About this host
We are pretty laid back. I like to take the kids on adventures every once in a while, but for the most part, we like to explore and pretend and create here at home. We love having friends over and throwing "parties" out of things we find around the house. I believe in minimal screen time and schedule when they are so young, and just let them discover and imagine at their own pace. Of course, movies are awarded when we've done our jobs. We love kids and playing, so come on over!
Three kids, ages 4, 2, and 5 mos. 2 bedroom duplex with a large living room and backyard, and a 20 gal fish tank to ooh and ah over.
The west door is the main entrance. It is a duplex.

Happy to help in whatever you need!
We are right by the mall, (and soon to be Trader Joe's, eek!) so Mom can get some errands done while we play! We have two parks within walking distance. Our backyard is completely enclosed.
I plan on staying home 100% unless the parent needs
Crystal was wonderful! Her kids are about the same age as mine, and they played together the whole time. My boys had an amazing time and can't wait to go back!
Crystal was amazing! She and her kids welcomed us immediately and made my kids feel completely comfortable—even my 3-year-old with separation anxiety was willing to say goodbye within minutes. My 5-year-old didn’t even bother saying goodbye! I highly recommend Crystal and would definitely use her again!
Crystal made us feel welcome in their home. She contacted me before the arrival to make sure everything was set. My son had a blast playing with her kids, and my baby was happy, fed and recently changed (sometimes you don't get all 3!) I was a little nervous as it was a good chunk of the afternoon with a new sitter but Crystal was wonderful.
Crystal is so cheerful, easygoing, and accommodating. After the first visit (and since several more) my children begged to go back to play again. She’s also really good at communicating.
