Getting a babysitting job

So my mothers has been pressuring me to get a job. The thing is, i don’t want one, like at all. Every job i look at doesn’t sound too interesting. Flipping burgers, or stocking shelves? BORING! I know i really don’t have many options but id like something a little better than that. So i signed up for Care.com. Care.com is a website/App that allows you to advertise yourself as either a babysitter/nanny,companion caregiver,errand runner, etc. THAT IS PERFECT FOR ME! Since i want to work with people when i am older (preferably kids), i just believe this was the right choice for me. I absolutely love children, they really make me so happy. It would be so great if i got maybe two families that were a recurring babysitting gig, like every friday or saturday night. That would be so great. Honestly it isnt about the money for me, i really am looking for just having fun with little kids, and hopefully give me great life experiences i will remember forever. I am eager to stat babysitting and i am really hoping the lady who contacted me follows through with what she told me, she is a very nice lady who has two little girls, one 3 and the other 7 months. That sounds like a handful to some but i would really enjoy watching her children. Since i never really have anything to do on the weekends or during the summer, it doesnt really effect my “schedule” (like i have one). This will get me out of the house, because according to my parents i am always home… i see that as a good thing, like they can see that im not some rebellious kid i might think i am, but really i sit at home and watch Greys Anatomy…ooooooooh so rebellious… i know. I think they are tired of seeing me here all the time 24/7, when i am able to go basically anywhere i want (within reason) since i can drive and have a car to drive. Eh i only have like four real friends, and they like do stuff on the weekends, unlike me. You’d think i would be hanging out with my best friend before she leaves…but im not. I am an awful friend really.
