We would prefer a babysitter who is comfortable with pets and who is CPR certified.
We typically like to get some mommy and daddy time 1-2 times a month, and we usually know at least a couple of weeks in advance. We have an 8m boy and 6y girl. Typically we leave around their bedtime and will be home around 2:30a, sometimes earlier or later. Really we just need someone trustworthy to be here while we are away, though you'll mostly just be watching TV while the kids sleep.
They don't really let you specify 11:30PM, but know that we are looking for care later than 11:30 p.m. We'd like to get to meet you in advance and let the children get comfortable with you. The specific date in this post is for a paid interview, we'd like to start the following week on 1/19.
