I am a mature mother of 3 children who are grown, last son graduated high school this year and is off tto college and 2 are traveling the world. I have experience in all ages of raising my own and also many years of carpooling and having nieces and nephews and our children's friends to tend to and babysit. I love children and have experienced the trials of blending a family with my husband of 10 years and I have seen much joy as I attended volleyball games, baseball, basketball, swimming lessons, children's church, youth group, dancing lessons, singing lessons, school plays and also as I homeschooled for a few years. I am firm but involved at every level. I can multi task and I am able to stay calm in emergencies and make sound decisions. My hope is to help a family who is looking for someone that will love their children and work at helping with meal prep, cleaning, laundry and running errands. I am an "empty nester" now and not ready to stop being a mom and know what it is like having a career and finding dependable care with a nurturing heart.
