When my industry was not doing well, I found a job like that through care.com and worked as a Nanny for over a 1.5 yrs eventually cutting my house back as my regular job picked back up. I too really enjoyed it.

That is where I found my job too!  The family asked me how long do you plan to stay? I told them"I will be here for you as long as you need me". Now I can say that because it is the truth.  They knew that when I say something i am not just feeding them a line,I am honest 100% of the time and I told them that.

Good luck.. I still help them out when needed, all the children are in school now and their needs changed. Perfect timing however for both of us. If they pay well and treat you as a valued member of their team you will enjoy going to work everyday! And if its a vocation you enjoy you will always be able to find employment. I negotiated couple weeks paid vacation, paid holidays ect. If you didnt do that this time remember to try that next time. Working for the school district as one of my employers did.. it worked out great vacation wise. Because I had all the holidays off.
