Help a single mom with 2 adorable baby girls! Join our little female tribe in the beautiful city of Oaxaca! Looking for serious, dedicated workawayers who love kids (and don't have a hard time getting up in the morning). You will be expected to baby-sit in the mornings while I work from home. Please note that taking care of small children is HARD WORK. I am looking for someone who wants to be ACTIVE with the kids- take them for walks, organize activities. During the working hours, I expect you to be fully present and keep off your cellphone as much as possible. A minimum of 3 weeks is required.
I work as a translator and have many connections in Oaxaca. I am interested in natural, holistic medicine, plants and herbs, spirituality, but also culture and mezcal... Our house is a 15 min bus ride from the city center. We live in a green, mountainy area with a big garden. Our house is a small, simple environment. You will have your own space but must be able to deal with the fact that the kids' presence is everywhere!

Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house

I worked as a guide and have many connections in Oaxaca. I am interested in natural, holistic medicine, plants and herbs, spirituality, but also culture and mezcal... There are loads of those in Oaxaca and that's why I decided to live here. I am a vegetarian foodie, I love to cook and to eat!
Mostly, I need someone who can help me with the girls. This means playing with my 2.5-year-old daughter and her 8 months old baby sister while I work (from home), taking them to the market, to the park, painting, singing, dancing, reading stories... Any additional help with cooking, shopping and cleaning up would be greatly appreciated!

Private room in my house, a 15 min bus drive from the center. It's a quiet, residential neighborhood, has a few shops and is very close to nature. If you like to go out at night, a cab drive home will cost you about 3 USD.
I cook at least one hot (vegetarian) meal per day and there are always plenty of snacks in the fridge and around the house!! I will ALWAYS offer you a freshly ground and brewed coffee in the morning as that is my personal little luxury pleasure. I would greatly appreciate your help and inspiration in cooking / preparing healthy vegetarian meals as I sometimes run out of inspiration...
Please note that you will be living in a house with young children - their internal alarm clock goes off at 7 a.m. every day!!! Also, since we are vegetarian, we would prefer you not to bring any meat into the house. Other than that it's a friendly, relaxed environment! You can smoke in the garden, and enjoy a beer while talking about anything you like, I am a very open-minded person.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
There is a desk and strong wifi in the house.
I have a huge garden and live in a quiet neighborhood!! I even have a fireplace.
As long as you clean up after it and it's not a reptile.
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
