.
