Meet Melissa

Hi! My name is Melissa. I am a mother of 3 daughters. I started out watching the children of my parents friends when I was about 10 y/o. Parents and kids loved me and I continued babysitting through my teenage years. My husband and I started a family sooner than we had planned. We got custody of my husbands 2 year old half-sister after her mother passed away. We were young, and at the time, unmarried. We soon got married, adopted her and had 2 more children. I absolutely love kids! I feel like a kid at heart, and I think that is why I can play like one! I am CPR and first aid certified and have reliable transportation.

Melissa was great, she helped watch our 2 boys (ages 4 & 5) and their friend (also aged 5) so we parents could get out for a double date night. She was familiar with the dynamics of kids this age and had a good command of their schedule and behavior (not an easy thing for 3 young boys). We would certainly consider asking her to come watch the kids again next time we are in the Tahoe area.
