About the Children
baby girl, 11 weeks- She has reflux and is colicky (on it's way out!). She has to be in her carrier post meals and is having trouble getting to sleep. She is pretty happy baby otherwise and really cute. boy, 2- He is so good and has so much energy. He is a goofball, but takes a bit of time to warm up to people as he is so sensitive. He is a really really picky eater so mom prepares everything. He also has some challenges getting to sleep. They cuddle him to sleep and he isn't currently sleep trained so they are currently tackling this challenge. His current sitter gets him milk and reads him a story to get him to sleep and soothe him. They are working on these challenges and are hoping to find someone who is sensitive to this and open to working with them on this, too! He has some slight motor delays; jumping and walking on his toes. He is not yet potty trained, so he is still in diapers. The goal is to potty train him this summer.
They will be responsible for the kids' full care during the day including feeding them, preparing light meals, changing diapers for both, taking them to activities outside and doing activities in doors, putting them down for naps, etc.
through summer and ideally longer
