When I was 12 years old I began working as a "mothers helper" with several of the younger neighborhood children. At 13 I began babysitting regularly for a wide variety of ages. When I was 15, I started nannying part time for a family. They had a 2 year old boy at the time and I watched him until he was 8. My responsibilities with this family were to first and foremost make sure the child was safe and all his needs met. I was also responsible for potty training him, keeping the house clean, feeding and walking the dogs, preparing meals, transporting the boy around town to his activities (swimming, tennis, piano, etc.), provide tutoring, accompany the family on vacations and care for the boy for a few consecutive days when the parents had to go out of town. I moved away from this family for college in 2007. In college, I was a full time nanny for a busy couple (trauma surgeon, corporate attorney) who had 2 children. There oldest was 6 when I began and 8 when I left. In December 2010 the couple had a second child. Other than the time the oldest was in school, I had both children, 10 hours a day, 5 days a week. I began watching the newborn for this amount of time when he was 8 weeks old. I was responsible for keeping the baby on a very strict (eat, play, sleep) schedule. Other than the normal things one does when caring for an infant (changing diapers, feeding, bathing, etc.) I was responsible for transitioning the infant onto purred and solid foods, doing the laundry, cleaning the home, caring for the dog, picking up the older child from school, taking him wherever he needed to be as far as after school activities went, helping him with homework, preparing meals, making grocery lists and sometimes going to the grocery store for the family, keeping the house organized and taking the children to the pool during the summer. Before the second child was born, I was also responsible for keeping the older child for up to a few weeks at a time when the parents would go out of town. Although it was not required, I also attended special events the children may have had (baptism, musicals, spelling bees, etc). Along with nannying, I babysit for a few families around town. The ages of these children ranges from 2-11.

My older sister Kandice had two premature babies because she was a type one diabetic and wasn't supposed to give birth. One was born when I was only thirteen years old and he was born four months early and came home on oxygen. You always had to wash your hands to take care of him and be very gentile. The nurses said that he wasn't supposed to live after three years old and he is now almost nine years old and is as healthy as can be. Her second son was only born exactly one year and five days later. He also was premature but not nearly as small. I took care of both of these boys for almost seven years non-stop. I lived with Kandice for a number of years helping her with her household duties and keeping up with the kids; she even went on to become a CNA while I took care of her kids. I was the only one she liked watching over them over long periods of time because I also had to accompany them on a move across the United States while I had the kids and they were trying to get everything situated. It is extremely difficult to be germ-free around two babies; especially when one of them can get deathly ill at any second and the other one is running around like a mad man. These two boys made me realize how much I enjoy children, enjoy being around them or taking care of them.

I have baby-sat in the past and have found that I love children! They are so much fun and always have something new to share or discover. I was in a program for four years and loved every second I was able to spend with my little buddy. As well, I have baby-sat my younger brothers and neighbors' kids as well. The youngest child I have ever cared for was 2 weeks old so I have valuable experience with newborns. I have been left in charge overnight of my younger brothers when my parents went out of town during high school, and have done many overnight jobs since. I have been a nanny several times before and I loved it! My current job is also a graveyard shift for a 8-month old, I've been watching him since he was two weeks old, and I love the family and the kids. When it's time to move on, I can't wait for the chance to care for your children!
