My name is Cherrie Thompson. I am 59 and I am looking for part-time babysitting positions, something to help fulfill some time. I am married and have a grown daughter. We have a large family and I have always babysat all of my nieces and nephews, and currently still do on occasion. I have been babysitting since I was ten years old. I love children. Being able to teach them new things, learn from them, and help them grow is such a joy. I love reading, music, cooking, crafting, coloring, crocheting and loom knitting, learning new things and having fun. I can also help out with homework. For the past two years I have been babysitting three boys, ages 6, 10, and 13 for before and after school. I have done all of the above with them. We have become close and I consider them to be my surrogate grandkids. Read more I also occasionally do date nights for their parents as well. I have also assisted the family with light house keeping, laundry and cooking. My schedule is pretty flexible and I am willing to work all hours. I have had CPR and first aid training. I come from a family of five children, and I am also a twin. I also love pets, and have two dogs and a cat currently. My husband and I have been married for 36 years. I am a high school graduate, and I also have an AA Degree from Spokane Community College. I am also a part-time Tupperware Consultant. I am comfortable around all kinds of people, and I love helping them out in whatever ways that I can. I am happy to meet with you ahead of time. I am happy to chat with you and answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to call me on my cell or text or email me. I will get back to you as soon as I can. Thank you for considering me for your possible babysitting needs. I look forward to helping you and your families in whatever ways I can.
