My nanny/baby-sitting experience started at pretty young age. The first family I baby-sat for was a friend of the family and also my youngest cousin at the time. I really loved taking care and being responsible for another human being so I started to baby-sit part-time during the summer. After having much experience with both of the families, I thought I would start a mini baby-sitting business. I put up signs around my neighborhood and a lot of the time it was word of mouth. I really enjoyed taking care of babies and toddlers, so I thought giving older children a try, so I would have experience at both ends of spectrum. After a couple of months, I got my second job as a baby-sitter for a family in my neighborhood. Her children were ages 10 and 7. They were pretty self-sufficient, the only thing I really had to do was keep them entertained, which was a lot of fun for me. After a year with them, I got another job offer with a family that had a set of twins that were 4 years old at the time. I decided to take the job, because it was a little closer to home and was within walking distance. I cared for the children 4 days a week and that is when I started to nanny. I got the children up each morning, fed them helped them get situated for the day and usually every day we had a different activity to do, which I enjoyed most. I loved taking them to different places so they can see and experience the outside world. I also fed them; created activities inside and outside, read them books and etc. The nanny position lasted until the children when to school full-time which was about 4 years ago. After the children went to school full-time, I got another nanny position for a family who just moved to the area and wanted a nanny close and reliable. I was recommended to the family through a family members co-worker. I was with the family from 2002-2009 and I look at the children as one of my own. I started to watch the children when they were 2 and 5 years old and have seen them grow into independent and beautiful children. I still nanny on occasion when the family either needs help or just wants to go out for the night. My latest and greatest nanny job was with the last family I was with until I decided to move to Arizona. I started watching the little girl when she was 5 months old and ended when she was roughly 17 months old. This nanny position was the best experience ever. I saw all of her milestones that included; rolling over, crawling, walking, and the most enjoyable was able to hear her first words. It was the most rewarding job that I ever had. My relationship with her is still very strong and I talk to her Mom once a week to see how she is doing. It was really wonderful to know how much of an impact I did have on her life the whole year I was with her. My entire past nanny experiences were rewarding in different ways, but this one was especially rewarding because of all the different stages I really got to see first hand.

The last family I nannied for, I was with, on and off for seven years. Their children have become like my own, and watching them grow has been such a blessing. When I started nannying for this family, my goal was to get them away from the television as much as possible and get them to be interactive. We played sports, did arts and crafts, played games, swam, and went on outings. Evan, the middle child had a lower self-esteem, so I took it upon myself to work with him diligently. He felt he was in competition with his older sister, and acted out, many times hurting her feelings. I got down on his level and very calmly asked him how he would feel if someone acted that way towards him. I understood that his acting out came from a need to have individual attention and praise, so I spent one on one time with him and his relationship with his sister improved tremendously. I am a hands on caregiver and believe it is extremely important to engage children from a very early age. When the fourth child Charlotte came along I spent ample time with her as well. Some activities I did with her were listening to music and doing movement exercises, to build stronger motor development skills. She was a bit colicky, so I held her a lot so she would feel safe and nurtured. Additionally, I helped to get her on a more strict sleeping regimen, because she liked to be up for hours in the middle of the night! I helped prepare meals for all four of the children, helped the older ones with their homework, cleaned up after them, including laundry and dishes. I would then get them bathed and ready for bed, read to them, and clean the house a bit more after they fell asleep. In college I took a movement therapy class, and we studied the motor development stages from infancy through adulthood. When I work with children (especially infants) I mimick movements and facial expressions because it is a very positive reinforcement to the child. It helps the child to develop itself as an individual and learns that its emotions and expressions are valued and recognized. I not only have experience with children from nannying, but have taught creative writing and movement to children ages 5-17 for the Scottsdale Center for the Arts. I taught for them three years consecutively and absolutely loved the interaction with my kids. Some of the children had unstable lives at home, and through creative expression they were able to start trusting their peers, and express themselves without judgement. I strongly believe that expression and working through art helps children gain self-esteem and develop a more confident sense of self. It's not just about changing diapers, feeding, and making sure the children are safe (although these are all important responsibilities); I truly love children and like to be involved in their rearing, doing educational activities with them, and promoting their unique passions and talents.

Since I was 10 years old, I began helping my Sunday School teacher at my local church watch over infants and toddlers during services. There, I met many families who needed "outside church" assistance, and began baby sitting for several families with 1-3 children, ages infant to 5 years old. There were a total of three families that I stayed with as the children, and myself, got older. The family/babysitter relationships were maintained anywhere from a couple months to 6 years. I have a great comfort level with any age, and was trusted by families with infants as young as 3 months old. Seeing children grow up as I babysat them throughout the years was by far one of the most rewarding things about being a babysitter. There's something about developing that positive, role-model relationship with children that honestly fills my heart with joy. When families kept me around for several years, I was able to become a part of the children's lives -- nothing put a bigger smile on my face than seeing how happy it made the kids when they found out, "Lauren is coming over!"
