A little bit about us…

Hello, I’m looking for someone who can help me out with childcare for my two children. I have a 3 year old daughter and a son who will be 2 in April. My daughter is fully potty trained and we’re trying to begin working on potty training my son. They are easy kids to take care of as long as you feed them. 😊 I recently received a job offer for An Otolaryngology Clinic. My work schedule will be Monday-Friday 7:45am-5/5:30pm. But my husbands schedule is different due to COVID restrictions, he only physically goes into work Mondays & Tuesday’s. I would only need child care for Monday and Tuesday for the time being. We are willing to provide meals if needed.
I am willing to have them be watched at your home. If you seem like you could be the right fit, please let me know. Really in need for childcare ASAP.
Thanks in advanced

A little bit about us…

Just to give you a little bit of information about me, I am a 32 year old single mom to my beautiful daughter Charli that turned 6 months old last month. I work from home full time Monday-Friday (occasionally I have in office meetings) and I have been mostly taking care of Charli myself with occasional help from my mom. Now that she is getting a little older it’s getting a tad difficult to work and watch her full time, while making sure she is staying active, stimulated and on schedule. I am looking for a loving and patient nanny/babysitter that can help me with my daughter during the day a few times a week. The duties/responsibilities would be providing care to my daughter, feeding, going on walks, changing her diaper, keeping her on schedule, etc. If you think you would be a good fit for what I am looking for please let me know, I would love to schedule a time to meet.
