I love children. Though I don't have any of my own, my nephew lived with me from the age of 18 mos. - 3 and a half. He's now 7 and I remain very close to him and my 3-year-old niece. I also babysat frequently throughout high school and college for children ranging in age from newborn to 12 years old. In the past year I have cared for children between the ages of 1 and 6, but I am still completely comfortable with children of any age. I am also comfortable with pets as I have 2 dogs and 2 cats of my own. I'm willing to perform housekeeping duties, as well as run errands, and generally make your life easier. I prefer not to work weekends, but with advance notice, it may be possible on occasion. My First Aid and CPR certifications have recently lapsed, but I intend to have them renewed.
