I was an aupair in chicago for a year, took care of 4 kids (9 months, 3 , 5 and 7 years old) I had to take them and pick them up from school. I had to go everywhere with them: to museums, parks, library, playdates. I had to prepare their meals, do their laundry, bath them and change diapers to the little one. I helped them out with homework and school projects. They had swimming classes and I was with them all the time inside the pool. I sometimes had to stay with them all the weekend all by myself.
