A little bit about us…Our older son, Daniel, turned 5 in August, and his brother, David, has been 2 since the end of June. Carolyn is working to complete her PhD at Rice and Dan is a self-employed Commercial Real Estate Broker. We're looking for someone to help fill-in some gaps for us to make sure the boys are having fun and learning as much as possible while we try to meet all of our personal and professional commitments. 1st priority for us is someone that the boys will grow mentally and emotionally from spending time with, followed closely by the consistency that we and they can depend on. Both boys are at a Montessori school about 15 minutes from our home M-F 9a-2:30p. So, it would be important for us to find someone that would be willing and able to provide a safe ride home for them on most days. Sometimes they like to stop on the way home to play at a park, or just come straight home to play until both of us are home and ready to start dinner/bath/bedtime. The nature of both of our work/school situations means that we need a lot of help, but we also have a lot of flexibility to offer, so we can work around your personal schedule and be very accepting when you need extra days off.
Cleaning and cooking are not requirements, but it would be nice to work with someone that can help the boys pick-out snacks and who will help them rinse the dishes used and put them in the rack or the washer.
