  • Description


    Hi there!! We are looking for some help around the house. We are a neat, tidy and clean family of three with no pets. We are a couple with a baby boy born Aug 16, 2017. Mom has allergies to perfumes and other chemicals (fabric softeners) so we are an unscented household. Dad goes to work from about 8:30 am until about 6 or 7pm and Mom is at home on maternity leave but has a sore back so we need some help. We eat a very health diet and have dietary restrictions such as no gluten and very limited dairy. We are blessed that our baby is healthy and a good natured baby. He is gentle and rarely cries (only for a real reason). At present, he is breast fed and just starting to eat solid food.
