We may have a big family but the kids are lovable and pretty self sufficient. All of them are energetic but listen very well. We have 2 girls who have asthma so asthma education is a must. The older ones are very big helpers with the younger kiddos. Our ideal caregiver: We need someone who loves kids. Very patient, mature, and reliable. Additional needs include light housekeeping, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my 1-year-old son, 2-year-old son, 4-year-old daughter, 5-year-old daughter, 7-year-old son, 8-year-old son, and 10-year-old daughter.
