every minute.

I have a young son myself who has just turned two and is full of energy.

I have come from a retail background and have been in retail for over six years in my

last position. I am a people person and found myself always attracted to entertaining

children while their mum and dad shopped which lead myself wanting a career

change to be around children full time.
