Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello potential Au Pair!

We would love to welcome you into our family this summer 2021. We have a sweet 2 year old little boy named Lysander Hawk. He is a total mama’s boy and we don’t need a lot of care, 2-3 days a week maximum. I work mostly from home and Papa works nearby. He is still breastfed so I’m there for nap time and bedtime and I am mostly a stay at home mom but I organize the farmers market in our little mountain town. We have 2 dogs and several chickens which we raise for both eggs and meat. We have a garden and like to grow as much of our own food as possible. We eat organically and locally and love good food. We live in a small mountain town known for art, hiking and skiing.

We would like a French or French native language au pair since I was an Au Pair in France when I was younger and would like to speak French around Lysander so he can learn some of my favorite language. My husband only speaks English though so you will be able to practice with him and with everyone else you encounter. The second language spoken in our region is Spanish so if you want to practice your Spanish there will be opportunities for that here as well (not in the house but in the town).

If you enjoy time outdoors and think you’ll be able to fill your week with activities and hobbies as we will only need you to watch our son for few hours. You will be treated like a foreign exchange student to us more so than hired help, so we would like to get along with you and hope you fit right into our family!

Job Description

Live in our spare room and if you drive there is a car you can use if needed. I need help with Lysander on Fridays & Saturdays June-October 2021. Since it’s so few hours a week we are offering $300/month plus room and board. You are welcome to eat all meals with us and I’d love to take you around the area some to explore a bit, Albuquerque & Santa Fe are bigger cities to the south and Denver to the north, in between is beautiful open space where we can go hiking or camping. Our Au Pair will have to enjoy small town life and time outdoors.

Au Pair will have own bedroom and access to our main bathroom access through the hallway where Lysander takes his baths. We use our own bathroom off of our bedroom. We don’t have TV but we do have wifi from 8am-midnight. We could also get you a bicycle to ride if you don’t drive. We are about 3 miles from the center of town and it is paved all the way. We live close to the hospital and other services.
