O'Fallon Mom Looking to Care for Your Children
Avg response < 7 hrs
I have been a flight attendant and loved taking care of small kids, especially when they were flying alone. They were such a joy, and it was easy to give them special care. Some had special medical needs which I had to address. As such, I am certified in CPR, Safety/Security. My goal is to help parents, and to give children exposure to places, learning, art, fun and interacting with other children. Teaching respect and seeing them grow into great adults. I am a very active and outgoing person. I was a live-out nanny for two girls. We became very close as time went on, and they are now like family to me. My duties included light cleaning and cooking, running errands, and making sure the children were cared for above basic needs. I also was the nanny for a severely autistic, but very rewarding, 14-year-old boy and his 4-year-old sister. I learned so much from his special needs, and it made me a better person. I was a nanny for a single dad who worked very long hours, and his son (age 3) was also autistic, though not severe. It was very demanding because of his young age but also very rewarding to see him grow and learn, and to learn to be interactive in the world. The father ended up getting a new job and relocating to Iowa City. I also cared for twin girls born prematurely, so special care was needed. I love to interact and open up a world of nature, learning and fun with young children.
