We are a family of 4 living outside downtown Nashville. Our children were born April 2013 and Nov 2014. We also have several cats and a dog. My husband works and I am mostly a stay at home mom (former massage therapist) and currently working at a mother's day out program 28 hours a week. I love to cook! I have done some traveling, my husband, not so much but we can both help with English and grammar. Nashville is a beautiful city to explore and better enjoyed by those who stay here because it's Nashville. I am interested in more of a long term guest, at least a month at a time.
If you like to shop, please do not bring lots of clothing from home, you will buy things while you're here and your suitcase will be extra heavy and hard to close. It's happened every time. Bring big, relatively empty suitcases. We will supply you with bath towels, laundry facility, and we have lots of extra toiletries from past workawayers.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Having 2 small children closer in age presents it's problems at times. I really need an extra set of hands so I can accomplish household chores. Either for someone to entertain my children so I can work or for someone to do the housework or cooking for me and I'll care for kids.
We need the most help with childcare, pet care, and housekeeping.
Things to be expected:
- keeping your room and bathroom clean
- usually it's short term babysitting while I run errands, go to the gym, or go to appointments. Occasionally Drew and I like to have a date night or would like to be able to sleep in one morning.
- take the dog out to potty if no one is home
- let the dog roam if you're home and we're gone
- possibly feeding animals
We understand people have different schedules but we can't have workawayers sleeping half the day. Our kids wake between 7-8:30 and still take naps. The bedroom is also the play room and they need access.
We observe the Sabbath so we do not require any work Fri night-Sat night.
We have a 2 bedroom, 2½ bath. In the master bedroom we have a twin over full bed with a twin trundle. Our kids sleep on the full bed so there are 2 twins available in that room with a private bath. We can provide 2 meals a day but no special diets.
Things to do during your off time:
Local parks too numerous to mention them all, but I will highlight Centennial Park
Professional sports teams
Grand ole Opry
There is also public transit within walking distance from our home.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
