A little bit about us…

Hi there,

We are a family of 5. Nick, Kim and Baby Jordan.

Jordan is a little adventurer who thrives in "Chaos". We have taken him on quite a few airplane trips and destinations over the last few months and he does great when he's on the move. He's not eating solids quite yet but we are getting him there. Usually he just likes making a sloppy mess of it all. He is mostly an energetic happy little boy who likes to giggle and interact with all around him. Very rarely have I seen him have a shy moment.


As for the other 2 they are our fur babies. Whisper is a grey and white tuxedo cat who thinks he is a dog. And Bourbon is a mixed mutt. He is the sweetest boy once you earn his trust, but can be standoffish before that happens. I can share pictures of them upon request.

We are looking for someone with positive energy and good attitude on life, who is dependable and obviously does great with children and animals.

Ideally we are looking for someone who is willing and able to do:
-Mon-Fri 8-5:30pm; or possibly half days on Tuesdays and Thursday.
-willing to nanny from our house.
-Light housework, like dishes or taking out trash.
-Taking bourbon to alleviate himself once during the day.


Expectations are straight forward. Outside of any terms we both agree to. Just communicate when things come up ( and they usually do) and all is good.
