Mother's Helper: An Extra Hand
I began caring for children when my little brother was born (6yr age difference). From the start, I took an interest in changing his diapers, dressing him, dancing around the room with him, and simply being a constant for him.
My world opened up when I began babysitting a family's kids at the age of 13. They had a 1yr old boy and 3yr old girl. As the family grew, my love expanded as well. There are numerous families that I would be close to the mother and see her through pregnancy and love the child since before birth.
I have a particular love for infants-3yr-olds, but I have babysat kids up through age 11. For a year I gave piano lessons to six girls ranging from K-5 graders. It was tremendous fun!
Recently, I had my first overnight experience with four kids (11 months, 3yrs, 7yrs, 8yrs). Rarely do I watch just one child, but I have never exceeded watching more than four on my own.
