Looking for Nanny for special situation (Shoreline/Monroe)
(google map)
Hello! I am a single mom of two beautiful little children. They are almost 5 and 2. We live in Shoreline and are looking for someone for our unique situation. Mom lives in Shoreline with the kids and Dad is currently in prison in Monroe. We are looking for someone who is willing to take the children to visit Dad 2-3 days per week. The days would be EVERY Friday and Monday and one weekend day per week (this is somewhat open and may not be every weekend). The hours would be from 12:00pm until roughly 6:30-7pm. You MUST be able to get approved for Dad's visiting list. You would be required to travel from Shoreline to Monroe and back, take the kids to visit Dad, and change the two year old as needed. Dad is VERY VERY hands on and will do most of everything while they are visiting. You will be asked to pitch in here or there, but mainly this position is to transport the kids and be willing to do a puzzle or play a game while they visit. The kids are very adorable, outgoing, sweet, and silly. They love their Daddy very much and want as much time with him as possible.

Also, Mom requires someone with NO criminal background, previous experience with kids, and references. She herself used to be a Nanny, so she knows what to look for. We know this is a unique situation, but with the current status of the marriage and Mom seeking employment, it is VERY much needed. We are willing to pay up to $15.00 per hour. You must have a car, clean driving record, and insurance. Please email Mom and come be part of our fun family!

Ya know - this is definitely WTF? But - is it really that bad? It looks like steady decent money - and the sitter would learn a little about the world beyond our comfort levels. It could also be a good deed for the dad and kids, alot of people are in jail for really dumb reasons...

If I lived in the area and it didn't conflict with my schedule, I would totally go after this job! It's really not that bad, unless going to the prison is uncomfortable for you. I think it could be awkward the first few times, but I would get used to it. It's definitely something you can talk about later in your life!

I don't get why this is wtf, honestly... it's unique but not terrible. Mom sounds like a kind human being (She compliments the dad even though they're apparently separating)

What am I missing? There is nothing wrong with this ad. It is a real life situation.
