Utah - 5 children (7,5,18mo, 18mo, 9mo when started). Started Oct 2014. This position was a mothers helper with a SAHM. Main responsibilities were to entertain the three youngest so mom could get some work done around the house and take care of older two. It was crazy, but fun! Washington State - 2 girls ages 5 & 8 (when started position) - Sept 2011 to July 2014. This position was a household manager/nanny position. Nanny duties include - Driving girls to/from school and after school activities. Assisting in homework. Preparing healthy lunches & dinners. Planning/arranging and carrying out play-date outing (zoo, movies, museums, arts & crafts, cooking, etc). Helping in school classroom when needed (library, art, cooking). Assisting with soccer (carpool, coaching, helping up to 8 girls get dressed and ready). Carpooling to ski lessons. Household manager duties - Grocery shopping. Preparing healthy meals. Laundry. Daily dished and tidy kitchen. Errand running. Organizing and de-cluttering girls room and playroom. Scrapbooking and photo organization. Decorating for holidays. Many other tasks. Utah - 1 boy-4mo, 2 girls-3&6 (when started) - Nov 2009 to June 2011. Activities I did with baby: He and I enjoyed reading together, playing with the big Lego blocks, going for walks, trips to that park, playing with bubbles, drawing with big sisters, and rolling around on the floor. He wasn't that fond of tummy time, but we still did it. The youngest girl had diabetes. I helped to plan healthy meals (for all children)and calculate proper dosage of insulin. I maintained her blood sugar levels throughout the day and adjusted them when needed by either giving her food or insulin, depending on her number. During the school year I worked with her every day on preschoool appropriate activities (math, reading, writing, calendar time, art & crafts). We went on occasional outings to the parks, mall, movies, zoo, museums. When we were at home we danced, played Wii, made play houses out of large cardboard boxed, played on swingset in back yard, rode bikes, etc. The older girl was in school most of the time. During summer we did all the earlier mentioned activities, and in addition we did daily "school time" activities. Although the children were my main responsibility I helped out with dinners, laundry, and housekeeping as well. I still keep in touch with this family and see them when I can. They are family to me now and will stay that way forever :) I have worked for two other family that were short term, but all had the same responsibilities.
