My wife and I are looking for a terrific Nanny to help us out from 8:30am to 5pm, MWF. We have a lovable, curious and (occasionally!) energetic six-month-old daughter. We care very deeply about music and learning and new experiences. We are looking for a nanny who shares those passions and can help us fill our daughter's days with all the above. We want more than just someone to watch her for 8 hours - we want someone who can engage her and get on her level, but also recognize when she's more in the mood to do her own thing. If you can play an instrument that's a big plus! We've got a piano and guitar at home - our daughter loves to bop along (and sometimes "sing") when someone's playing a live instrument with her. We'd also like our daughter's new nanny to be open to going on outdoor adventures with her. We have a stroller and a Baby Bjorn and our neighborhood is great for walking around. My wife will be at home for the duration of this job, writing a book in our detached garage. So you would need to work seamlessly with her, being flexible but available to take over with the baby so that my wife can work. She typically comes in once or twice during the day to feed the baby - during that time you can eat your lunch and when there's time we'd love if you could help out with some baby-related light cleaning, food prep, etc. Aside from that, this is a pretty standard assignment - feeding (both bottles and solids), diapering, playing, helping our daughter nap, etc. She's a pretty easy kid to love. If this sounds like it's up your alley, contact me and we can set up an interview!
