Despite the name, babysitting is one of the most enjoyable, active jobs I’ve ever had.  I would take my charges to the swimming pool or the park or the ice skating rink, and if the child was a baby, I could read during naptime.

I’ve actually considered nannying, but it feels socially unacceptable considering my education and work experience.  Also a little weird, given that I would have liked to have spent a portion of my life staying home with a child of my own.
