A little bit about us…We are a two mom household -at least one of us works from home. We need a reliable, responsible, punctual, trustworthy, creative, fun-loving nanny who preferably has had experience taking care of two kids w/different developmental needs. We have a 4.5 yr old girl & an 18 mo old boy. Our 4.5 yr old will be going to school in the fall, so we need a nanny who will be able to do occasional or daily pickups from pre-school. Since our daughter will be going to pre-school in the fall, it would be wonderful to have someone who is willing to & familiar w/doing activities that will prepare her for school curriculum & structure. They are both the most delightful kiddos & we love someone that understands the boundary of being a nanny, yet is okay w/a healthy attachment to the children & the family in general. We are not all business, but appreciate the dance between the intimacy of working in one's home & a professional working relationship. We are a fun family & prefer to keep that energy in our home. We appreciate someone who is assertive, not aggressive in any way, but understands how to motivate a 4.5 year old as well as deal w/a very busy 18 mo old, intellectually, physically, developmentally, & emotionally. Doing fun activities thru-out the summer is something that we encourage and appreciate. Taking the kids to the zoo, the park, walks & hikes, teaching them new & fun things about nature, animals, art, cooking, & diversity. We are looking for someone that is available anytime between the hours of 9am to 4pm M-F, & the occasional Saturday as well. We are fully vaccinated & COVID conscious, but not fanatical. We appreciate safety and the importance of keeping our children safe when it comes to COVID & all things. So, when you are out & about w/them, it is imperative to have someone who is conscientious of a sneaky toddler boy & to basically put their safety first at all times. Their well-being is our main priority always. Thanks in advance- we look forward to meeting you!

A little bit about us…Hi, my name is Lux and my husband is Pat. We have Atticus Moon who is 8 months old. He is a happy smiley baby that loves to be active and move around.
I work from home all week where I design dog bedding for a company that provides beds to Walmart, TJMaxx, Tractor Supply etc. I will be around to help throughout the day and breastfeed when needed. My husband may also be around from time to time depending on his work schedule.
We also have 2 french bulldogs that do pretty well with the baby and will need to be let out to go potty during the day.
If you can feed (except for breastfeeding), entertain (take him to parks or other activities outside of the home) & put Atticus to sleep for his naps while you are that is what we are looking for. If you have your own car that you can drive him in that is safe and reliable. We encourage a lot of outdoor time if possible.
We don't believe in cry it out or any sleep training so he would need to be rocked to sleep or put in his swing for naps.
We encourage Montessori principles, but also allow him to watch tv during the day.
We aim to provide a nurturing environment that allows him to be expressive and upset while letting him know that we are here for him, but making sure we hold onto limitations and boundaries that we have set.
We are pride ourselves on communication and are open to any discussion needed. We tend to be on the more hippy dippy side of things and my husband is a huge Grateful Dead fan, while I use to be a raver. Just to give you an idea of who we are.
