Letter to the family

My name is Erika . I want to become an au pair because I have a few months of down time between graduating university and applying for an internship. My major was in dietetics, so my hope is to eventually become a Registered Dietitian. I have numerous years in childcare and started babysitting when I was in high school. When I was not doing that, I was volunteering at the preschool my mom worked at to help out with the kids in the classroom. I have been nannying my little cousins for most of their lives. Those two little girls are my whole heart! Also, another one of my cousins just had a newborn baby, so I have been gaining newborn experience which has been really heartwarming for me.

Experience

My experience is that I have been nannying for my cousins two kids for about 4 years. The ages of the girls are now 7 and 5 so I have been watching them for about once a week for the majority of their lives. It has been inspiring to me to watch them grow, change, adapt and learn. I have also grown in my care-taking abilities. I have learned how to deal with numerous tantrums and fights and I have had to become a quick thinker. Lately, I have ben gaining newborn experience as the cousin whom I live with just had a baby! I know how to change diapers, potty train, cook for children, play and I have a background in acting so I make story-time a real treat!
I also have experience with watching older children. When I was in high school I baby sat a child around the age of 10 until she turned 13!
The reason for au pairing this summer is because of the few interim months I have between my graduation and my internship. Also, my boyfriend and I met traveling this summer and he lives in England, my hope is to spend days off with him and just overall be closer to him.
