Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Welcome to the family of Mark, Hazel and Maverick. We are a small family and we live in beautiful Placitas, New Mexico near the mountains and only 10 minutes away from the large city of Albuquerque, NM (also 30 minutes from Santa Fe, NM). We are very health conscious and we would love to have an Au Pair who is able to assist with healthy cooking occasionally (we will do the same!). Our son is almost 2 years old and everyone he meets falls in love with him instantly. He has wild, curly hair and a smile that makes everyone in the room also smile. He has been on a feeding tube since last year, so he is currently fed through the feeding tube until he is able to eat more foods normally. It's a little extra work but completely worth it and he is growing quickly!

Job Description

The main quality we are seeking is someone who loves Maverick as much as we do. He is an amazing little boy and we want to teach him everything about the world he lives in. His feedings are different than most toddlers right now, so any medical experience and training is helpful but not required (it's easy to learn). Au Pair duties will include feeding and playing with him in addition to changing some diapers and helping him sleep at night (he sleeps all night right now and he takes 1-2 naps each day). A little assistance with feeding the dogs would be a bonus and the ability to cook meals occasionally would also help us a lot (we also cook and we will take care of most meals). The estimated hours each day is 5-6 with 1-2 days off each week. We are happy to include holiday time off for a long term Au Pair also. We are estimating payments of $200 per week in addition to a great home to live in, plus meals, travel and other items that come up. We are also willing to help with the Visa process if a long term agreement is desired by us and the Au Pair.

We built a new home just one year ago in a very safe and quiet community called Placitas. We drive to Albuquerque almost daily for work, shopping and other activities. Our Au Pair will have their own bedroom and bathroom in addition to lots of shared living space, a large kitchen and scenic outdoor living space as well. We have two cars (we can possibly provide an additional car) and we live close to a train station that travels to Albuquerque and Santa Fe many times each day. We have WiFi at home and easy access to many outdoor activities such as hiking trails, mountain biking and even paddling down the Rio Grande river.
