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.
