    Practice your Italian (or your English) with us, and help up get through the day - peacefully!
    we are : Mom, dad and 2 boys (11 and 7 yo).

    I work in Milan as a journalist. My husband works 2 minutes from the house selling construction materials. My mother in law lives downstairs from me. My sister in law lives next door she has a dog and cat that live in our common yard. I am actually allergic to them so they do not come in my house, but they are around If you like pets.

    I have 2 lovely and lively boys... they are a lot of work. :)

    I live to try all new things and I love Asian food.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Italy is beautiful : ).
    We live in a town 20 minutes from the center of Milan by public transportation.
    There are many museums and cultural events in the city.
    If you are a runner - my husband goes running (15K every Sunday morning) in places nearby.
    I usually drive to a farm on Sunday mornings and sit at the cafe while the kids play in the outdoors.
    You would be welcome to join if you wish.

  • Help


    What I need most is: help with the kids. Help putting things away in the house, help cooking., help picking up kids from school/taking them to sports.

    In the morning
    The kids and I (mom) are rushing to get out the door - could you help me get the kids get ready: making sure they brush their teeth, getting dressed, having breakfast with them/us. I will be with you doing the same - but it would be great to have help.
    After we leave, tidy up. put the dishes in the dishwasher, tidy up the breakfsat table and anything that has been left out.
    In the afternoon:

    When the kids come home from school (at 17:00) to when the go to bed ( ideally 20:30). I need a hand with everything kid related.
    Taking the kids to and from sports (close to our house).
    Sometimes making dinner for the kids or for the family and eating with us if you want or with them if I am not around.

    Helping put things back in their place.
    Sometimes sitting with them and making sure they do their homework.

    I am looking for someone intelligent, fun and proactive that enjoys children and has lots of PATIENCE.
    I would love it if you like to cook. (I cook but not as well/efficiently as I would like.)
    I would love it if you are organized and want to help me .. I would like to be more tidy and organized, but on my own I don’t seem to have enough time.

    We are non smokers and prefer a non smoker.
