Meet Leslie

  • Comfortable with pets

When my kids were out of the house I found myself with the opportunity to care for a three week old infant and I was hooked. She stole my heart and I never looked back. I've cared for four children from three weeks on and loved and miss every one of them. My joy has been in watching and helping them grow. Every laugh and roll-over, flower sniff, soccer game, first letter they traced and book I/we read I remember. We sang songs we still sing. We played barefoot in the dirt and they drew with chalk on the sidewalk before able to walk. I never rely only on toys or TV, especially with a baby. Children are much happier with eye, voice and physical contact in their play, and they learn much faster. I love to take them on "adventures", to the park to see the frogs in the Read more creek, to my friend's house to see their tortoise eat lunch, or the backyard to find earthworms in the soil. The wonder in their eyes lets me know I'm on the right track. I moved back here to Lake Bluff less than a year ago and my kids are all over, due to my move or theirs, yet I'm still in all of their lives and I consider myself beyond lucky! I care about not only the children but their environment, their rooms, toys, clothes, and more importantly, their parents. Even pets! I want to find a family I can hopefully laugh, talk and grow with. Without that it not be a good fit for me or most importantly, a child. I'm looking for flexibility and less than 20hrs a week. I have talked with families that just weren't a good fit and I'm really hoping to find the right one.❤️
