We have a 5-year-old girl who will attend school in September, and a 2-month-old girl who will go to a home daycare at the same time in Dedham. Keeping the house clean is a challenge given my wife and I both work in the city from 9-5 and commute. We also occasionally have trouble leaving work to get to school/daycare on time to pick up the girls. We are looking for a housekeeper to clean the whole house, do laundry, and maybe even prep meals for when we get home at 6. On certain days, we may ask for the care giver to pick up one of our girls from school instead of prepping a meal. Towards that end, the first month in August we'd like the caregiver to spend time with us and the older daughter to gain her trust. Lastly, we have an old great dane, so someone who is truly comfortable around dogs in addition to loving kids/babies is required.
