    We need help with babysitting our 5 boys, mostly it is looking after the two youngest who are 3 and 6 years old. That includes taking them to the kindergarten in the morning and getting them home after kindergarten. Preparing some snack for them and playing with them. We also need someone who would like to make dinner some days of the week. Housekeeping is also required and making our boys responsible for their share of housekeeping.
