Ever since I was a baby I went to a babysitter and when I turned 10 she let me be a helper and paid me weekly. When I was 18/19 I worked at a day care in PA for about 8 months. My sister had her first child 3 years ago and I've been there helping her ever since and a year later she had another one and she's also pregnant again so I've been taking care of infant/toddlers for a couple years now!
