Live-In Nanny Needed For 2 Children In Alexandria (LIVE IN)
Must love dogs!
My name is Liz and my husband passed away in June of 2015, it was a shock to both me and the kids. He had a heart attack, and we are working on completing our puzzle and finding our new normal. My children Logan & Lilly are the loves of my life, but I am a full time working momma and I cannot do this on my own!
I work 5 days a week and try to work one day week from home. I work for a company in Old Town Alexandria, Travel Leaders Group. so not too far from home. I also travel for work so will need someone that is comfortable with the kids and being on their own them as well as vice versa.
A typical day for you would look something like this:
Start at 8:00,
6:45 – Logan off to the bus stop – I will cover this when not traveling.
8:00 – start, Pack Lily’s lunch if I have not
8:15-8:45 am – help get Lily ready for school
8:45 -9:00am – take Lily to school
9:00 – 2:30 – OPEN/Free time!
2:30ish – Logan home from school
3:45 -4:00pm – pick Lily up at school
4:00 -7:00pm - Dinner prep, dinner, dinner clean up, run dishwasher, homework, kids prepare backpacks for school, take the kids to sport practices, etc.
There will be times, here and there, that I might go out on a Friday or Saturday night and ask that you watch the kids or need help on a Saturday morning with getting the kids to their respective games. And there are nights that I have evening commitments for work.
I hope this gave you an idea of what my family is like and we will do our very best to make you feel like part of the family!
