    Help with the kids. Also a little help on weekends, occasionally, as Mary is self-employed and works weekends sometimes. Babysit every Friday 5-9pm. You will have plenty of free time to have fun and explore our beautiful country. You will have 2 days off a week. We will need you to stay with us for minimum 4 weeks, longer if possible. You will need to be flexible.
