I used to take care of my sisters when I was 15. My mom had gotten divorced and she was the bread-winner in my house. I helped around the house as much as I could, I did laundry, grocery shopping, meal prep, I tutored my sisters when they had homework, and I ran her errands. A few years later, after moving out of my mom's house and going to live with my dad I babysat for his neighbor. An amazing single mom named Emily. She had a sweet daughter named Ellena and sometimes when Emily would go out with her girlfriends, they would also leave their kids with me (4 total). I did scavenger hunts for them so they wouldn't watch TV for too long. If I could get them interested enough I would try to play some type of interactive game (board or construction games) and I cooked dinner Read more for them often. Because of my summer job, I have CPR and First Aid certifications. I work as a Senior Deckhand for tour-boats in the Chicago River, a kind of job that requires that I am ready for any emergency situation any given moment (firefighting included). Your kids will be in good hands.
