    Hi,
    I am 5 years old, gorgeous, funny and full of life! I live with my Mum in a two story house with a big pool - close to the waterfront at Deception Bay. This is an animal loving, non smoking household located in the Moreton Bay Region just north of Brisbane.
    We live a short bus ride, within 1 hour, from Australia Zoo, Bribie Island, the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland, The Glass House Mountains and the Redcliffe Peninsula - which gives you access to the beautiful Tangaluma on Moreton Island and boat trips for Whale watching. Central Brisbane is a short train ride away; We are a 15 minute bus ride from one of North Brisbane's train stations - giving you access to Brisbane City and the Gold Coast.
    We are a family of my Mum, my Grandmother and I, our 2 dogs and our Cat Blitzen. My Grandmother will be needing a little household and yard help while she is looking after my Mummy and I. My Mummy is having minor back surgery and will be incapacitated for a week or so.
    You will have the top level of the house to yourself - with your own bathroom, toilet and verandah.
    I, Master 5 yrs old, have some eating difficulties and I do need your patience with helping me eat at meal times - I have some food intolerances, oral aversion and can be a slow eater who is very picky.
    I am your No. 1 helper and I love to help with everything and anything from meal preparation to, vacuuming, washing the car, cleaning windows and hanging out the washing. I love to be outdoors and I like swimming in our pool, reading books, going to the park, library and the ocean waterfront. My favourite at the moment is playing board games! Our dogs and I like to go for walks down at the waterfront too - where I can ride my bike, go fishing or climb on the rocks. There are a couple of cafes which have great coffee and chips too!

    Hi,
    I am needing help with daily household duties, babysitting and with mowing the house lawn once every 2 weeks - The 5 hours work per day will be divided amongst these.
    Babysitting my 5yr old Son will involve taking him walking or bike riding to the local park, library or waterfront for a picnic, assisting him with eating, playing board games with him and swimming in our backyard pool together. The household duties will include hanging and folding washing, helping prepare meals, unpacking the dishwasher, walking the dog, cleaning the 2 bathrooms and toilets (weekly), vacuuming and moping the floors (weekly). I also need someone who is able to mow the house yard lawn with a push button start- push mower and also to wash the family car.
    I will be at home incapacitated for about a week or so -recovering from minor back surgery. My Mother will be staying here for a few weeks looking after myself and my Son during this time. She will be needing help with the house and a break from my Son - which is where the role of a workaway will come in. My Son is a people lover and will want to be your new best friend and help you with everything. lol! In saying this, he does understand that your upstairs accommodation is out of bounds and your free time will not be interrupted.
