A little bit about us…

My daughter has never had a sitter before. We have been trying to split care between me (Mom) and Gma.
Dad is finishing college and has started his internship, which is currently 4 days a week. I am getting more hours working as well, and won't have time to watch her as often. Gma also helps care for GGma, who has dementia. Our plates are just full up!!
Estimated hours would be 8:30am-4:30pm, on any day Dad is working, which will only be M-F.
There is also a large 1 year old German Shepard and normal size cat. He will need to be taken out to potty 2-3 times a day. We have had him since he was a puppy, Dad trained him. He's a goofy boy who loves kisses and going to the dog park, located in our community.
We usually try to take the kiddo and dog over there and let them play together. It's hilarious to watch, but he is strong! If he sees another dog, he's gonna wanna try to play and tug on the leash hard.
Kiddo is doing really well with potty training, learning to read, using fragmented sentences and some pronouns, knows all her #s, letters, colors, animals, tons of songs!
She loves running around outside, picking up sticks and flowers. She also likes to color, read, look at flash cards, play with her farm animals and dinosaurs. She also loves music and singing, but if you don't sing it just the right way she will get super upset. I don't know if that's normal, but it's something I'll be bringing up during the next doctor visit.
She has a Roku tv in her room, that we have set to kids stuff, so she can watch her favorite shows and music while we get chores done and such.
She's silly, energetic, adorable, and can be very affectionate toward others with more familiarity.
