I have been watching children since a very young age because I am the oldest out of four children. With my sibling I was responsible for driving them to and from activities, making them dinner and keeping them active during the summer while my parents worked. Along with watching my siblings I have watched neighbors, relatives and friends. While I watch children I like to keep them active with outdoor activities, crafts, inside games and minimal amounts of TV watching. If the children nap I use that time to clean up messes, do laundry (if needed), and clean the house up to make sure that the parents don't have to deal with new messes. I am a full-time paramedic with Allina so I am mostly available for date nights and some days when children do not have school.
