My son, myself and our dog Hazel, whose a Datsun spaniel, are a fun and festive family! We have a good social life with good friends and family around us part of the time, and we really enjoy meeting new people.
My son and I like to cook, play, listen to music, work on projects, play games and piano, go for picnics and be outdoors as much as possible. We are a fun loving small family that likes to share our Palestinian and American culture with our guests as part of the WW cultural exchange.
About me: I tend to multitask and be a bit in my head when I'm at work, it may be attributed to living in New York for over a decade and owning a small business for more than 25 years. At other times I am most focused in the mornings, and create schedules for us to follow so you can plan other activities and know your days off. calm present space, It is my preference to have someone who likes to be around curious and energetic children, as my son is that. There is a variety of things we will discuss after our initial contact by email. I like to have video call, follow up calls and emails to make sure this feels right for us both. I have a trial period the first 5 days. I also require references.
Please share more about yourself and if you have siblings, or have had experience being with children through friends or family or for a career. This is a must to have experience with children if you will help with my son.
It's a balance between help and play. I am open to a variety of exchanges. Please share more about yourself and what you like to share that isn't in your profile.
I have a background in activism, human and civil rights, children & women's rights, social justice and the such. Professionally, I am an event planner, entertainment agent. I have a home office for many years now. Mostly I like help with domestic things, cleaning, organizing, cooking (only if you like too), getting rid of clutter, helping with scanning, filing my projects, basic computer and SM (social media apps and posts. I didn't grow up with computers and it's challenging to keep up. None of the computer/admin help is related to my business. Also, I work from home and have a home office in my living room which is pretty big, my desk takes up one of the smaller walls. additionally, we have a DR, meditation room, kitchen, laundry/green outdoor room, two toilets' and one bathroom, two bedrooms, a pretty good sized home with lots of doors and privacy. it's hard to hear me working or doing yoga from the bedrooms. I like and encourage projects and creativity with my son that we can discuss. Workawayers are not responsible for the care of my son like a nanny would be, it's a much more limited scope, if at all as some people may help me with a project mainly and may not help out with my son who is in school and in summer camps during the day. I am home working much of the time yet would like my son to do some fun activities, playing soccer, math, science and make it fun! baking, cooking & art are also other options. I like my son to get a sense of your home country, your daily life, the difference from life in the USA. What customs did you grow up with? What are some of your fondest memories as a child?
I practice yoga about 3 times a week, I mediate usually early mornings, some nights. With my son, we enjoy reading and dancing, listening to music, preparing meals, creating new desserts, watching shows together. Also, we love lively conversations.

Generally, I would welcome help with two things: 1. daily routines, helping with breakfast at times, around the house or educational projects or homework with my son, or going outside and kicking a soccer ball around. 2. Basic computer help from time to time as I didn't grow up with computers and sometimes I find it hard to keep up. Generally, I like to be organized and to create a schedule, going over it together, so that we both have a clear idea of our time that day or week ahead and can plan for sightseeing or other activities.
I have an adorable, kind and fun 10 year old son (who lives with me part-time) who is very sweet and welcoming and we can arrange for some meals to be together but some will be on your own. If you know piano, he is new with it and loves it!!! music in general is great, yet you need to know how to teach an energetic child! Also, soccer and active WW are encouraged!! children these days' don't get enough outdoors exercise.
Individual women are welcome, age range I'm open to a wide range of ages. I just encourage you to email if you are healthy, and high-functioning people that are drug free and in good mental health. Life experience is a plus!! I will ask for references .. schedule will vary yet maximum 5 hours a day, 2 days off. If it seems like a good match, we should schedule a video call to continue the conversation and discuss things further.
This is short term, generally 2- 4 weeks, yet for the right match I would consider 2 months. If you speak another language it's a plus!

I would like to have an idea about your lifestyle (stay up late/come in late, drink alcohol regularly, if your a smoker, have a special diet, have insomnia, etc) Please share a little about your plans while in SF, interests etc. Also, I will ask for your emergency contact information, and ID/passport in addition to references. We want to respect your efforts and time and ours as well. You will have your help schedule and your off time yet there are house rules we will go over to ensure a smooth stay for us all.
