I'm giving this a shot! I've never had a baby sitter other than my mother for my son! He is currently 16 months old. He is feisty and crazy as I am sure that many toddlers are! However I do want the person who is interested in this job to be flexible and very patient with him. My son was born premature 3 whole months early and is a bit behind on things but not on a lot of things. Overall I just want someone that I can trust and rely on and that is VERY VERY patient with us.
