Since a young age I always enjoyed helping my mom take care of my younger cousins. As soon as I was able to I took and was certified to babysit. It started with assisting my mother watch infants and toddlers in my own home and eventually I graduated to babysitting for neighbors and friends at their own homes. Five families come to mind as my major experiences; 2 families with 2 girls each, another family with 3 girls under the age of 6, a new born boy, and a 5 year old girl. I cannot pick any gender or age as my favorite, but love the experiences each brings. Babies are tough because they cannot explain their needs the same why a 5 year old would, but that 5 year old requires much more entertainment. I have found that each children will bring it's own laughter, exhaustion, and fun.
