Meet Melanie

My name is Melanie and i’m 20 years old. I am the oldest out of 4 siblings. I have experience with all ages. My brothers are ages 5 and 14 and my sister is age 16. I grew up having a single mother so I’ve had to step up a lot and help her out especially with taking care of my siblings. I am great with any age. I am reliable and I do have my own car. If you need me to babysit often or just temporarily I’m your person.
