Hi there, my son N is 15 months old and we need care for him every Saturday so my wife can work and we can get some time together. N is a super joyful sweet kid who is pretty easy-going and likes to spend as much time as possible outside, rain or shine! He is highly social and active and needs a babysitter who is willing to spend lots of time being outside or doing high-sensory activities with him, or taking him on adventures around town. We really hope to find someone he can bond to and look forward to seeing every week.
We've struggled recently with caregivers canceling at the last minute, so we're really also looking for someone who is really certain about their schedule and can either give us more notice for cancelation or propose other days and times throughout the week that might work for them. We're flexible, but we can't go without a break any more!
We really value validating emotions, being present, being honest, and adventure!
N LOVES being outside and could honestly spend all day out there. He also LOVES music and making lots of noise. He likes to play hide and seek, likes to be chased and tickled, and loves anything crazy and fun.
N needs to be offered food several times throughout the day because he's not a big eater. He also needs to be both distracted and validated when big emotions come up. He's only 15 months so emotions are new and sometimes pretty hard to deal with.
We hope for someone with a lot of energy who can chase N around. And someone who is patient and good at experimenting and problem-solving to find their unique groove with N .
We have two cats, one indoor/outdoor, and one indoor only. They are sweet and easy-going.
