Hi there! My husband I had a baby boy on January 5, 2018. I am returning to work full time on May 3, 2018 and would love to do a nanny share with another family in our area. Our nanny is engaging, loving, and responsible. We much prefer to have our son spend the day with one or two other kids and the nanny, rather than at daycare. I am looking to create a nourishing, attentive environment for our child (and yours!) and would love to find another family who is striving for the same goal!
