My first babysitting job was at 14 for two little girls back home in Connecticut. We had an absolute ball together. Ever since then I knew it was job meant for me. I STILL keep in contact with them, 10 years later we're Facebook friends. I moved to Chicago when I was 18 and was lucky enough to find a family right next door to me! I started when they were 5 & 2. Now they are 6 & 9. I've loved watching them grow up. I still see them occasionally and the whole family has become very dear to me! As well as the family next door I had the absolute pleasure of sitting for a family two mornings a week for 5 years. I started with their little girl at 18 months - and now she is 6!! Time flies. In the middle of my long-term positions I Read more have occasionally babysat for many different Chicago families. Ages ranging from newborn to teenage. I am comfortable with all age groups and can handle multiple children. As you can tell from my short description of experience that I like to be long-term, part of the family. It is not a requirement but if it's what you're looking for I am for it! Kids really enjoy seeing the same sitter and it's easier on everyone. I am very easy going and like to feel comfortable in a home, and I want you to feel comfortable having me come to your home! Thanks so much for reading, please feel free to ask me any questions!
