Nanny for baby Paul 14 months (Mississauga Area)

Family in Mississauga

Hello, Peter and I are young and successful professionals with a very busy schedule that requires an outside help with our little treasure baby Paul. He is not the original baby :) before him we acquired a resque dog (Jack Russell Beagle mix) Ben who is now 8 and a few years later we got another rescue puppy Ally (husky, sheltie, boxer mix) who is now 3 yrs. They both adore baby Paul and like to pick up crumbs after his feedings or still his baby treats if he is distracted. Those little rascals! They do make an adorable trio though. In the end however our main concern is to find the best nanny we can for our baby Paul. We are looking for someone to come to our house in Mississauga around 9-10am and take care of Paul till 6-7 until we get home. We ran three businesses besides being a full time employee at one of the leading Canadian Companies. We both are really busy with work and before Paul goes to nursery or Montessori we need a loving nurturing and positive individual to be a role model to our son. He wakes up around 9am then we have breakfast (stuff from scratch always a plus); If the weather is nice a walk is a must as long as we are warm and dry. There are quite a bit of parks in our area so its a great exercise for the adult as well ? Ben and Ally go to dog park once a day so they dont need to be taken care off (unless we forgot to give them breakfast then your help would be greatly appreciated). They sleep when baby sleeps because he tires them out. IF Ben misbehaves you can always put him in another room for a timeout using a doggy treat. Both dogs are barkers so if you know that someone is going to come to the front door please let the dogs out. If its too late still try to get them on the backyard before opening the front door (you can always use treats) then you can let the guest/us in the front door. The only back draw to this is that Ben and Ally bark and that might wake up Paul if he is napping. However please make sure that Ben doesnt sneak out the front door and escape. He has a bad reputation so keep him away from front door as much as possible. Of course the dogs are not that terrible and actually keep a great company to you through out the day. You will get to know how sweet and cuddly they are once they warm up to the visitor. They both are very nice and affectionate otherwise there would be no point in having them! After the morning walk its great to give Paul a snack or lunch depending on how hungry he is. Offer him yogurt and bananas (fruit caps). By that time he will start to rub his eyes, which is a sign that he is sleepy so you need a bottle of milk (organic glass bottle) 4-6 ounces of warmed milk and you can put him to sleep with the bottle. He knows what to do. You can turn on his musical box with background noise of nature sounds to make it easier to fall asleep and then leave the room. You always have a baby monitor to keep an eye on him Paul sleeps for 2-3 hours with closed curtains. During this time its best to clean up and make food. Ideally I would appreciate if someone would empty the dishwasher or remove dry clothes from the dryer. Perhaps even a light cooking. Mainly of course the attention is on Paul so if he needs laundry done or needs a lunch/dinner meal I would expect that you would be able to take care of it. I prefer food from scratch so I freeze a lot of his meals. It would be amazing if you cou make something nutritious fresh for him. I will provide cash or buy ingredients my self as long as you let me know. I think the biggest part that most people neglect is communication. Ideally I hope to develop a line of communication with my nanny and be accessible and vice versa if anyone need anything. Even if its just to say hello and ask how your day is going. There is nothing better than to have an opportunity to voice your concern or bring up a point that matters to one or another party. Im open to cell/text/gmail/whatsup whatever application works better for you. Finally when Paul wakes up around 5pm please make sure to feed him if he is hungry and give him plenty of time to play. He loves to discover stuff. Please be careful with stairs and cupboards and fireplace. He will get into everything but hopefully he will be so busy playing games with you that he will forget about all these other things. We get home around 6-7 pm and then its cuddles for Paul and I usually cook dinner. If youre able to pick up some groceries time to time or even get a dish started (nothing complicated: we either bake or stem/fry dinners so its very bland and easy) that would be a giant bonus because for me its really hard to slave in the kitchen after a tough day at the office and the problem with both of our jobs is that sometimes we have busy days and were stuck at work till 6-7pm arriving around 8:30pm (vary rare but does happen at least once a quarter). We are looking for someone who wouldnt mind the unpredictable schedule and be ok to work 9-10am till 6-7pm. We also come home early sometimes so of course we would offer you a time off which will all even out in the end. We would prefer to pay on a weekly or monthly basis by cash or money transfer. Please apply if youre passionate about music or art and being a nanny is your hobby for the moment but in the future you have big dreams. Of course we are looking for a guardian and carrier first and foremost but its very important for us to surround our son with motivated people. We are all very sport oriented people so it would be great to have someone who can relate to such style of living. In addition our family is pretty musical so dont be surprised if you hear a lot of music at our house. Its sort of a family tradition ? of course if the baby is sleeping its a different story hehehe If youre an active and passionate person we hope that you will have a variety of games/puzzles you can offer Paul to help him evolve his basic skills. It would be great if you had some child education and could help us keep baby Paul on the development track. We really encourage creativity as long as it leaves a positive mark on Paul. Please consider us if you believe in raising children with positive reinforcement rather than punishment; as well as finding alternative ways how to develop a young kids mind. Having said all that of course sometimes a discipline is the only way to go and Paul needs to know right from wrong. Typically if he is doing something that he is not supposed to be doing we say No No No and wait for him to stop. If he doesnt stop try again but with more reinforcement. If that doesnt work either than you have to carry him away or take away the object of his interest. He cries but he needs to know that there are rules and boundaries so occasionally you have to be very stern with him. It mostly relates to all safety issues so we dont want him touching hot iron or falling off the stairs etc Last but not least it would be a great bonus if you drove just because sometimes we need to take Paul to his grandparents (both 15-20 min drive) or maybe a doctors appointment so in those cases that would be a great but we can always find alternative solutions if thats not available. Thank you for taking the time to read my giant letter and also thank you to all applicants in advance. We will be contacting the best individuals and setting up appointments. We are looking to fill this position by Jan 19 or early Feb at the latest. Thank you all for consideration. Anna and Peter
