FT Live In or Live Out Nanny/Caregiver Midlothian (76065)
Sandwiches anyone? We’re a multigenerational family with Grammie in her 70s, a 2- year-old toddler, and mom and dad smack in the middle of this three-generation sandwich we call our family. Because of the broad age ranges present in our home, we are needing a Full- Time Live Out OR Live-In Nanny/Caregiver to help with the needs of both our youngest and oldest family members.
To be clear, our toddler is the top priority as Grammie is mostly self-sufficient. She may need the occasional help with snagging a top button or a gentle reminder to take her medication, but mostly you would be a friendly presence (who’s also available for help when needed) in her daily life. Take her on your outings to the store and she’ll be your best friend.
Our toddler is active and makes a mean ‘VROOOM, VROOM’ sound for all his cars,
trucks, and trains. Anything with wheels he can make go, “fast, faster, fastest” is his jam. If it says ‘Tonka’ on the side, you can bet he has it or wants it. Mapping out imaginary roads and roadblocks, incorporating a bit of educational play, and handling his meals, snacks, and nap are most of the day’s responsibilities. It’s important to note, our little guy has some serious food allergies, so you must be super vigilant about what he eats. As you’re able, we’d ask that you
keep the family laundry going throughout the week and tend to some light housekeeping tasks such as wiping down sticky surfaces and picking up play areas by day’s end.
Dad travels quite regularly and mom is a teacher, so both are mostly gone during the day. As both put in full and demanding days, your help taking care of basic meal prep for dinner will earn you stars in your crown and a superhero cape for the day (plus loads of appreciation from all the hungry campers!).
Mostly, we are looking for someone called to serve and able to form a trusting
relationship with a respected elder and an inquisitive toddler. We need you to be ‘a doer,’ a go- getter, and someone who takes initiative rather than waiting to be told every specific. We are a fun and friendly family, we love our mealtimes together, and squeeze in a family game night whenever possible. We’d love the live-in option if possible as that could meet our occasional needs for evening and/or weekend care.
