    I need some help from someone who helps me at home, can be more a woman than a man. We have a child of 22 months and we must advance in our work to open bed and breakfast. Some days our baby goes to his nanny. We must paint, sand, arrange the house. The days when the baby is there we have to watch over him while working. Maybe you can help us in our daily life, sometimes play with the child, sometimes paint, sometimes clean or garden. There are always things to do.
