A little bit about us…

We are expecting our first in August! We own a business so we will need consistent care starting in late October/early November for this baby and hopefully our next and would love to meet someone who wants to be a part of our family for a long time to come! The job would consist of infant care for 1, playtime and developmental activities, some light laundry for baby, and picking up baby items from around the house. We also have 1 easygoing pup who loves to snuggle and will need to be let out a few times a day. Hours will probably be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 7-5, but may increase to add Monday 1:30-5 and Friday 7-2 as I am able to return fully to my office. Hours are somewhat flexible based on nanny availability. No weekends or late nights needed. We’d love to meet you and look forward to working together!

I have two rambunctious boys, one being three years old and one is 6 months old. The schedule is kind of odd, in a three week rotating schedule. With opportunities for more hours. May possibly include pick up and drop off of the oldest to a preschool (completely undecided about sending him yet). So ideally your own reliable transportation
