Successful Mom of 2 Blessings!
My name is Terrie. I found your listing for care for your child and would love to assist you with your childcare needs. My given name is Theresa, which means "nurturer." I am an active, successful mom of 2 grown, wonderful children as well as being the oldest of 5 - literally born a babysitter. If these qualifications don't reflect a natural love for children, I'm not sure what does. I want to make a difference in both children and their parents' lives, not just "watch" kids watch TV or play electronic/computer games.
Please allow me tell you a little about myself. I have CPR/First Aid training for infants and children (May 2010) and my background check is complete and perfect. I am also a proud Army brat as well as an Air Force veteran myself. I have always been very active with my children; we participated in Boy and Girl scouts, cheer leading, baseball, swimming, gymnastics and basketball. I prefer walking and the park over TV any day of the week. I recently moved to Woodstock after living in the Gwinnett area for 16 years.
I have a strong belief in reading and both my children are a reflection of that. I am a happy and optimistic person that truly enjoys being with children. I would like to help you and put your mind at ease, whether it is evening or even overnight. I am very organized, love to cook, work in my yard, and am an avid walker. I also have 3 furry kids (dogs) and so I am very comfortable around pets and happy to help around the house.
Because I was a full-time working mother in administration and accounting, and having been married for 30 years, I know and understand full well how important it is for parents to provide for their family as well as having a date night on a regular basis. The importance of the successful blend of work and family is only possible when parents truly know and trust that their children are being cared for by someone involved, mature and responsible that will love and care for them as their own, not just as another babysitter.
I have GREAT references too! Thank you for your consideration, I look forward to hearing from you! Sincerely, Terrie M.
