Evening Babysitting for 3-year-old (Arlington)

Hi! We live in Arlington and are looking for a babysitter for our 3-year-old. He is a sweet, fun, easygoing kid.

Looking for occasional weekday evenings and occasional weekend afternoon/evenings. Responsibilities during evening hours may include helping him with his dinner, bath, and bedtime. This is a perfect opportunity for a college student, as he goes to sleep early and you can get paid to do your homework until we return.  Compensation $20-25/hour depending on experience. Our house is easiest to get to by car, although you could get there by bus if needed.
