We have two boys a 3-year-old and a 2-year-old. We have them some set schedules, they wake up, get changed, eat breakfast, go play for 3 hrs, get changed, take a 3 hr nap, wake up, get changed, eat, play for 2hrs, change and go to sleep. We only need help for 8 hrs, and all we need is to make sure they are safe in their own rooms, in clean diapers, and are fed. The average day consists of the boys being self content for 5hrs. So during this time we may need assistance starting a load of laundry or keeping an ear out for our newborn. We run 3 online businesses and are self employed. We just need someone to make sure that the boys are taken care of while we work. My wife is 22 and I am 24. We keep the house pretty tidy for the most part, spray the yard and around the house for insects and keep it very presentable.
