2 spirited kiddos, 8 &10. Ideal sitter will be calm but energetic... Both do well with LOTS of physical activity. We have elderly pets (children can be directed to take them out, and to clean up any mistakes). Both need to be kept BUSY or they get into mischief or argue with each other. Swimming, canoeing, games, hiking, arts & crafts, fishing, putting on shows (dancing, singing, playing instruments, doing magic tricks and gymnastics, Lego building contests, etc.) are our go-tos. Somehow help appreciated, along with simple meal prep to keep their blood sugar levels even for improved behavior while you're watching them. No junk food or sugar. Both parents attending a weekend conference on teaching gifted & special needs students Nov. 17-19; will need caregiver to live at our home mid-Fri thru mid-Sun.
