Amber’s Bio

I'm going to try to keep it as short as possible, lol I know you probably don't have time to read a whole novel! ;)
I currently live in Riverside, IL. I've lived here since April 2013. I grew up in Cicero, IL and went to a Catholic school up until 8th grade. Once I graduated 8th grade my family moved to Naperville, IL. Since then I have moved around a few times...ranging from Cicero to Aurora.
I have 1 little brother who turned 5 years old in March 2015 and I also have a twin brother. My twin was diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome when he was 4 years old. Ever since I was little, my mother always called me his "second mom". I always took care of him in anyway possible and still do. I'm very protective of my siblings. I started babysitting at the age of 12. I would watch my twin brother while my mom was at work. Then "word got around"...family members and my moms friends wanted me to start babysitting for them. I loved it and I started babysitting all the time.
When I babysit I like keeping the child/children busy and I never want them to be bored. Some things I love to do while babysitting is coloring, painting, arts & crafts, watching movies, playing board games, going on outings (beach, zoo, park)...etc. Even though I like to have fun, I still believe in rules and discipline! I know that every family is different and has different rules. I make sure to follow whatever rules apply for that household! ;)  I'm not one of those babysitters that come over and sit on the computer or stay on the phone the whole time and let the kids do whatever they want. I think that is ridiculous! I believe in building a relationship with the families I babysit for, especially the kids!! 
If you have any questions feel free to ask. I hope to get to know you and your family!

We are so happy that we have found Amber, our 3 year-old had such a great time with her. Amber is very energetic, enthusiastic and thorough. She arrived on time, asked all the right questions and immediately put me at ease. When I came home, the house was neat but there was lots of evidence of fun activities that she did with our daughter - painting, coloring, playing, bike riding, towers building. She even made certain that the pets were taken care of! My daughter keeps asking when we are going to leave her with the babysitter again! And we will!

My 5 year old had a great time with Amber & has asked to have sit again. Amber has a great deal of energy and immediately connected with my girls when she met them. She asks good questions & really tries to get to know you as well as the children. Amber called to confirm the day we needed her, so my mind was put to ease.

I am so happy that I found Amber through Sittercity.com. She is great with my two kids. She did all kinds of activities with them and they were so happy that she was there. Amber was on time, bubbly and I would recommend her for anyone else looking for a sitter/nanny for the future.
