Hi, I am a single mom ( 43 yr old), I live with my daughter Mila who was born on October 22nd, 2015 ( 3 years old).
I am looking for someone ( 1 PERSON, preferably a woman, NO COUPLE, NO PETS,) who can help me with tasks such as : cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping as well as keep an eye on the baby once in a while ( if I need a couple of hours break).
Of course experience with baby-children would be a plus!
I would prefer longer periods of time ( 1 month or more) for you and my child to get to know one another and to really experience the family life but I am also opened to 2 weeks stay.
I am easy going, I love to laugh, good sense of humor, I try to meditate and be zen because life as a single mother is quite hectic! My passions are music, photography, visual arts, travel.
Schedule would be as follow: more or less 3-5 hours a day of work with 2 days off per week. I am flexible so we can organize a schedule that fits both of us.
As for expenses, if we decide to go on a short trip to discover some of Quebec's beautiful nature, and you would like to join, we would split the price of the transportation ( car-gas).
All food was included before but due to recent unfortunate experiences with some Workaways I have had to modify that.
Now, breakfast is included as well as milk, yogurt, and all dry goods ( pasta, rice, bread, cookies, etc.) but we would split the price of fruits and veggies.
PS.My daughter goes to bed at around 8.30pm and wakes up at around 6am! I would need someone quiet as my daughter goes to bed quite early.
You would not have your own private room. I have organized an area in the living room (which is a double room) for you.
The last photo is the photo of your living area.
I apologize in advance if I don't get a chance to answer your message. I get many messages a week, and being a single mother, my days are super busy and I sometimes don't get a chance to get back to you or I simply forget at the end of the day when my baby is finally asleep!

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I live in a very nice area of Montreal ( Mile-end- plateau), many cafés, bars, restaurants,shops, galleries, walking distance to the biggest park in Montreal ( Mont-Royal) and the bus in front of the house takes you downtown in 10 minutes ( quartier des spectacles- Metro place des arts). I speak many languages ( French, English, Italian, Spanish, German) so you can practice any of those if you wish. I am a very creative person, I have worked in art therapy so if you like to make art, I would gladly take part of it. I have art supplies. I have also traveled a lot ( working as a flight attendant) and have lived in different countries so we can exchange on travels and culture!
I am looking for someone ( preferable woman) to help me with every day tasks as well as keep an eye on the baby once in a while ( if I need a couple of hours break).
The living room is a double room so basically you would have your room in the living room. I am very quiet and go to bed early.
We can talk about it when you are here.
