Great Babysitter For Date Nights!
As a babysitter and mother's helper since age 12, I honestly love children! I have a great deal of experience with children of all ages, particularly infants, toddlers, and elementary school age. For infants and toddlers, I'm usually more comfortable sitting for one at a time because they require extra effort. Around ages five and up, I am comfortable caring for multiple children at once. I can cook meals, clean up, put children to bed, and whatever is required pertaining to the children. I am very friendly, enthusiastic, and kind, but will be firm with your children when it comes to safety, discipline, and manners. When I babysit for a child who speaks (or is learning to speak), I ensure there is mutual respect and politeness (saying please, thank you, etc.) while we play and have fun. My go-to activities when caring for children include (but are not limited to) playing games, reading books, arts and crafts (coloring, drawing, play-doh, sculpey, etc), and going outside (to the park, for a walk, etc., weather permitting). A few things I enjoy playing the ukulele, hands-on arts and crafts projects, and reading science articles!
