The last three summers I was a nanny for a girl that is now 11 years old. We were always active and had so much fun. Growing up I have always babysat in my neighborhood with children of all ages. I still keep in contact with at least 3 of the families that I babysit every once in awhile. I have a little brother who is 9 and I grew up watching him. I babysit twins about 2 times a month and one of the girls calls me her sister and I love that I can be such a great role model to her.
