My most recent experience was with my boyfriends 10 nephew's and nieces, from newborns to 8 years old. I've started teaching 3 of the girls how to play guitar. I change diapers, play with toy ponies and throw a baseball with little mikey the only boy. They are great kids and they all look up to me and love to come see my kitten, especially mikey who is a huge animal lover. I also have a horse who all of them love. I love spending time with them.

I also have been working for months at the xx, which is a facility that does gymnastics based classes from children from the ages of 4 months to 12 years old. There I've done mommy and me classes for children up to 3, then classes without parents for 3 years and up.
