3 boys... the oldest will likely be enrolled in pre-k, so it'd likely be the 2. 5-year-old and the 7-month-old in February.

My wife works overnights as a nurse. Which means an non consistent schedule.. Additional needs include being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my infant son, 2-year-old son, and 4-year-old son. Flexible start date. My schedule may vary.
