Letter to the family

Dear families,
Hello, my name is Lindsay and I am looking to work as an au pair after graduation. I am currently a student in Chicago studying English with a concentration in American literature. Because I have been so occupied with my studies, I have not had many opportunities to explore other parts of the world. However, I do come with a lot of experience with children. I have been a babysitter in America for a decade and I really enjoy working with children. I am hoping to find a nice family that will welcome me into their home and in return I promise to take great care of the children. I am also happy to help with any other household work, such as cooking and cleaning or running errands. Thank you for your consideration; I look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely,
Lindsay

Experience

I have been babysitting since I was twelve years old. I started then watching my neighbor's young daughters. These girls were around six and seven years old. More recently, I babysit for the same family every Saturday. This family includes a five year old son and three year old daughter. This is a family that restricts their children's screen time so I spend most of the time actually playing with the children and entertaining them without television or video games. Some of the things we do include going to the park, swimming, drawing with chalk, playing "good guys and bad guys," building pillow forts, and reading before bed. In addition to entertaining the children, I also prepare their dinners, bathe them, put them to sleep, and tidy up the house (usually washing dishes and cleaning up the living room, but I can also help with laundry, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, and any other housework). The youngest child I have every babysat was two months old, thus I can change diapers and feed babies, but I am more comfortable working with toddlers and children.
