We are expecting our first child in the next few weeks. When I return to work in January, my parents will be watching the child but we want to have a backup sitter for days that they may be out of town, have appointments, etc. Perhaps the occasional evening as well. Our child will be 3 months old in January. We are looking for someone familiar and comfortable with very young children. We have two small dogs who are incredibly affectionate. We would ask you to let them out a few times a day, but otherwise they are self sufficient.
