We need a nanny for our 1 child in Santa Cruz. And we're looking now! Meal Preparation: Meals for baby. Errands / groceries: As needed basis (read - when I forget an essential for baby at the store!!). Comfortable With Pets: We have a young Australian shepherd - he'll be 1-year-old by then! We are also doing some daycare for him, so interaction here would be fairly minimal. Pick-up or Drop-off: Limited transport expected, but you never know! Has Own Car: Car preferred. Schedule Details: This may change, but we are planning on 3 days/week right now! The # of days won't change, but the specific days may. About the child(ren): We are expecting our first baby in March! We would like care to start in early August/September, so he will be about 5. 5 months old at that time. We both work full time in tech, so we are very busy 9-5. Jason currently works from home and I work in downtown Santa Cruz - although Jason is at home, he is in meetings constantly and cannot dedicate the time and attention needed to baby while also trying to work. My mom will be helping out two days/week with the baby, but we are looking for somebody for the remaining 3 days to help while we're both working. While we haven't met our new addition yet, we will both be very involved parents and just want F to be with somebody who loves him like we do and encourages him to learn, grow, and explore just as we would if we were with him all day! We'd love for somebody who believes in talking to him, singing to him, reading to him... a level beyond just making sure he's watched over. It's hard for us to accept that we will both go back to work and not be able to do it all on our own, so we're really just looking for that person who becomes like family.
