We have two inside short hair cats and 2 big short haired dogs which are kid friendly, but they can still be clumsy so you still have to watch them around the baby. If care is done in our home letting the dogs in and out to the backyard would be needed, as well as tidying up after yourself & whatever you and the kids do during the day. My 7-year-old N may need to be picked up/dropped off at school depending on my schedule, & loves art. D is 7mo old, she crawls everywhere, is eating solid food, & always very busy. The girls are little besties. We are not a religious family but we are openly spiritual. Our ideal caregiver: Someone who is warm, fun and genuinely enjoys being around and interacting with kids but also one who is firm on boundaries and is comfortable with handing out minor disciplines (time out, taking away a privilege for bad behavior etc). Also someone who loves animals and can let our 2 big dogs out to pee during the day ( if care is done in our home) and tidy up after themselves. Someone great with problem solving, critical thinking, communication and flexibility ( can go with the flow). Additional needs include pick up / drop off, having a reliable car and being comfortable with pets. Looking for a caregiver for my infant daughter and 7-year-old daughter. My schedule may vary.
