Now I am taking care of a 2 yo boy, who I'm responsible to feed him, play, do his laundry and help with some light housecleaning and of course give a lot of love for him. But when I was au pair I took care of two children, a baby boy who was 5 months and the girl was 4 years old, there I developed a friendly relationship with the family and keep doing Skype with the kids, and after it I took care of an 8 year old girl, who I was responsible to get ready for school, prepare her meals, play, help her with homework and organize her toys and clothes. Before that in Brazil I worked in a kindergarten with children from 4 months to 2 yo, and took care of a baby who was 5 months when I started and 13 months when I finished.
