|Introduction||My name is Jenni and I am a babysitter. I have been since age 11. See, I grew up in the 80's. Microwave popcorn had just been invented, and it was perfectly normal for parents to hire an 11-year-old to watch their 3 kids in exchange for $2.50 an hour and unlimited access to fruit roll-ups. If there were no pre-teens available, they might even leave their children in the station wagon with the windows cracked while they shopped for groceries or knocked back a couple of Sea Breezes at the bar. |
Even though times have changed, I like to think I've retained some of the old fun-lovin' spirit of the 80's (but with a LOT less cocaine) and incorporated it into my style of babysitting. I've simply added a few safety precautions to update it to modern times. For example, it's great to slide down the stairs on air mattress toboggans, but only if you can pass a comprehensive coordination test that involves running through the house in socks holding an egg in your mouth.
All in all, my babysitting success is due not only to a youthful zest for life and light ESP, but to a genuine love of kids... as long as they are someone else's.*
