This position is mostly a mornings, maybe afternoons and possibly weekends. The primary need is for someone who can get the kids to daycare in the mornings so we can get to work. Maybe someone to help with afternoon pickups/after school hours as well as some service on weekends for adult leisurely activities. Our kids are wonderful: highly intelligent, mostly low maintenance, 2 crabby little Cancers. Our girl is 10 and preteen-ish but sweet. Our boy is 2 and definitely toddler-ish but also super sweet!
