I grew up as a babysitter with a 10 year difference to 8 little cousins. I having been playing with kids what seems like the majority of my life. As a teenagers, I was a life-guard where the children were left alone and the lifeguards became babysitters too. In my twenties, I was a nanny for an attorney and single mom of 2 elementary aged girls. Today, I am a stay-at-home mom to our 2 sons born in 2010 and 2014. I enjoy and routinely read books from child brain development to proper nutrition, discerning what are the best practices for us. My belief is that children must be validated for their accomplishment, questions, thoughts, and expressions. My goal is to raise men who will respect and care for themselves and others. I seek for opportunities that will help them develop intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally. I am this person, therefore I will take the same approach with your beloved.
