We are wondering if anyone would be interested in a nanny share with our family! We have a wonderful nanny who takes care of our youngest (12 mos old) all day and our oldest (3-years-old) after school. An ideal share for us would be a family with a child (1-2 years old), 3-5 half days or 2-3 full days, willing to drop off at our house, non-smokers, and comfortable around a dog. However, we would be open to considering other arrangements as well. Please let us know if you are interested. Thanks!
