Mom Seeking Family To Help During The Day

Avg response < 5 hrs
(4)
I am an at-home mom of two young boys who are both in school full-time. While they're in school I am looking to support a family that needs some help with caring for their children and/or managing their home (i. e. meals, housekeeping, yard work, pet care, errands, and laundry). I most recently served for three years as president of a local MOMS Club. I like organizing creative activities at home and taking kids outside to explore the natural world. I also have experience caring for special needs children: one of my sons (age 6) has autism and ADHD and the other (age 4) is un-diagnosed as of yet, but has a speech delay and many food allergies. I can help a family new to the special needs world to navigate therapy options and IEP meetings, find support and respite, and take a child to therapy appointments. I'd love to nurture a mom who is burned out and needs support in the form of not just a friend, but someone to help her and her family thrive.

Stacia was the best babysitter we've ever had. She cared for my daughter starting at around 8 months old. It can be difficult to leave your baby with someone new for the first time but with Stacia I never worried for a second. She was so capable, dependable and loving. My daughter is on the shy side but she warmed up to Stacia right away. I will never forget how after I shared my frustration with lack of sleep, Stacia researched a sleep training method and emailed me about it. We tried it and it worked! Sanity was restored and I've since shared that email with so many friends...years later people are still thanking me but all the credit goes to Stacia! She is so great connecting with kids and just a lovely person all around. I highly recommend her.
