Hello! I absolutely love children of all ages. In high school and college, I baby sat children from a few weeks old to 12 years. I have graduated college now and am back in the Portland, OR area. I have worked with a lot of multiple-children families and am comfortable with multi-tasking.     I love active play as well as doing art projects and baking with the children that I am caring for. I don’t believe that you are paying me to watch your children watch television, so I try to make sure we are always doing some sort of activity. I have tutored children in many subjects and if your kids are school-aged, their homework is a priority of mine.   I speak Spanish at a conversational level and am always up for teaching kids some basic Spanish while I am with them. I also can sign ASL. Read more   If you need help with any housework (such as laundry or prep-cooking, etc.), I would love to assist with that while the children are sleeping or engaged in another project.    I look forward to meeting your family!

Kenzie took care of our 10 and 7 year old daughters while we were at a wedding couple of weeks ago. We were in town from Seattle and stayed at a hotel. The girls loved her. She's fun, energetic and has an awesome senses of humor. The day was long and she managed to entertain them with a swim in the hotel pool and outing to a local pizza restaurant. We got home and the kids were fast asleep. No messing around with bed times! I'm bummed that Kenzie is in Portland and we're in Seattle. We would be thrilled to have her as a regular sitter. I can't recommend Kenzie enough.
