Meri’s Bio

I have three children. 8, 5 and 2 months old.
Previously I have I watched two girls, who are now in high school and college 5 days a week from 3 until the parents come home and I brought my two older children with me until my husband comes to pick him up on his way home from work. I am also available on weekends with notice or on a scheduled "shift". My main philosophy working with a family longterm is to become part of the family without interupting the flow of routine and if anything, making life easier for the parents and children. I like to teach children to help themselves in many ways, i.e. making healthy choices, helping with chores (if time is allowed) and also with building good homework skills. If you are wondering how I do this all with a 2 year old? That's a great question! Sometimes, to be honest, it's not easy, but it helps children to adapt better to unique situations and to build patience! Right now, the family I am with part time have been friends on mine for years. The oldest daughter was 9 months when I first starting babysitting her on a weekly basis. She is now 11 and in the sixth grade and it is amazing to watch them grow as I am learning this with my own child. A lot of people wonder why would anyone hire a nanny that has a child with her when there are so many other choices out there. The reason being, I'm a mom. I know the concerns you have. I have the same worries and believe me when I say. I can do it. My responsibilities right now are laundry, clean up, cooking, homework help and transporting the children to at least one activity a day and yes I do this with my son! This is a full time job seasonal and sometimes goes to part time and we make it work! We all adjusted and both the girls, my son and myself love the full time adventures but during the part time work, I need a little extra cash. If you are interested in meeting my family, and seeing if we might be a fit, I'm open to it. It could make a difference in your life:)
 
I'm also a photographer and a drama teacher and run my own business:)
