I need someone that will do light house keeping, take out the dog if I need it, make sure all of the babies things are organized and clean, take care of the baby, play with her. I need someone that is comfortable with pets because I have one, even though she is the sweetest and won’t even bother you, I want you to feel good in my home and with my baby. I am not strict about anything. Just I want my baby in a safe, comfortable, happy environment and that is all I care about.

We have a sweet 11 month baby boy and are looking for someone to care for him 2-3 days a week; currently unsure of the specific days. We’re hoping to enroll in a weekly music class and possibly one other that we’d like our nanny to take him to.

Both my husband and I work from home right now but he’ll soon be going into the office a few days. It’s definitely a plus is you love dogs! We have a medium sized labradoodle.
