Full-time hours

I started babysitting at age 11. I come from a small town where a local babysitter was a high demand. Around the age 15, I had 2 full time babysitting jobs. My first job of the day would be an overnight watch of 3 children since their mother was a nurse who had the overnight shift from 8pm-7am. 10, 5, and 3 were their ages, all boys. I would sleep in the house and wake the children up and feed them in the morning. Once their mom came home, I went to my next job, a family of 2. 12 and 10, brother and sister. That lasted from 8am-6pm. For an entire summer, those were my jobs. At 17 I started working in fast food but took in babysitting jobs when needed. I helped watch a family with 1 son for many months until the mother had her 2nd child. When she was ready to return to work, I gladly accepted her offer of being their babysitter again, now for a 3 year old and a newborn. The family I took care of during my duo-job-summer during the daytime, invited me to be their babysitter for a trip to Fargo for a wedding. It consisted of the 2 children whom I was already watching, and a cousin of theirs of the same age. Once arriving Fargo and at the reception of the wedding, I found myself watching 6 children in total, most between the ages of 6-8 and a 1 year old. All friends and family of the family I had arrived with. With permission of the parents, I took them all to the hotel we all were staying at and took them to the indoor water park, fed them, got them in pajamas, and helped them fall asleep in 1 room. Once the parents returned from their night out at the reception, they took their children back to their own rooms, already asleep. The next morning I was met with one of the mothers and on behalf of the other families, thanked me for taking good care of them while they were out partying, and that they pooled together $200 to pay me for my services, even though I was already being paid for my services by the original family. I am now 21 and currently work in fast food full time, but I wish to change that.

I was able to babysit my neighbors growing up almost every weekend and some week days when the parents would go out. I also was able to nanny over the summer for them while the parents were at work. It was a family of two and between the ages of 2-8. I also made sure that they were able to get physical activity in by going to the park or having activities to do right outside of the house. Along with creating activities like arts and crafts for the children so they continued to grow educationally also.

I'm Ashley, I'm 25 yrs old and have a 7 month old son. I have been a nanny for the last couple years, but have been watching kids for family members a lot longer than that. I love watching kids because I enjoy being around them. I enjoy taking them outside to play and doing arts and crafts with them.
