A little bit about us…

We're a growing family in the Outer Sunset with an 11-year-old boy who's with us half the time and a baby on the way.

We're getting an early start interviewing for a nanny to help us out once our baby's born around Jan. 10.

I'll have a 20-week leave from work, but this is my first child and my partner travels a lot for work, so we could use help from someone who can work with a first-time mom as well as providing an occasional ride for an 11-year-old boy to get to things like football practice if his dad's out of town or otherwise unavailable.

We're thinking a part-time nanny would suffice, but we might not know until the baby's here what days / times work best.

It would be great to start meeting people sooner, rather than later, though, just to see if they can ease into the role / acquaint themselves with our family by helping out with our 11-year-old's transportation needs.
