We need a babysitter for our daughter, 5 1/2 years old. She is very shy and sensitive at first and needs someone who will be patient and not overwhelm her. Once she warms up to someone she loves to play, laugh, and be silly, and she's very well behaved. She especially likes dancing, imaginary play with her stuffed animals, and for adults to do voices and plays. Need someone who will give her undivided attention and be good about listening to feelings and talking things out. Only gentle boundary-setting please, no punishments.
We also have a large dog who is extremely friendly but can be overwhelming at times. She can be put in another room for the duration of babysitting visits if you prefer.
We are looking for occasional babysitting gigs - afternoons and/or evenings at 4-5 hours at a time.
