In addition to raising my two children (now adults), I sometimes cared for neighbors' children after school. Also, when they were preschoolers, I cared for their two cousins on a part-time basis. Throughout my teen years I was the neighborhood's favorite babysitter. Currently I have two part-time jobs, one of them every Tues, Fri & Sat. The other involves caring for pets, often involving staying overnight to also "house-sit." If you have pets, they will be well-cared for, too. I have taken many First Aid/CPR courses beginning while I was an elementary school secretary and have continued being certified. I am renewing my training this fall. My experiences with caring for children, along with the example of a wonderful woman who came to our home as a nanny, add up to offer you a reliable and caring person you can trust to care for your children.
