Have been sharing current nanny with my wife's sister's son, but they just moved to another city. We're looking for a family to share a nanny with our active 16-month old - ideally a child of similar age. We're laid back, but value exposing the kids to lots of different stuff - other kids, the outdoors, new activities, music, books, germs, etc. Looking to start ASAP. We live at 14th and Racine - south part of University Village and just north of Pilsen.
