In 2009, I nannied for two boys ages 3 and 4, the four year old being mildly autistic. I brought them to indoor and outdoor playgrounds, therapy, and ran errands. I prepared meals, changed diapers, potty trained, dressed them, did the dishes, cleaned, and put them down for naps. It was challenging work but I enjoyed it thoroughly. 2010-2011 I nannied for three children (4,6, and 8). I got them ready in the morning, made them breakfast, drove them to and from school, friend's houses, sporting activities, etc. I did school shopping, cooking, baking, cleaning, grocery shopping and cared for them while sick. I assisted with homework, did arts and crafts, played games and cared for three bunnies in addition to three children. 2011-2012 I cared for two girls ages 1 and 3, did light housework, brought them to many activities such as the childrens' museum, giggle factory, Walker Art Center's Arty Pants, Toddler Tuesdays at Mall of America and many more. I did the research to find this activities and bring them there. We always had places to go, crafts to make, books to read, and much more. I provided a safe and educational environment for those girls to grow. The family is moving and I will miss them immensely.

I have been watching children since i can remember. I moved to Woodbury when i was in the 2nd grade to a street full of young families. by the time i was 15 i had started watching 4 of the families on my street. I have also watched my little cousins many many times. They are 3,6,8, and 12 and i have watched them all at the same time. One of the neighbor family's that i watched on my street had a child with ADHD so when he had his off days i had to make sure he was doing something that made him happy and something that kept him under control. With him i also had to use discipline at times because he was not always the best listener. My first job that I had was a a children's birthday place called Club Just Jump. there i was considered a "party hostess". i was in charge of parties with as many as 5 to 30 kids of all ages. I played games with them and came up with fun activities to do, made sure everyone was getting along and that there was no fighting, and made sure everyone was having a good time! that was such a fun job for me because i got to come to work and hang out with all the kids. I also volunteered at a local elementary school at the after school program. I handed out snack, helped with homework, did arts and crafts, and also played with all the children. My best friends mom used to have a day care at there home and i helped out there a lot just playing with the kids and taking them on walks.
