My most recent care has been for 4 boys, ages 8, 7, and twins, age 3. I pick up kids from school and preschool and get in naps and baths the twins. I also fix supper and clean the house. Previous jobs include care for a boy, 11, and a girl, 8. I picked them up at school and tutored them and got their baths. We baked, did crafts and played sports. I cared for 2 girls, ages 3 years and 15 months. I did meals, naps and crafts. I also had 3 boys, ages 5, 4, 2yrs old. I potty-trained the youngest. I picked them up at preschool and school and did homework and crafts and sports. I did respite care with an autistic boy. I attended his daily CAE and needs. I now have two grandsons, ages 6 and 4,and a new granddaughter, age 7 months. They have reminded me what life is all about. We read, play games and do crafts. I love the look on their faces when they learn something new. My husband and I managed a skating rink with after-school care. Every Friday & Saturday night we had about 100 kids under age 14 come and skate. Believe it or not they were very well-behaved, although, their stories were tragic. Some parents dropped them off 2 hours before we got there. We started opening early as we couldn't stand them out in the cold. With the after-school we had snacks and got all of our homework done before we could skate. I had the 18 to 24 months Sunday School class at church. I led after-school care and summer day camp at my church also. My class included 13 children from 8 to 12 years old. I was very routine. We did activities, play and bible study daily and, of course, meals and a nap. My goal is to help raise loved children with self-confidence.

Our kids loved Vickie! She babysat for my daughter and my nephew while we were vacationing on Lake Norman. She fed the kids, played with them, put them to bed, and even cleaned up the house. We wish she lived near us in Virginia. If you want a responsible, caring, fun babysitter who your kids will love, Vickie is the one!
