Hello, my wife and I have one child who is two years old and one on due in October. The two year old is very active, loves to laugh, learning to use the potty, and use her words. We also have two largish dogs (both very friendly). My wife works swing shifts and I work a more 9-6 monday to friday schedule. Hours would vary week to week but would be 32-40 hours per week and we would never ask you to be here earlier than 7 am and rarely past 7pm. Even though the hours vary week to week you would know your schedule 6 weeks ahead of time. we want somebody who has experience with new borns as well as toddlers.
