A little bit about us…

3 very active kiddos (6 year old, 4 year old, 3 year old)
looking for some every weekend care (for the next few years) and days/afternoons during the summer.

We are pretty laid back as a couple, and our kids love to rumpus and be creative.

If you are crossing the bridge to us, I will certainly reimburse you for the toll.

We have a dog and a cat as well. I wouldn't expect any pet care other than letting the dog out for a quick potty break if he needs it.

I don't foresee any necessity to drive, but if that comes up I can provide car seats, gas, and such.

For meal prep, I'll try to have things prepared for them, but you may have to slice the occasional apple or assemble a snack.

We are in Gig Harbor, about 7 minutes from the Tacoma/Gig Harbor bridge.

For weekends - we'd love to have 3-6 hours to have mom and dad time .. we can do anytime on the weekends and are flexible. If you wanted to come from 8-1 on Saturday.. then come Saturday night the next weekend and Sunday afternoon the next.. we'll take it!

For the summer I have some limited summer school, so help would be welcome in the afternoons. I also would love to cover some shifts at work (for example, all day on Monday, June 27th I'd love to cover a shift if I have childcare)

A little bit about us…

We just had our first child in September and I am trying to line up a nanny for when my maternity leave is up toward the end of January. I anticipate needing full time help while I am working and my husband is at sea at his job, but those hours will reduce when he is home (usually 6 months a year staggered). I can explain more in detail as we move through the process!
