Hello! I´am Linda
Dear au pair,
We are 4 in the family. My partner is irish and I am french (from Guadeloupe).
We have 2 lovely daughters. Melodie-Grace who is 6 very soon and Emilie-Rose,2 years.
Ambrose is an aircraft engineer and I am giving music lessons from home. I am a current music student too.
We have 2 dogs, really harmless and very friendly. They are called Tiny and Chanel.
We live is a small village called Fordstown.
It's quite quiet around here.
We are near the oldest irish town called Kells and we are near the county town, Navan.
We live in the country side so the children have a big garden to play. I would highly encourage outdoor activities (if weather permits)
Melodie-Grace goes to school from 9.30 till 2.10 PM. The school is about 5 minutes, by car.
Emilie-Rose is a dynamic baby, very lively.
I would expect from my au pair to be fully dedicated to my girls. They are very easy to mind.
The timetable is 5 days per week from 8am till 6pm, roughly. I am going to Dublin on Saturdays, so the days off can change from SAT-SUN or SUN-MON.
The reason why is that Ambrose has shifted timetables and he will be able to mind the girls on Saturdays if he is available.
We need a flexible au pair in this regard.
I would like the au pair to be able to drive and feel confident to do it on the other side.
I wish I could be dealing with a mature and reliable person, who can have activities with them.(No tv during the week)
I expect the au pair to prepare Melodie for school (dress her, breakfast, preparation of the lunch box) bring her and collect her with Emilie-Rose.
Melodie has extra-activities (Gym, swimming-pool etc..) so the au pair will have to bring her to them.
Taking care of Emilie is important too.
I will ask the au pair to take care of her own room and tidy up a bit the girls toys, encouraging them to tidy up themselves but no cleaning will be asked.
The au pair will be dealing with Emilie-Rose while Melodie is at school. Once Melodie is back from school, the au pair will have to "prepare if she can" and give them their dinner.
She will be able to keep the car provided for the school runs to go the shopping center in Navan,or english lessons on her spare time.
Petrol will be provided for school runs and few driving around the place.
We are very easy going persons and very respectful of the person who will be dealing with our 2 beautiful girls.
We will make sure that the au pair has her own privacy .
She will have her own bathroom and a big bedroom.
