Family's Introduction to Au Pair
My name is Jenna, my husband is Alex, and our kids are Jude, Sawyer and Daphne. We also have 2 large dogs (friendly of course), so you have to be okay with a couple furry housemates!
I am a founder and CEO of an events industry tech startup in San Francisco. My husband is a CHP officer (policeman). I am 30 years old, he is 33. We have been married for 8.5 years, live in a small suburban town called Oakley, about an hour outside of San Francisco. We have a a great public transportation train (BART) 15 minutes from our home that takes you right into the city so you don't have to drive. We have a large, brand new 3800 sq ft home in a quiet neighborhood. Our nanny quarters are very nice, a private junior suite with a private full bathroom away from the rest of the house, though still attached.
Jude will be 6 years old in August, starting first grade. He is very much interested in cars, motorcycles, airplanes (anything with a motor). He is a very particular and organized little kid. He gets bothered by his wild sisters sometimes, but he really loves to be the ring leader in make-believe games with them. He is very mechanical and prefers hands-on learning, so school is a challenge for him. He's extremely bright but very much dislikes schoolwork.
Sawyer will be 5 in September and is starting Kindergarten. She is our creative little artist. She loves to sing, dance, draw, paint, anything expressive. She is very much looking forward to school and has loved every second of preschool. She loves babies and really loves to mother our youngest child. Sawyer is very expressive, feels EVERY emotion to it's fullest (nice way of saying everything makes her cry, she's a sensitive little thing), but that has made her very kind-hearted and aware of others' feelings.
Daphne is our high energy wild child. She turned 3 (going on 13) in January and starts preschool soon. She is extremely loving, playful, funny... a bit of an instigator with her older siblings. She is our cuddly little firecracker. She is starting to come into her personality more and more, but she is fearless and will try anything and eat anything.
Duties include taking kids to school a few times a week, packing their lunches, doing their laundry, light housekeeping. We have a bi-weekly house-cleaner so no need on deep-cleaning.
Our kids are young and very close in age, which means they are best friends half the time, and worst enemies the other half. Patience is a requirement, and being strict but kind and understanding of the frustrations that come with their ages.
We are a very busy family. My schedule is packed and sometimes spontaneous. My husband works late and often. Flexibility during the week is appreciated. But we are flexible too and are always willing to accommodate the best we can when you have something you want/need to do :) We are a young couple, and totally get that you have a life too. It's most important to us that our kids feel loved, safe and have fun.
We need someone high-energy who loves young kids. They love to play games, go to the park, ride their bikes, swim at our gym's pool. Your day is most productive and easy (less fighting between the kids) if they are kept busy with activities throughout the day. Boredom is really what causes fights amongst them honestly.
We are really needing someone who is responsible, dedicated, wants to stay long term preferably, is an experienced and safe driver. We have a minivan you would drive when you have the kids, and a manual (stick-shift) Honda Fit you can use on your own time. (If you don't know how to drive stick, we can teach you!)
We have an ifor you to use if you do not have a phone. We pay your bill, all utilities are included, as well as food (you are welcome to anything and everything we have, and are encouraged to add what you would like to the grocery list). Gym Membership is included as well.
Really, we are happy to accommodate your needs if you are helpful here too. Alex and I are very hard workers, extremely easy-going and understanding. Communication is key to us all co-living and working well together.
I am very much looking forward to meeting you and finding the perfect person to join our family :)
