I grew up in a small mountain community, and started babysitting around age 12. I babysat for weddings, seasonal visitors, and families who lived in the area. The family had 4 kids ages ranging from 1-12. I would typically babysit after school and on weekends, doing everything from playing in the snow (after homework of course) to cooking dinner and cleaning the house. After I put the kids to bed, I would do any chores left, and just hang out until the parents returned home. My husband of 3 years and I just moved to the Springville and Porterville area (he grew up here).
