Well I think I've found someone to watch Kieran. This lady watches my best friend's son and I've known her as an acquaintance for quite some time. She's certified and a former nanny (kids grew up and the parents ended up not needing her) so she watches kids out of her home. She currently watches one little girl (toddler) all day and my friend's son (also a toddler) for two hours in the late afternoon. She doesn't plan on watching anymore kids. She's charging $160 a week and seems like a good fit. Does lots of activities with the kids too. Takes them apple picking, to the park, to the zoo etc.
I know it's up to me to decide but would you be pretty comfortable with this situation? She has a really sweet disposition and my friend says her son absolutely adores her.
