About the Children
boy, 4 months- He is an adorable almost 3-month-old baby at present. girl, 5 months- she is super sweet and cuddly. Both babies are doing really well and have been meeting all of their milestones. They are sleeping and eating without issue!
Caring for the two babies with the parents are working. Both moms will be newly going back to work at the beginning of the year, so this will be a time for transition. During the day, they will have both babies at either home (only a few blocks apart). The nanny will be responsible for diapering, playing with them, taking them out for walks, feeding them, and putting them down for naps. Really engaging with both babies mindfully while you are together is so important and keeping them on track with their milestones while communicating changes to the parents! While they are sleeping, the nanny will help to keep things tidy, help with laundry for either baby, and prep meals or wash bottles. One family has an older daughter, though she has an afterschool nanny and will only likely be with you very occasionally.
Covid practice for family 1: Dad is working from home and mom is on maternity leave until January. They'd been in Martha's Vineyard for 6 months before returning recently to the city for the school. The girl is in school full-time and they drive her so they can avoid public transportation. As a family, they always wear masks outdoors and wash their hands a lot, even the daughter. They go to the playground, but only play with other kids wearing masks. They have a cleaning lady who comes a few times/week and have known her for 12 years so they trust her and she is super communicative with them. Other people who have to come in for work on the apt wear a mask. They have been to outdoor restaurants, but not eating indoors. They have done some socially distant outdoor visits. They have a small pod of friends they see. At the girl's school, no one is allowed inside and you have to wear a mask to drop off and pick up. They are all wearing masks in the classroom for most of the day and washing their hands a lot. The teachers wear masks all day. It's a small private school and they are keeping the kids distant as much as they can well. Covid practice for Family 2: Mom just returned to work and dad is working from home. They've been very safe and keep their bubble small. They only have the one baby so they have spent most of the past few months with her at home and not socializing much. They wear masks and practice a lot of good hand health hygiene.
For at least 3-6 months, and potentially longer!
