    I know it isn't a "career"

    I Have Babysat For Years....

    I am 25 and still babysit and so have been doing it since I was 15. I don't enjoy it as much now, I prefer my daycare environment but babysitting helps bring in that extra money.

    I have been babysitting

    since I was 12 and one of the most fun games I love to play with the kids involves tickling their cute feet with feathers. Any other babysitters out there ever try that game?

    That moment when the kids calls

    and tell you with their mother and father "We love you and don't know what to do without you so walk outside." And you walk outside to a bunch of cards and money and ice cream :D I feel loved! I guess giving them a break everyday pays off lol
