  • Description


    I'm a single mom with 2 babys. 2 year old and 7 year old.
    Im interested to look workawayers cos I have heard good experience.
    Preparing meals for the family.
    Help around the house.

    I'm home most of the times cos I'm not in work right now, so you wont be alone with the kids and we do it together. Maybe you would go alone for a walk or a playground with the kids only if you like.
    We would decide the time together, I'm thinking maybe 3-5 hours a day,but I'm just looking for a litle help around the house and to play with the kids and some helping in cooking if you like to cook.

    My parents live in a farm very close by, and there on the farm is alot of fun things to do.
