Welcome Letter to the Au Pair


We are a family of four and two old dogs with a part-time live in Grandma and her 2 cats. Both my husband and I work full-time, currently we both work at home. We have two children, Sebastian who is 2 and Linus who is 5 months. Both are taking swimming lessons once a week as we have a pool. We live just outside the city with access to Washington DC and tons of museums, art exhibits and other activities. Though a car is necessary, we are a short drive from public transportation.

Sebastian will be starting school soon Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Sebastian had some hearing difficulties early on and has a speech delay. We are working on improving his speech, but he also learned American Sign Language. Though not required, you may benefit from learning and we have free resources to assist you. Sebastian is going through potty training at the moment and is doing a decent job of going in the potty, but needs improvement on letting us know he needs to go. Right now, he does scheduled potty visits. He enjoys being outside and loves to explore, playgrounds are also another favorite. While inside, he likes play with his blocks, his wooden train and reading books (more like looking at them).

Linus does baby things. He is learning to rollover and does daily tummy time and standing time to help. He loves watching his brother play and likes to be included in some way. He has no special needs, just typical baby things. Sebastian does very well with Linus though we are working on the keywords slow, gentle and quiet as his energetic nature sometimes frightens Linus.

We are looking for an AuPair with tons of patience. We want someone to share their favorite activities and culture with the boys. Plan activities in the area for them to do. As part of the family, you'll visit some other states and visit our family. We also participate in local events from time-to-time. Most of our weekends are spent doing housework or yardwork as we fall behind during the week. We are hoping the AuPair will assist with household tasks so we are more able to enjoy the weekends with everyone (AuPair included).

We want the best care possible for our boys and expect the AuPair to provide it while working. However, once the work day is done the AuPair is free to spend their free time in any way they chose. We will even assist in locating activities or driving to public transportation. Our current needs require care Monday through Friday about 8-5 with almost all weekends completely free. We look forward to welcoming an AuPair into our home to experience the US while we experience their country.

The aupair will room across the hall from the boys and share the bathroom. Since the boys are 2.5yrs and 4 months, they don't use the bathroom much. The parents room downstairs. The room has a closet and a nook with a desk. I'm guessing it's considered a large room. The bathroom has a toilet, bathtub/shower combo and 2 sinks. We also have a pool and plenty of yard space.
