Hello, I am a happy Canadian mother with two boys. I live in a gorgeous city called Prince George which is in northern British Columbia. It has great scenery and winter sports and summer hiking and lakes to visit. Our children are 2 and 4 years old and super cute.
I am warm and friendly and I grew up in Hong Kong and my ex husband grew up in Africa although we are Canadian with roots in Scandinavia and Ireland. I lived in Europe for 15 years and speak some Spanish. I welcome new cultures and am happy to host you.
I broke my knee so need a mommy's helper. Our youngest child has Down syndrome and my older one has autism, so we are looking for people in good health so he doesn't get sick and experience with special needs is a bonus. We need: childcare, painting some furniture white/decorating/decluttering, snow shovelling/lawn work, computer help, filing help, organising the house and running household duties. I work as a prosecutor lawyer and my ex husband works in the environment and visits the kids and we are currently separated but on good terms. We love different cultures and meeting new people and teaching them about Canadian culture.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We could help you learn English, experience the friendly Canadian culture. Enjoy activities and go to the museum, swimming, hiking, the outdoors and cultural festivals. We can develop friendships with other Canadians here we know. Maybe even take a weekend trip away. Discussions on philosophy, world travel, culture and spirituality as well.
I would love to welcome a mommy's helper into our family. I would love help looking after our two boys, cooking, cleaning and going to activities. Someone who could drive our car to pick them up or take them to the park. Sometimes I could could shopping or sightseeing all together. I'm looking for care of them weekends (whole days), evening or mornings or after work depending on my schedule. Cleaning would include laundry, vacuuming and cleaning the house. I am vegetarian. Also anyone who can: plan and do a garden, help with computers and photo management, declutter/organise/decorate a house or paint some furniture white. We love fun and laughter. We ask for non smokers please.
