The new addition to the family is expected the first of November. The parents are thrilled and ready for all of the life changes ahead. The were both college athletes and are hard working professionals. The loves to spend time with family and friends, enjoy sports watching and playing (especially golf), but also have no problem killing a afternoon watching movies or college football. The live at the end of cul-de-sac in a home with several great living areas for the nanny and baby to hang out. Both parents do occasionally travel for work, typically for 2 full days. They will do their best to now schedule any trips needed on opposite schedules. Due to having no family in town what would be very helpful to them, is to have someone who would be willing to stay over night a couple of times  a year. For example if one of their trips overlapped each others by a day, the nanny would work her normal Wednesday shift, stay overnight and work her Thursday shift and get off at her normal time at 5pm. Then she could either have Friday off or get extra pay for staying overnight, whatever was mutually agreed upon.

The family is very friendly, approachable and easy to talk to. They are big believers of treating others the way they would want to be treated. Their first nanny was with them for 3 years before the moved to Des Moines. She loved the family and even moved to Des Moines with them for the first 6 months, then returned home. (Being 3 hours away from family and friends was harder than she expected!)  The parents are both Physicians and have demanding schedules. Because they have no family in town and new to the area, dependability is extremely important. Currently Advi attends Appletree preschool from 8:30am-11am. The nanny would pick him up, have lunch together and play time for 2 hours. Then drop him off at Woodland Hills Elementary from 1-3:30pm for speech therapy and some fun learning time with his friends. Then some down time at home again until 5pm when the parents return. During the 2 1/2 hour breaks their current nanny will do occasional errands, laundry and light housekeeping/tidied up and allows for occasional personal errands or appointment.

Keeping up with their laundry, some light housekeeping (they have a housekeeper, but tidying up and doing some of the daily stuff) running errands, and cooking for the boys. They are great employers and very personal. Totally devoted to the family, so they try to give a 110% to each of their businesses, then be able to focus on family time when 6 pm rolls around and have a couple of hours of quality time together. They love to travel a couple of times a year around kids school schedule, so someone willing to travel occasionally and be part of the family would be a big plus.
