  • Description


    My name is Madeleine. I live in the northern part of Sweden, in a small village called Pajala. Pajala is located above the Arctic circle.
    I live with my three kids. A son,10 years old. And twins (boy and girl), 8 years old.
    The oldest kid has a father and lives with his father every other week. The twins live with me full time and don’t have another parent.
    We also have a cat. 🐈

    I work as a preschool teacher, love having kids around me. ☺️

    We live in a nice house with lovely neighbors.

  • Help


    Being a single mom I have a lot on my hands. I’d love to get some help picking up the kids earlier from school.
    Some household chores and sometimes babysit the other kids so I can do something with one child, like go swimming with only one of them and have some quality time. ☺️
    The twin boy has autism (grade 1, light autism) and adhd so some experience is wanted.
