I am a mom of a beautiful 18 month year old little prince and an almost 5 year old little princess, I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old, all through high school and college and after. I absolutely love kids! I just finished working with a wonderful family for the last 2 years. I am hoping to find a great new family to help and be a second arm you can trust and depend on! Being a mom 24/7 was a game changer, because as you know, babysitting and actually having a child are totally different spectrums of experience. I have learned so much more from becoming a mom of two and can add so much more now to a family that I help. My main favorite thing to do with children, other than playing with them, is helping them learn their milestones and developing them further Read more with arts and crafts and educational activities. I am looking for a nice child or family to help out with either as a nanny or a babysitter. I just finished working for a family for 2 years that had a sweet as can be autistic girl and a very athletic boy, who I adored. That experience helped me learn even more than I thought possible, so now I am ready to tackle anything ! I am a big believer in home cooked meals so often I offer to cook healthy meals for the child or family if they are with me at breakfast, lunch or dinner. I have a reliable 2018 Toyota Highlander and leased it as it won best midsize suv for safety. I can drive to the library, park and children's museums/zoos if allowed to and would enjoy doing this for your child. I believe that its very important to start teaching a child skills to constantly learn, talk, interact and read, thus I often bring things with me for child development such as books, games, crafts and try to make it very fun for the child. I am flexible with my schedule and can drive your child around to their school, sports or music activities. I am a very safe driver with a clean record. We can set up an initial meeting so you can meet me and see how I interact with you child or family! I am always eager to meet new people and love new kids! I am also open to taking the child or children ( if siblings) to my house and watching them. I have a baby proofed house with a designated "kid area" with many toys and activities!
