I live with my husband, two toddlers, 7 pound dog, and my parents. My parents help with childcare, especially when I'm taking myself or the kids to an appointment, but they have their own lives/go on vacation, etc. I need a backup for those days they aren't available.
The majority of the time I'll just need a few hours here and there, most likely taking care of one kid (occasionally with both). No dog duties necessary (we try to keep her separate from the baby as she's afraid of those stomping feet and grabby hands!).
My 3-year-old is mildy autistic and has a speech delay, neither of which really affects his care as he's really happy, kind, and outgoing. Once in awhile he may not want to listen or is unable to transition well so patience works best with him in those moments.
The 1. 5-year-old is into everything and loves playing (or bugging) his brother. Both kids love being active, just playing with toys, and being outside.
