I started working for this family when the first baby was about 8 months old. I continued working for them up until the first born turned 7. While working there, one more beautiful baby was born, by the time i had to leave the family, their ages were 7, 5. I was resonsible for waking them up, feeding, play time, planned fun field trips, and altogether taking care of them as if they were my own children.
