  About Me
 
I grew up near the beach in Oxnard, CA. My parents are high school sweethearts, and they are still married today. I believe that growing up with parents who have a solid relationship builds a great foundation for bringing up children. Therefore, with that said, I am 26 years old, very responsible, respectful and respected, reliable, loyal, and playful around children. I just moved back to Bakersfield from San Diego in March 2016 to live with my parents. My parents act like my friends and joke around; therefore, we have a good relationship.

I do not have children of my own; however. I have experience taking care of small children recently. For the past four years I have visited a friend many times, and she has her own kids and grandchildren in her home visiting as well. Her grandkids vary from age 4 mos-10 yrs. I have been outside to play basketball with them, run around, pick them up, tickle, etc. However, most recently I relocated to San Diego in October and lived with a middle school friend. She has twins (boy & girl) and at the time I moved down south they were 10 mos old. Although I visited often, it was the first time I would live with babies. Moreover, my responsibilities consisted of watching them consistently because they learned how to walk and ran everywhere. Of course I changed diapers and prepared their meals, but the most enjoyable moments were when we played together. Also I am certified by the National CPR Foundation in first aid and CPR.

Also, I am Diabetic, but do take care of myself so I can perform my duties to the fullest. To tie in with that, some dislikes would have to be: very few fried foods, and long and excessive workouts/exercise. Otherwise, there aren't too many things that I don't like that I can think of immediately. I have two main hobbies that I think are somewhat different than anyone else; taking road trips or just take a drive around town, and to watch documentaries.

Moreover, I am a very ethically-driven person. As I worked for the same company for nearly 8 years, I have experience with others depending and relying on me. The skills I learned while being employed taught me a little bit more about responsibility. Meaning, I carry out my duties. I love children, and if I can handle deadlines and take care of twins, then I don't think taking care of children is a problem.

  Work Experience & Education Background
 
1 years experience, 2 references
I have had 5 months of experience living with a friend who had twins. They were 10 months old when I moved in, and a little older than 1 yr when I left in March of this year. I changed a lot of dirty diapers, prepared their meals and bottles, played and exercised with them, chard them around nonstop, and we took naps together.

We built a strong relationship during my time with them.

All I can say is that I am very gentle, and take care of children as if they were mine (with t. l. c. )
