I'm 29 years old and have been changing diapers since I was 13. I've cared for kids from the ages of 2 months-13 years.
During high school, I took an early childhood and development class, which also required each student in the class to volunteer at the school's daycare program. After school, I had a job at a gym daycare where I looked after kids of all ages while their parents worked out.
When I was 20, I decided to move to California for a change of scenery and while living there, I ended up babysitting 3 of my cousin's kids. One of them had 2 girls, ages 2 and 5. Another had 3 boys, a newborn and a 2 and 3-year-old and the last cousin (whom I lived with) had his 3-year-old son every weekend. He worked a lot during the weekend so the majority of the time I looked after him.
When I moved back to Seattle after being in California for a year and a half, I got a job at a home daycare/preschool. There I cared for children from 3 months-5 years old for 3 years. I was the assistant to my boss and mostly cared for infants and "waddlers", but my boss and I switched every now and then so I could play dress-up and sail on pirate ships with the toddlers and older kids. I also took on other tasks such as preparing & cooking meals and cleaning as needed. Being at the daycare has taught me much more about kids of various ages than I knew before.
I enjoy being active, being outdoors, reading, coloring and educating. I'm kind of like a big kid myself. It's a great feeling teaching kids and watching them grow and learn the things you teach them. I have a 2-year-old nephew and have been babysitting him since January and the knowledge he's gained from even just a couple months ago is amazing.
During my free-time, like I previously stated, I love being outdoors (hiking, camping, fishing, etc.) and being active. I'm very athletic and enjoy almost any sport there is which includes playing volleyball and basketball, hitting baseballs, tossing a football and snowboarding. Coloring (and other art work) has just always been something I love to do. I've been told I'm very artistic.
During nice days with kids, you'll probably find us at the park, zoo or pool/beach. And rainy/chilly days are the best for doing art or reading books.
