Hello! I am looking for some help with my 5-month-old daughter so I can get some work done at home and occasionally go out for a meeting. She's a very sunny girl, but likes to be in mommy's arms and so it is difficult to get anything done. :) The ideal candidate will be bilingual in english and french (although one or the other is fine), warm, patient, funny, and playful.
I also have an older son who is in daycare, but if you are interested in occasional babysitting in the evenings for both kids, that would also be a possibility. It would be nice for mom and dad to sometimes be able to go to a restaurant other than St. Hubert (haha).
We are a friendly Aussie family who have just relocated from Sydney to the Westmount area and are looking for someone who can help support us in organising our family and home during the week—my husband works full-time and I run a boutique design business from home.
We have a total of four children aged 8 years, 6 years, 4 years and 1 year, but don't let that scare you! Our eldest two kids are at school during the week and so the primary care during the day is for our two children, aged 4 years and 1 year.
