Our 8-year-old loves Pokemon, Harry Potter, superheroes (Marvel), and Star Wars. He enjoys reading, playing video games and board games.
Our 4-year-old loves playing with toys, his big brother, and rough housing. Both boys love music and dancing around. They also love swimming in our pool and playing with our Irish Setter Griffey.
Our 4-year-old is potty training so he needs frequent trips to the bathroom and help getting on and off the toilet. He also is working on speaking clearer but can be hard to understand and gets frustrated if you don't know what he's talking about.
Our 8-year-old needs help with ideas for activities. He's not the kid to go and do his own thing without encouragement or suggestions. Even then, he'd rather be where you are and interacting with people.
Patience and understanding of a couple boys who love playing with each other. Someone who knows when the play is getting too rough and can redirect. We would love for our caregiver to be comfortable with large dogs, as we do have an Irish Setter and would prefer if he was allowed to be with you and the boys while babysitting. He can be crated during meals or activities where he would be in the way.
We have a large driveway with plenty of parking space.
We have a dog, Griffey is a 2-year-old Irish Setter. He is a sweetheart who has been through extensive dog training. He is beeper trained, meaning he responds to a beep noise if he is getting into something he shouldn't or going somewhere we don't want him to go. He also has a Halo collar that keeps him from getting into trouble outside. He's very friendly and just wants to be where the boys are. He has never shown any aggression. He is extremely food motivated so keeping people food away from him is important.
