I was babysitter to all the neighborhood kids.

How they let me "sit" is unbelievable to me now. I was too young! And I "sat" for young kids and babies! What were they thinking?
Luckily, it all was OK, and I always did their dishes and cleaned up so I got lots of money.
Then at 14 I got to start to model and quit that babysitting. I think I made more money babysitting!

Grapevine Babysitter/Nanny

Hello, my name is Crystal and I'm in college studying for my bachelor’s degree. I enjoy helping people and caring for children. I need a job where I can work from home and love what I do; babysitting is the perfect job for me. I have two medium sized dogs that are very sweet. My house is very clean and sanitized. I have 4 years experience babysitting. I'm most comfortable with infants to preschool ages. I just moved to the Grapevine area and I really enjoy it so far and I can't wait to start working again. I'm working on getting CPR and First Aid certified.

Heck, start it now.

I start mine when I get a BFP... but I do it under fake names like Julia Roberts and George Cloony... lol. Then I change the name to me and DH when the shower approaches.
There are just so many things to keep track of... I treat mine like a shopping list. Also, look at fun registries like it's so cool! You can register for meals and babysitting! LOL! And put cool things like cloth diapers (if that's your groove) from LOCAL businesses! SWEET!!!
