The Ideal Sitter for this Job
Someone flexible and adaptable to the changing needs of the kids and sometimes schedules. Someone comfortable with the dog and walking him in the early afternoon around 3 or 4 PM and again at 6 PM, and feeding him. Someone who is super comfortable in the kitchen and very willing to help out with the kids' meals (making a bit extra for mom and dad to eat up when they get home; no gourmet!). These are simple and healthy meals. Someone who is comfortable keeping the families boundaries implemented with the kids. For example, the kids are not allowed to watch 4 hours of tv in the afternoons, so someone who can monitor this and move them onto the next activity. They are really looking for someone who can be fun and engaging while also maintaining the boundaries.
3:30-7/7:30 PM, Monday to Friday, with 1-2 later night per week. They typically know at the very least one in advance, so flexibility is a huge plus! Mom might get stuck at work for 30 minutes later, but it's not as typical. They utilize Cozi and typically have it set up a week before.
