We are a energetic, fun filled family of 5. We have three children, who are 11, 9, and 4. Our two oldest are boys, and are extremely independent and rarely need help or guidance. Our spunky 4-year-old daughter is full of energy, fun and attitude. We are new to Minnesota, my husband is a retired USMC veteran, and we moved here for his work. He works for the Federal Administration, and I work as a Substance Abuse Counselor. Both of our schedules are "swing" shifts, so we often find ourselves needing child care for our daughter some nights, some days, some mornings, some evenings, some times being just a few hours or sometimes being 12 hours. We both work very hard, and the time we do get to spend together and with our children we are often exploring this amazing state! We want to welcome a new member to our family!. Our ideal caregiver: We are looking for someone who is patient, loving, energetic, reliable and caring but can still provide a structured environment and instill discipline when needed.. Additional needs include light housekeeping, having a reliable car and being comfortable with pets. Looking for a caregiver for my 4-year-old daughter. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
