Being the oldest of four, caring for children has always been my thing. I babysat for multiple families in my neighborhood all throughout high school. I have nannied for 2 families for a total of 6 years. The first family, the children were (4 and 7 when I started)10 and 7. My duties were to maintain the light housekeeping, pick up and drop off children from school and to after school activities, pack and unpack lunches, assist with homework, prep family dinners. The family does not need my help anymore since both of the kids will be attending the same school next year and will be riding the bus. I was with them from 2011 to 2014. The second family I nannied for, the children were (12,10 and 8) 14,12 and 10. My duties were basically the same as with my first family. This family has decided they do not need a nanny anymore since all their kids will be riding the bus and the oldest will be 15 in a few months. I still keep in touch with both families and we will always remain friends.
