Our sweet boy is very alert and in tune to his surrounds so having a sitter that will keep his mind active is essential. He loves when you read books to him, so being animated in storytelling would be fun! We aren't huge TV people so we don't turn on cartoons for him very often, we usually play music in the background. We have 2 cats that just do their own thing, but being comfortable around cats is helpful because they will come and say hi to anyone new- and want some cuddles. He's a really sweet boy and in general a good baby- just a little teething here and there. All around, we want someone that likes kids and kid activities to help teach our little boy new things as he grows. Our ideal caregiver: Someone willing and able to play and teach our son. Being active is a plus, he likes to see new things- going on walks, playing in the yard, etc. And having patience when he is learning something new and encouraging him along the way. Additional needs include light housekeeping, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker. Looking for a caregiver for my infant son.
