About the Children
Boy (4 1/2) - Extremely energetic! He is very curious and very active. He likes the park, books, puzzles, and animals. If he can have some outside time, this is great for him, as he has so much energy. He's about to go to kindergarten. He's young for his grade. He's really tall and sometimes he'll tell people he's 5 1/2. He wants to be older. He's conscientious. The family likes to utilize diversion and lots of options if a conflict comes up. Boy (8 months)- He is very mellow, and a happy and smiley and jolly baby. He is working on crawling. He's constantly making eye contact with people. He doesn't like leaving people, and he's still working on getting good at the bedtime routine.
Responsibilities include picking up the kids from school, keeping kids active and engaged, and prepping dinner. An interest in prepping healthy and fun meals is an important part of the responsibility. Finally, the family's preference is to find someone who lives in or near Prospect Heights! By the way, there's a big backyard with a trampoline!
