  • Description


    we are a couple with a small son. (born June 2017) and we have pets (3 cats and 2 dogs). I work some days in home office. Cristina works during the day at home. she is my right hand 😀💪. she does housekeeping and also takes care him in the morning. Him goes at day care in the afternoon, but when him comes back I need a person to help me with him while we are busy. I want him to learn English while you take care of him and play with him. If you have Experience with toddlers is a plus.

    If you don't enjoy dogs and cats, don't want to hold and pet them , then you will not be happy with us, And we won't be happy with you either. We are quiet people :) 🐈🐈🐈🐶🐕🐾

    The household has to be quiet. If you want to party & make noise, great, but not inside our home. We are very quiet people and I want to stress that - we don't talk loudly, try to always be soft and gentle, not make noise.

    We Don't smoke, don't party, I emphasize this - We do not talk loudly, We are private, quiet people , pretty happy I'd say, maybe kinda boring.

    I want to emphasize that our area is a safe, family neighborhood, not near the tourist areas. Still, major transportation via bus and Trasmilenio is minutes away.

    We have a laundry room, & kitchen, must be kept clean ! We provide meal for cooking & sundries products for you.

    * It is important that you organize the toys you use with him again, he is a small child and makes a mess, he already knows how to pick up his toys.

    * If you are at home in the morning and you have time, help Cristina with Alan's care while she does the cleaning. Alan is a funny kid.

    * Your help is essential Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 4:00 pm until our son falls asleep. On Thursday afternoon he has virtual class so he will be at home all day.
