Boys love nature- especially climbing trees and catching critters. They are into Parkour and flipping on the trampoline. They both have a hard time focusing on homework and do better in math than in reading. They are fraternal twins, they usually get along but not always.
My husband and I live in Maplewood, N.J., with two sons, 4 and 6 years old. I'm a freelance journalist now but may be going back to work two or three days a week. The boys are your regular, active boys. They love playing outside more than anything but also love building Legos, reading, coloring, using their imaginations to come up with games, etc. I'm freelance from home right now but may be going back to work three days a week; one day would be from home and two days would be in New York City. So the two days I'm in the city the hours would be about 8:30 to 6; the day I'm home would be 9 to 5 or 10 to 6. Once the school year starts, the hours would switch to picking up one son at 1pm, another at 3:15pm and watching them until 6pm.
We are a loving, active family of four. Our daughters, Ivy and Hazel, are fun and affectionate little girls with a lot of energy and are extremely social. We enjoy going to the beach, hiking, biking, travel and pretty much anything outdoors. We are into a healthy and active lifestyle for ourselves and our children.
We moved to Maplewood this summer from Pennington, NJ (before that we were in New Orleans, a city we all still miss). George commutes 3-4 days a week to work outside of Princeton, and Jenny commutes into NYC daily. We need someone to pick up our children from school and stay with them until one of us returns, usually by 5:15/30. May involve some travel to kids' activities (although they are not overly scheduled at all). We have a very friendly German Shepherd and two guinea pigs.
We are looking for a driving, after school sitter who doesn't mind also walking our small (<10 pounds), non-shedding dog. Our 13-year old daughter plays field hockey and takes hip-hop lessons and likes to cook/bake and draw. Our dog is a lazy bones except when barking at his reflection or at the blender. My husband works in the city and I work from home when I'm not traveling. Our schedules change due to business trips/dinners so we are looking for a sitter who has the flexibility to work later hours from time to time. The days/hours needed are not set in stone, as our daughter's after school schedule hasn't been finalized yet.
