< 1 yr of experience

My name is Ruby, I’m a 24 year old mother of a beautiful little girl. My mother had seven of us and being that she couldn’t be around much I took the role, as anyone would. Taking care of children came so natural to me. Along the way I’ve babysat for families but nothing too serious as I always had a full time job. It’s something I absolutely adore and I would love to do for the rest of my days.
