1) Part Time Nanny (Boston)
Part-time nanny needed for post-school pickup and care for two awesome kids for about 15-20 hours/week in lovely East Cambridge home. The kids are 3.5 (girl) and almost 6 (boy), they need to be picked up around 2:30 and kept from killing each other or the dog for about 4 hours until folks get home. Keeping them from killing the dog is easy -- they're all very sweet, funny, smart, and happy to do art, read, snuggle, listen to music, or follow you around, annoying you with questions about dinosaurs, yoda, princesses and why they can't kill the dog.
You need a driver's license, although not a car; you need a sense of humor and creativity, and the ability to prepare dinner, do some laundry and other kid-centric light housework, and keep them away from poisonous stuff.
This is a good gig for a grad student or part-time professional who wants some fun, love, humor and laundry in their life. Firemen would also be welcome. The house is nice, the kids are nice, the parents and the dog are fairly neurosis-free and we'd all love to meet you. Scheduling interviews now -- job starts in Dec./Jan., although early get-to-know-you babysitting sessions will be a good idea. Please, no freaks or drunks.

8) Get an American Nanny! (Seattle)
American jobs are being outsourced at an alarming rate. Just because an Au Pair might be cheaper doesn't mean they are better. Get an AMERICAN to watch your kids. Small, non-school aged children don't need to learn another language before they master their own. When they start school they can learn to speak another language. There are many women in the US that are qualified to be a nanny that charge about the same amount without paying all the fees and then you don't have to pay to feed them while they live in your home. Why pay the government fees when you can have a nanny come to your home for $200 a week? That's how much I charge for the one child I am watching. When fathers all over the US are losing their jobs there are plenty of moms that would love to become a nanny to help keep a roof over their heads.

12) Seeking PT nanny for discounted Rent of 2/2 furnished Apt (California)
WHAT WE HAVE TO OFFER: We own a beautifully furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom loft in Potrero Hill. The live/work loft has three levels, two entrances, secured parking, in unit laundry, and designer furnishings. There are two Western-facing patios that offer lots of light. The location is convenient for communicating (close to Highway 280, but without the noise) and is close to public transportation (the T stops outside and CalTrain is a few blocks away). The loft is walking distance to the UCSF Mission Bay campus. We're currently seeking a renter for $3400 per month. We'd be willing to accept $2000 per month in exchange for part-time nanny services.
WHAT WE WANT: We would love to find a part-time nanny to help care for our 5-month-old daughter. She is quiet and well-behaved. We live in SOMA, which is a short commute from the loft. Dad works full-time but gets home by 7pm each night. Mom works part-time, mostly from home. We're seeking a nanny would would want to work about 20 hours per week during the weekdays. Most of the time, the hours would be quite flexible, though there would be some days, arranged in advance, where a full day of care would be needed. We would expect a loving person to help feed, change, and play with our daughter. We are NOT seeking a cook, house cleaner, etc. Child care would take place in our home or out and about in San Francisco; the loft would be your place of residence, not a part-time day care.
13) Babysitter needed ASAP (Minneapolis)
Our family moved here from Pennsylvania earlier this year and haven't taken the time to find a babysitter here as of yet. I know that it is EXTREMELY last minute, but I was hoping to find a babysitter for tonight. After tonight, we would need a babysitter occasionally on a Friday or Saturday night. Probably from 8 or 9 in the evening until 2 or 3 am. We would like to find someone with their own transportation, but we may be able to provide transportation if needed.
We have a son that just turned 4 in August and we have a daughter that will be 2 this Christmas Eve. They will both be in bed when we leave. On rare occasions they will wake up for one reason or another, but will go back to sleep. Our daughter is still in diapers, so if she wakes up, she may need to be changed. Other than that, we just need someone here with them. We are hoping to find someone that could do this for $7 an hour. We are not sure of the going rate these days, but since both kids would be sleeping, we hope this is fair.
We are non-smokers and would prefer someone that doesn't smoke as well, but will consider a smoker providing that there is no smoking in our home.
Please let me know if there's anything I forgot. I am rushing and am sure I missed something. If you are interested in babysitting for us and are unable to do so tonight, please feel free to still contact me as we are still in need of a babysitter for other date nights.
Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you :) Also, if you are able to babysit tonight, then please include a phone number in your response so that I can reach you.
14) Spanish speaking nanny wanted (Norfolk)
Looking for a GREAT nanny to provide care for our 17 month old child.

Daily task will include:
Cooking dinner for a family of 5

You must have reliable transportation to and from home. (Great Bridge area of Chesapeake)
Please reply by email
* Response from angry CL readers:
15) RE: Spanish speaking nanny wanted (Norfolk)
I've been both a nanny and a housekeeper - NEVER both at the same time. Sounds like you need a maid that will watch the kids when they get home from school. I bet you are one of the "we won't pay you more than $8 for your time" people too. If you COULD pay well, you would be able to hire a nanny and a house keeper!
For those considering this job - take NO LESS than $15 an hour - I'd shoot for more since you have to be bi-lingual and cook for 5.
16) RE: Spanish speaking nanny wanted (Norfolk)
Cooking for the family (the parents) and cleaning the home are NOT the responsibilities of a NANNY. That is a totally different profession. A NANNY will cook and clean up after herself and the child(ren) she is caring for.
What an ABSURD request! Would you ask your housekeeper to be your nanny? What about asking your gardener to give your car a tune up? You're trying to take advantage of people, because the economy is rough and it's disgusting.
I hope your nanny steals your pearls and screws your husband.
.... HOW MUCH?!

You do realize you are offering a whopping $3 an hour ($400 per month for 32.5 hours per week) for this gig, don't you ? Nanny's are going for $15/hr currently... You must have meant $400 per WEEK, right? Not sure if $3 an hour qualifies as PAY...
