I have been a nanny for 8 years now here in Virginia and feel so lucky to have discovered the thing I love doing at such a young age. Each family I have cared for has been such a blessing to me in that they have individually taught me important life lessons of love and togetherness. And best of all, having fun! My most recent position has been for 5 years, begining care at 6 months and continuing on to age 5, and a now 5 month old I've been caring for since birth. Prior to my current family, I have cared for a then 8 week old and then 2 year old, for 2 years, as well as FOUR girls... a then 16 month old, two 3 year olds, and a 7 year old.
