2 kids - age 11 and 13 boys, will be in school most of the day during the week.
Will need someone to stay overnight, make them lunch and dinner, help with homework if needed. Drop them off at school and pick them up from school.
They're boys and older so will not be much trouble at all.

My husband, grandmother, son and I live together. I am looking for someone to care for my 10 month old so . We love the outdoors so even in the snow I’d like someone to be able to take him on walks or do a short playtime outside. I work from home so I still want to be apart of his care so if I’m rocking him to sleep or feeding him I would ask you do some house work like dishes, vacuuming etc.

Hairstylist, just pulled my son out of KLA daycare for safety reasons. COVID nervous and am hoping for a safer environment. My husband must travel for work and that’s as far as our risk goes. Will be willing to create a new flexible schedule. Must work Saturdays at the salon.
We would love that our child learns cognitive skills as well as some sort of social interaction on a safe way. Genuine love and care. I’m a 1st time mama and would love for someone who will grow to love my son and care for him as if it were her own.
