    Description

    Hello, we are a Family of 5: Iris (mother), Rino (father), Olai (son 6 years), Milo (son, 4 years) and Juno daughter, 2 years). We live in Ottestad close to the city Hamar in Norway. We live in a terraced house in a nice family friendly neighboorhood.

    We eat mostly organic Paleo/wapf, we practice attachment parenting and our two oldest children go to the Waldorf kindergarden/School.

    We are looking for English speaking single person to help us with projects in and around the house. You will also help with some basic household tasks and help us with the kids.

    Iris and I speak fluent English and altough its our 'secret' language, we want our kids to learn it as well. They both speak Dutch and Norwegian fluently, since I'm Dutch and Iris is half Dutch, half Norwegian.

    We do drink on occasions, but we don't smoke or use drugs, and will not want guests who are intoxicated or smoke. We also have a perfume free house.

    We eat as much as possible organic and local and we do eat a lot of meat/fish, so if you are stricly vegan/vegetarian, this may not be the best place for you. If you are flexible, then I think it will be okay. :)
