Introduction to each family member, adults, children and pets
Rich Latimer (me) Dad 44yrs - I am a musician, a mentor, I run a digital agency in Byron Bay and do Men's Work volunteer community support, love outdoors and my family. https://www.richlatimermentor.com and HTTP://richlatimermusic.com to learn more..
Juliana Latimer (wife/mother) 36yrs - She is a dedicated mother, Doula, and Herbalist and loves nature and taking things slow and steady in and out of the home. She is also pregnant and due to birth 1st of September hence the extra help needed leading in and after this time.
Yasmine Melody - 7yr a sprightly social girl VERY creative loves to act sing dance and play gets along well with all ages and has great relationships within and out-of-home caregivers. She LOVES her little system more than anything and is helpful yet when in a mood very cheeky and can be sharp with her wit and tongue at times.
Soraya Harmony - 3yrs - She is one of the most self-settled and independent children you will meet, she is Gemini and will at times confront very strong (3 years do this anyway) but then comply just as much as moods fade. Responds well to strong boundaries given in a soft way... She goes to school two days a week.
A bit about our lifestyle
We live in a beautiful bush shack in the hills behind Mullumbimby near Byron Bay, we enjoy nature a lot beaches, waterfalls, walks and a healthy social life with very deep connections to the community and many activities from the kids and school. We like to travel ALOT and anyone working with us will likely benefit from some all-expenses-paid trips.
What does a typical week look like?
Yasmine goes to school so Mon-Fri there is morning pre- breaky (early riser needed 6:30am) then Juliana will be needing some help to stay on top of things at home with Soraya and prepare for baby coming, so a mixture of housecare/clean/food prep/shop and kids drop/pickup and also child care needed.
On weekends normally I take them for big outings and there will be ample free time for the Au PAir to enjoy the region and possibly a car to use (they will need a licence).
What do you do at the weekend?
As mentioned often I take kids to a Dads club then an adventure or to family and Juliana as the belly is growing rests at home we go to social gatherings and have a wonderful community.
Where we live, our home as well as our suburb
Well, Byron Bay is one of the most famous global tourist places in the world, filled now with many Hollywood celebrities and known for its beauty and unique hippy culture this region is extremely unique.
Our current living situation is a split dwelling comprising of a shack ( we live in) and a Yurt (where the Au PAir bedroom is) a fully self-contained amazing temple of a home. The kids will want regular access to the main room and we will need to negotiate usage of the space for certain events and things however it will really be heaven for anyone staying there at all.
Lots of BBQ and Bush Walking, plus live music and pubs and other fun!
Why did we decide to host an au pair?
We realize now the world is opening up that our region is so attractive for visitors and we reached a time we need the help and know many friends who have used the service and are very happy.
What do we expect from our au pair? (tasks in the family)
KIND, LOVING, FRIENDLY, MATURE...Skills: Child care, cooking, cleaning, domestic up keep, flexibility, school drop and pickups plus assisting Juliana with preparing for the baby, organising clothes and folding, washing and just life stuff like shopping etc...
What sort of personality do you expect from your au pair?
VERY open-minded, easy-going yet diligent and professional when it is time to apply to a task and "on the job" comp[ared to just being there in, non-work times, needs to be extremely professional in the work and then very friendly and social in the nonworking. Someone looking for a really unique family and unique experience ideally a long-term fit..
