I'm 53 years old and a natural caregiver. I began caregiving when I was a child, myself. At the age of 11 I began taking on toddlers and preschool-aged children, and at 12, somehow adults trusted me with newborns! This was famously written about by an author I worked for, , when she shared with the world in a book that, at the age of 12, I fed a 3-month-old. (The parents told me that there was cereal in the cabinet, so I found the breakfast of champions.)
I've learned a lot since then, and nannied for families of every description: 2 parents, single parents, gay & straight parents, families with one child, 2 children, 4 children (they had twins), families with grandparents who also needed a helping hand now & then, a farm family, families with pets. I love night nurse jobs.
I nannied from 18 years old to 32, and then owned & operated my own pet care business in Marin county, CA.
