A little bit about us…

We are a family of 6 in Tonawanda, NY. Our kids names are
-Stella (7) is an artistic brainiac and is going through a fashionista phase. She’s very high strung and needs to be challenged regularly. She’s been like that from birth.
-Abraham or Abe (4) is our little angel. Once he warms up to you, he’s your best buddy and he will assist you with whatever you’re doing. He loves puzzles. We think he will grow up to be an engineer.
-Asher (3) is a tank. He’s bigger and stronger than Abe even though he’s younger. He’s very sincere and extroverted. We put him in a preschool M,W,F.
-Rosie (1) is a little sweetie who loves to cuddle and play peekaboo.

We’ve never had a nanny before so this is new territory for us. I (David) run a business and it takes a lot out of me. Chelsea also runs a business part time, home schools the kids, and both of us are involved in our church. We also do some work with the refugees here in Buffalo.
We need someone who can zig where Chelsea zags. If Chelsea is helping with the homeschooling or working on her business, then our nanny can be cleaning the house, making lunch, playing with Rosie, etc.
We are starting with part time because this is so new to us and we don’t know what to expect. However, we can realistically afford full time. I just feel it would be irresponsible to commit to that at this point.
No pets
I’m torn on the hours. I want someone to be there for Chelsea during the day but cleaning the house while my children are awake is like plowing when it’s snowing. Ideally, I’d like someone to be able to clean at night so we can start fresh every day (and actually get a reasonable amount of sleep). We will talk about the hours and see what works best.
