About the Children
boy, 5- Sensitive, Smart, and Funny. Likes TV/Movies, cars, trains, reading, and stickers. No allergies, but picky! Sensory issues and likes to know what is coming next. He is very sweet and kind, but does suffer from a bit of anxiety. He has just started therapy. boy, 3- ACTIVE/High Energy! Likes running, jumping, climbing, Sesame Street (Elmo), and books. He is entering those terrible twos, so he tends to get emotional from time to time. He is in his "no" stage, so someone who can be firm is paramount! Both boys are really sweet and kind. They are going through a lot of transitions and adjusting as best they can. There may be an adjustment period.
The SmartSitter will split up after school responsibilities with mom and sometimes dad (they are recently divorced, but get along well and live in the same building!). Pick the 5-year-old from school most likely, take him to activities and playdates, and take him home. You'll work alongside the mom and help her with the two boys in the afternoons. Help with dinner prep and tidying up after meals and play time. On occasion, you may help with a local errand or the boys' laundry. If staying late, you may help with the bedtime routine as well! They may very occasionally assist with the morning routine alongside mom or dad who lives in the same building! Getting them ready, fed, and off to school. Sometimes they will take one and sometimes they will take both.
