Parents say I’m the best babysitter they ever met. I feel this is because I treat children like people. I give them the respect they deserve. Mostly , I treat children under my care , just as though they were my own. Parents also wonder why their children never want to leave. That’s easy that’s because they are having fun constantly. They are doing either a craft or a learning game or just simply playing with each other. My home truly becomes their second home for most of the kids. I used to be a corporate mom, traveled the whole United States working 100 hours a week . However, now I still work a 100 hours a week but from home with my 9 year old my son. I have been a mom for 24 years and a grandma for 5 years. Nothing gives me more joy than my children Read more and seeing them grow into wonderful little gentlemen. I have experience with ADHD and Autism. I am CPR trained. Children are my passion. I feel blessed to be able to be with them everyday. I couldn’t imagine a world without children. They are like sunshine.
