We are both early 30's, full-time working professionals. We live in rural Alaska (Bethel), and are seeking someone to join our family and care for our 4 month old son (Sawyer) while we are at work. During most of the year the husband works regular hours (Mon-Friday 8-5), but summers (May-August) he is gone in the field conducting research. The wife works semi-regular hours year round (Mon-Friday; 8-5:30). We have a well trained small dog, and letting him out to potty a couple of times a day would be required.
We live in a 2 story 3 bed/2 bath home. You will have the master bedroom with attached bath. The bedroom is fully furnished with a double bed, nightstand, tv with blueray player, and closet. The living room has cable tv, a decent movie collection, and wifi.
Husband hunts and fishes, and we live a partially subsistence lifestyle. Most protein we eat is wild game (duck, goose, moose, caribou, deer, bear, salmon, other fish). Game processing occurs in the garage, so you will see (or learn?) animals being processed. We are outdoorsy, with boats, ATV's, snow machines, kayaks, go camping, etc.
Sawyer is 4 months old, and is a happy baby. He recently started rolling over, loves learning and playing, and has become talkative. He is breastfed/ bottle fed pumped milk. We use cloth diapers.
We are educated, clean, organized and respectful. We do not smoke, do drugs, and only drink socially.
