Who is this Monica, you ask?

 

I understand how hard it is to leave your child with someone that you have really don't know anything about. So, I put this site together, so you can get a feel for me and my day care. 

 

I was raised in a home day care. My mother had run one for 5 years before I was even born I pretty much knew no different than that of being around lots of kids all the time. I shared everything I had, always, with everyone. I felt like I grew up with 10 siblings, 10 families. 

They all shaped who I am today and why I do what I do.

 

As the children grew up and moved on, new families would begin and new relationships would form. In my teenage years, almost all the families used me for weekend night babysitting. I loved it! I remember thinking "I'm getting paid to play silly!"

 

I bought my home when I was 18, and got my license to do full-time child care in my home. I am coming up on 20 years pretty soon! How crazy is that? A few years ago my very first baby, Trevor came to see me and that was a defining moment. He was 12 years old.  Now I'm that old lady who says "Oh my god! I remember when you were this small!" and then I pinch a cheek and talk about how I used to wipe his butt when he was younger! It was great.

 

 

I really do love what I do and I love my kids even more. I think I'm the only one I know who looks forward to my Mondays. I'll tell you what though, I have the best group of parents ever.

 

To me they are family. They entrust me to care, comfort, feed, and teach the most important person in their lives. And for that, I will be forever grateful.
