About this nanny job
My son is on the autism spectrum and has ADHD. He’s about as rambunctious as kids come with a wicked sense of humor and always needs to be on the go. Extremely quick and very intelligent as well as wildly creative. It’s never a dull moment in his presence and his vivaciousness/absolute lust for life is infectious. He is a tiny human that constantly reminds everyone around him that life is to be enjoyed if only because he’s always finding new ways to entertain and amuse himself (much to the dismay of the rest of us) 🤣
His three favorite things in the world are french fries, dinosaurs, and a tie between being outside and his tablet. He’s definitely known for soliciting games of tag by just running away, and he is faaaaast. Chaos personified but only when he hasn’t had enough time to exert all of his energy. He likes a good story, and can also sometimes sit still to be read to aloud but audiobooks are his definitely his jam.
I’m mostly just looking for some help during the day and in the evenings sometimes when I’m working (I work at home) as I am a single mom and my rad little human likes to sing the songs of his people when I’m on the phone. Once in a blue moon, an evening out for mom-time.
Ideally, I’d like his caregiver to be beyond patient as well as open to being surprised by just how independent and brave he is. He’s definitely a child that needs space to be himself with just the tiniest bit of redirection sometimes.
He loves make-believe games and can be distracted in two seconds with “I Spy”. “Rock and roll music” is his favorite which could be 80’s hair bands, heavy metal, pretty much anything with gnarly guitar riffs and he’s set.
No allergies but he’s particular about what he wants to eat and pretty much grazes all day in lieu of finishing meals. My fridge is completely equipped with all his impulsively-snacking needs.
