Sitter in Cincinnati

Hi families! My name is Merritt Sue Becker and all I want in life now is to babysit. It sounds a bit crazy for a 56 year old professional (I have a JD and will copy my CV here....). But I moved here recently from Mozambique to take care of my elderly Mom, and I live with my folks in Mt. Adams. They don't need me full-time so I have flexibility and I love kids, especially babies, more than anything in the world and I could use a bit of cash. So, here is my CV copied, just so you can know me a bit, and please consider me for baby sitting. My contacts are also on the CV.
