the first experience I got being around kids was my Grandmothers day care. I use to visit the day care center every now and then on school holidays. Then i took take of my cousin from her infant years till she was 5years old. Being around kids has always been a part of me. I then heard of being a Aupair. That`s when I decided to take my passion seriously. I took care of 4year old twins, a boy and a girl. I had a very good time with them, although we were not in the same page always but I must say, I learned a lot from them as much as they learned a lot from me too.
