Hi there :)
I need support for some 3 months in order to write my masters thesis. I am a solo mom and I have a 5 months old baby and a 7 year old boy. I need some support with mainly childcare and a bit of keeping things in order.
The Baby has a reflux and needs to be hold upright most of the time, otherwise the food comes out. So I need someone to hold the baby and to be kind to her. The 7 year old could need some attention too. He likes to wrestle, to play with Lego, clay, boardgames, building stuff out of cardboard. He would love to learn woodcarving. My aim and challenge is to keep him away from too much screen time, lol. He grew up unschooling and speaks german, english and indonesian language. Now learning polish from my mom.
We expect you to stick to the covid regulations as my brother is at risk due to a lung issue.. For example now there is lockdown in Germany and meet ups shall be limited.
I am staying for a couple of months in my moms house. Here live my mom and her partner who works from homeoffice. Then there is my brother who is a taxi driver but not working due to covid. We have a sausgae dog and 2 kitten.
We share a kitchen.
Some pro and cons of the stay with us:
It is a little village next to a river and surrounded by vineyards and forest. You can hike or go around by bike. Or do Hoolahoop or go Inline skating or ice bathing in the river or lake.
I can help you with applying for german scholarships, uni or jobs.
The house is neglected and should be renovated asap. That is a project for after my graduation.
There aren`t meals included as all of us have extreme food habits that you would probably not enjoy. You would get money for food and to help yourself.
The help in exchange for room is needed for 5 hours per day, flexible schedule though preferably around 10-3 o clock five times per week.
You get a room for yourself. I will upload a pic asap. Just we need to clean it first as it serves as a storeroom.
It is queerfriendly and I am a fan of Marshall Rosenberg. Crunchy helicopter mum and hippie at heart.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
Hey I have some experience with applying for scholarships for studying in Germany. I could help you with that or with learning German. My mom here is polish, though.
Hold the baby while in my room. Go with baby for a walk so she falls asleep. Let baby sleep in your arms. Talk to her. Listen to the 7 year old boy. If you like some boardgames, wrestling or crafting, he would be into that as well.
This host offers a language exchange
I can share german.
We have a tiny and a big room available. Both are half full as storage room. We need to take the things to a other room so it is available to you. We don't smoke.
Time off: We are in the countryside, it is covid and Germany is in lockdown. You can go hiking, on a trip by bike or ice bathing.
I go inline skating, for a walk, i do online yoga and hoola hoop.
