Caring for children has always been a passion of mine. It's more of a hobby than a job. I love to watch the children grow both intellectually and physically. There is not a more rewarding job than being a Nanny or a mom! Each day is unpredictable. But the one thing you can count on is the numerous hugs and smiles you will receive throughout the day.
Everyday is a learning experience. I take the children on trips to the library, indoor and outdoor parks, to petting zoos, and as soon as the weather gets warm, I take them on a lot more adventures including the zoo and other outdoor family fun!! I love my job and I love these children!!
The family that I nannyed for three and a half years trusted me very much and loved me as I were part of their family. I went with them on week long vacations, watched thier children over night, and for full weekends... I not only watched them at their house, they let me take them to mine as well. We formed a very strong bond. I even got to take the children camping with me a few times for whole weekends. I miss that family dearly, and would like to find a new one to love just as much.
I was a live-in nanny for 2 wonderful children! I got the job from Sittercity.com!!! I am glad they found me. They did a search, found me, liked what they saw, and gave me a call!! I was working at a childcare center, and left to take the opportunity. This was my first experience with this site.
Since then, I was a nanny for a family in Portsmouth VA for two children and a nanny for another family with two children who gave me the experience of being able to go and take my son to Disney World!!!
I just recently stopped caring for a family with three children, one infant and two school age, who I absolutely adore.
My life changed in 2003 when the D'Agati family asked me to be their nanny. From that day, my life had purpose. I have watched so many familys prosper and got to watch so many children grow. I am blessed to be able to say I had a hand in all of it.
I thank God everyday for my lucky stars. For the life I hold and the compassion I share. There is not a day that goes by that I do not acknowledge the fact that He has given me everything. I have a wonderful family, a loving and supportive husband, two beautiful children, and opportunities thrown at me from every angle.
