Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Originally translated from Français
Hello, we are going to have 7, 9 months a little difficult because we are resuming at 37 years (Sophie, the mother) and 38 years (Romain, the father) our studies. My husband, who was a designer, is going back to university for his second year to work in the industry. And I became a school teacher and I have to validate my master's degree in education and I have a kindergarten class to take care of. I'm going to have a lot of work ... Due to our complicated schedules, we looked for a solution and we thought about taking an au pair. We live in a neighborhood 10 minutes from downtown Brest, in Finistère, at the western tip of France. It's the end of the world but it's a very pleasant city. The first beaches are 20 minutes by car. And the coast is wild. You have to love large natural spaces and not be afraid of rain and storms!

We expect our au pair to be first and foremost responsible. Responsible for 2 young children who have different rhythms and specific needs, that's no small feat! So that they are safe with her, that she be playful and know how to fit children in their daily life. And benevolent !!! Obviously, we would like her to know how to adapt tactfully to our family life, which was a little turned upside down this year, so that her stay is pleasant for everyone. May she be easy-going and discreet to respect our family privacy despite the proximity and our choice to welcome someone into our small tribe.

In return, she will be very well received, respected in her privacy, advised. We will introduce him to our beautiful department of Finistère and we will be able to help him improve his French. I speak French, German, English, Italian and Breton, the regional language. I know what it means to be immersed in a culture different from mine. Well, considering my schedules, I wouldn't have time on weekdays to cook great cuisine, but we cook up good little meals on weekends and the surroundings are very beautiful to discover when we go out. Finistère is very exotic.

We would need someone to look after our children while we are away from work for me, and in college for my husband. We expect our au pair to take the children in the morning, pick them up in the afternoon, play with them while waiting for our arrival. Sailor, 11 months old, goes to nursery during the day. With an au pair, he will do fewer hours of community care and would be more serene, and so will we, otherwise, he will go around the dial there! It's too much ... Because after a year spent with him without working, I am worried that he may be away from home for so long. Côme has to go to school in the morning at 8:30 a.m. and leaves school at 4:30 p.m. where he collects him. The school is 7 minutes by car or 15 minutes by bus, it's in the neighborhood next door. The neighborhood library is within walking distance, which is convenient. And on the way to school. We will need his help on Saturday, for about half a day, to allow us to do a little work. Otherwise, she will be able, in her free time, to learn French, work on her lessons during the day, discover the city of Brest and the coast. Curiosity is a real asset when you come here.

Well, to be honest, our apartment is not very big, but very well furnished by my husband. and rather pretty. There is a balcony which overlooks the trees. It overlooks a large park by the water, we walk our children all the time there, it is beautiful and very practical. The apartment is 80 square meters. There are 2 bedrooms. The au pair will take the children's room during her stay and arrange it as she sees fit. In fact, we sleep with our little ones in co-sleeping, co-sleeping. They will therefore play in the living room and outside where there are many play areas. We will therefore share our kitchen and our bathroom, like roommates. You have to accept that. The accommodation is clean (a cleaning lady comes every week) and we try, as much as possible with children, to be tidy and to keep the house too chaotic.
