Family's Introduction to Nanny

Are you a kind, empathetic person looking for a unique nanny position? This may be the position for you!

You would take care of one 12-year-old girl (Lacie) who is a very talented gymnast, gifted student, and incredible artist. Topping that off, she's an overall sweet kid (though we all know tweenagers have their moments...) In addition, we have the cutest little dog who will need love and attention as well!

Our nanny will be responsible for taking care of Lacie when mom is traveling between our temporary Texas home and our permanent home in Charlotte. Dad lives in Charlotte and mom's job is actually in Charlotte as well. But, our family revolves around Lacie's gymnastics, and so Lacie is in Dallas where she is pursuing her gymnastics dream.

Once mom returns to the workplace (no earlier than September based on current guidance due to COVID), she'll travel to Charlotte either Monday or Tuesday morning and return on Thursday afternoons. During that time, our nanny will be responsible for driving Lacie to gymnastics or other places, taking care of the dog, preparing meals, grocery shopping, ensuring homework is complete (she's really good about that on her own), and general companionship. When mom is in town, Lacie wants to spend time with mom and we therefore want a nanny who is comfortable spending time either with friends or on her own. We do try to include our nannies into the family, but with this living arrangement, Lacie really craves her mom-daughter time.

Please be prepared for early mornings, as Lacie wakes up at 5:13AM and leaves for practice at 6:20AM. She goes to bed early (around 8:30PM). During the school year, she's at the gym until 4 or 6PM, so our nanny has a lot of free time during the day. Although there are some household chores (laundry, shopping, light housekeeping), we welcome our nanny to attend school (online or in person) or even do temporary babysitting or some other job during the day. In the summer, her practice will end around noon, so there will be more time for fun together!

We hope that gives you an idea of the job and our family. Our lives revolve around her gymnastics and trying to make sure she is still getting a good education.

Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about the position.

We hope to hear from you soon!


Job Description

We are looking for a nanny/pet-sitter to help with our 12-year-old daughter, Lacie. Lacie and her mom relocated to the Dallas, Texas area about 1 year ago so that Lacie can pursue elite-level gymnastics. Mom and Dad are married, but Dad lives and works in Charlotte, North Carolina and Mom's full-time job is in Charlotte as well.

We are looking for someone to take care of everything approximately 3-4 days a week so that mom can travel back to Charlotte for business. The duties are as follows: - Prepare meals for the family - Drive Lacie to gymnastics/school/elsewhere - Overseeing homework time - General companionship for Lacie - Regular conversational Spanish speaking with Lacie (ideal, but not required) - Grocery shopping - Walking and feeding the dog (small, 16-pound dog) - Laundry - Light Housekeeping

The live-in nanny will have her own bedroom, but will share a bathroom with Lacie until mid-Fall when we move to a different home. In the new home, the nanny will have her own bedroom and bathroom.

Benefits include room and board, ability to travel to gymnastics competitions, opportunity to travel with the family (if there is a good relationship), and negotiable amounts of vacation.

This position requires someone with independence but who is also friendly and compassionate. Applicants must have a valid driver's license. Clean driving history required, and applicants must be over 21 years old unless providing their own car and car insurance.

Start date is flexible based on uncertainty when mom will resume traveling back and forth between Dallas to Charlotte. As of now due to the pandemic, that is not scheduled to happen before September. We would like to have someone lined up who is a great fit before travel resumes.
