  • What else ...

    What else ...

    with our two babies being so close we can imagine a helping hand around the house would be a great thing. also our house is bigger than we need and some company for everyone is a good thing and someone extra would be such a great thing to fill our house. I remember my own time travelling and know the people along the way is as great as the journey itself so while we cannot travell now we thought it would be awesome to have someone in. we dont expect that much from the work load and we dont want a baby sitter or a nanny its really just for company and a needed helping hand. we are also very flexible to help you and want an arrangement that lets you make the most of your stay.
