A little bit about us…

I am a proud mother of a 2 yr old girl and 7 year old boy! The nanny for me is happy, easy going, and flexible. The job is primarily for my 2 yr old for 2 days of the week while her dad and I go to work. Our 7 year old walks to school and is there from 8:30 - 3:30 so he will only need to be seen in and out of the door.

My 2 yr old is easy going, happy, and funny. She likes cartoons and playing dress-up.
