.... WHAT?!

1) Baby Strolling (California)
HI. We are looking for help on Saturdays Daytime and Fridays evening. Hours are approximately 10:30am- 2:00pm on Saturday, Fridays 8pm-9pm. I need a person to stroll my adorable baby son (with me walking) to Montana Branch Library in Santa Monica on Saturdays at about 10:30am and stroll him back home at about 2pm. Hours are flexible. No need to commit to every week. Distance is 1 1/2 miles each way on Montana Ave. in santa monica 90402.
I will pay you the whole time from arrival time about 10:30am to returning him home. You wont need to stay with us;--just come back and get him to stroll him home. About 2pm. email your hourly rate to me for strolling since it only involves walking and no child care. Leave your Phone no. and I will call you. My baby broke the computer so I need to talk by phone this week. Thank you, Shari and Jonah

3) Nanny/Mother's Helper (Illinois)
I am a stay-at-home mom looking for a Nanny/Mother's Helper to help me with my three children ages 3 and 1 (twins). You must be good with kids and willing to help with light housekeeping, non-smoking, and willing to learn. I do expect you to do a really good job if you were to work for me. I keep my house clean and my kids busy with fun and educational activities. Please let me know if you are interested and would like to speak over the phone and when you would be available to start.

On an average weekday, a nanny would help us from 8:15am until 6:00pm. However during that 10 hour time period time there would be approximately 2 hours of private time (while the kids nap) minus time spend doing chores throughout the week. So a good daily rate would be about $60/day for a full day of work (or an hourly rate we could negotiate if we ended up deciding to go that route instead.) A nanny could have dinner with us (if you did spend the night) and snacks and lunch more informally depending on desires. Also, you could sleep here at times or at your house as long as my scheduling needs are met. The employment term would be approximately six weeks for now, but could be extended depending on my needs and our ability to work together as a team. Also, we may take trips and have the nanny come with us, but nothing is currently planned. Additionally, we may ask the nanny to work on occasional weekend days and we would negotiate a daily rate at that time. The nanny would be responsible for paying her own taxes at the end of the year and we as the employers would pay the employment taxes we are required to pay by law. So you pay your own taxes out of the $60/day, but we pay employer taxes in addition to what we pay you. Please email me if you are interested. This is a great job for the right person.

5) Looking for Babysitter/Nanny (Tulsa)
My Name is Natasha Newton I am a mother of 2. I have a 16 month old and a 3 week old I will be going back to work soon and need to start interviewing for babysitters immediately. I want someone that will keep my kids safe and entertained and also someone that can help straighten up the house a little here and there. Not a lot will be required on house but just a little help so that when I get home I can enjoy my time with the kids and not stress about house. I am a young mother so I do worry about my kids alot so I will require that whoever watches my kids has a phone where I can contact them to check on my babies. My children are my life so determining who will watch them is very important to me. I will have to meet with you in person and do require references. I will not reply to emails as I do not spend a lot of time online all my time goes to my kids so plz call me if you are interested number is posted at bottom. I am going to be very reasonable with payment but will not go over my budget, can't put family in debt for a babysitter if that's the case then I might as well stay home, but that is not my wish. Plz if you are interested in meeting with my family to determine if this is the right job for you then call me. Below is a photo of my self Natasha, Cody Jr. AKA CJ my 16 mth old, Isaac my 3 week old, and Cody my wonderful husband. We would all love to meet YOU! Thanks for looking and have a great day.

23) Seeking Live in Nanny (relocate to California)
We had a wonderful nanny that was like a grandma to our children. Sadly, she became sick and we need a new Granny-like Nanny. This position will have a phone interviews, references check and then relocate as quickly as possible to Oak Hills, CA. This is for a loving family with a large 5 bedroom home that works a corporate job and commutes far and so they day ends begins with waking the kids at 6:00am and then a 3-4 hour break in the day time typically then ends at 7:00 p.m. This person must have plenty of patience, love children and be willing to teach decision making skills as they arise. They also should love dogs since there are two Golden Retrievers. We prefer someone that shares similar values, and the compensation is $350.00 a week plus room and board. (Photos of the space will be provided after passing the phone interview). Good driving record is a must since you will be insured and provided a vehicle for use, including personal use.

This position is for a Nanny/House-manager:
Position includes M-F a split shift and one weekend a month to care for 4 children ages 12, 10, 8, 5

Tasks for care of children include:
Wake children up at 6am, get them ready for school and cook them a hot meal (no cereal) at least 3 days a week
Drive them to (private Christian) school in the vehicle provided (Suburban), walk the youngest child into school at 7:50am
Communicate with teachers, as needed daily
While they are in school you have approx. an hour or two of household management duties, but then you would have a break until afternoon when it is time to pick them up
Afternoon Duties include tasks such as:
(begins at 2:30pm)Ttransportation from school and extracurricular activities
Homework assistance
One on one quality time with children to work with them on items such as reading, cooking, clipping coupons for weekly groceries, playing games, etc as you would your own child's enrichment
Cook and prepare dinner for yourself and the children

Household Manager Duties:

Family Laundry (about 2 loads daily)
Pick up house daily

You will be calm and consistent with routine and follow the behavior chart, as well as, handing out incentive bucks to the kids when they are caught being good (positive reinforcement approach is a MUST)
You can cook meals from scratch (using a cookbook is not a problem, Betty Crocker is our favorite) Baking is a bonus but cooking is a MUST
You can multitask to manage household duties, quality care for the children and household chores and facilitating their chores with them
You are free to use the assigned suburban when you are not transporting the children. You are welcome to leave town on your time off, but just please inform us so we know what to expect
You will receive paid vacation either 1 week at Christmas or summer, your choice but medical insurance is not provided
Spring Break is spent traveling to Snow Ski
Some travel to San Diego is necessary on occasion to visit family
We will treat you as a member of our family and we just hope you will do the same for our children
Although age is not a specific criteria, "Granny nanny" is just due to past nanny we loved, was great with the kids and still enjoyed to cook

Please put in the response of the subject line "Granny Nanny"
