In 2000 I moved from West Virginia to Apex with my husband to continue my career as a special education teacher. I taught in the Wake County school system for five years. In 2005 I had my first child and started a new chapter in my life as a stay at home mother. Three years later my husband and I welcomed our second child. Although I absolutely loved staying home with my children I missed teaching. This inspired me to begin tutoring children in my home. As my business started growing I needed a reliable babysitter to watch my children. I wanted someone who would play with them, read with them, do homework and take them to their activities. Like many other mothers, I have always been very particular about who takes care of my children. I have been very fortunate to find great sitters but, then they would leave for college or move out of the area. When this happened I wished there was a service that would find a reliable, trustworthy babysitter for me.
