A little bit about us…

Hi, looking for a share that's flexible for our interesting family set up. I have shared custody of our two cuties, so only need childcare half the time AND it is on an alternating schedule (MTF on week, then WTh the next week).

I have a one year old that is chillness itself (although a total climbing savant) and a three-almost-four year old that is all energy and heart. Looking for a local nanny and family that would welcome all that energy into their home, and willing to host on days I have the kids.

Responsibilities would include just general childcare, maybe some light tidying up after the kids (but not cleaning), lunch, snacks, park, etc. MAYBE some dinner prep. Once my oldest starts preschool, we can discuss picking him up from there.

Would prefer someone with a car, but not necessary.

No pets in the house, but my mom lives upstairs with her dog who we borrow from time to time.
