Communication, respect and kindness are important to our family and in our parenting. While we are firm with our boundaries we are reasonable with developmental expectations and logical consequences. For example, it's ok to be mad but hitting or kicking out of anger is not ok. My 2. 5-year-old has a wonderful imagination and engages in a lot of imaginary play. Much of it centers around his fascination with the solar system, vehicles and trains. He also loves to sing and dance! We like to do some art/craft or sensory play everyday and spend as much time outdoors as possible. We are welcoming a baby at the end of March, hopefully she loves to sleep! We are mainly looking for support to maintain engagement with our older child when the baby comes. I will almost always be home while you're here. We would love to find someone before the baby comes to ease the transition. Sometimes I will need you to care for the infant while I spend one on one time with my toddler, but likely much of the time will be spent playing with my charming sweet toddler while I care for the infant. Simple meal prep and tidying up while kids are asleep will also be super helpful. Once the baby is on a regular eating schedule I would love to be able to leave the house to get some solo exercise or errand time. Patience, kindness and engagement are key. Someone who will get down on the floor and have fun with my toddler. Because we hope to find someone we can have a long term relationship with, it's important to respect our parenting style for consistency. We have ample parking in our driveway, you will need your own transportation.
