I am ok with the night care so lets proceed…. Little about my daugther,she is a very intelligent girl that love`s to play and love to share are word with her parents and any body close to her,and also she love to read poems and she love to go out door once in a week maybe to the park to have some fun okay that is all about her for now. So my method of payment will be by cashiers check or by money orders okay even at the moment  am not in the state now am in europe with her on holiday visit to her uncle let me know if i can make an upfront payment for your services so i can make the payment,since i will be leaving for Australia from europe and she will be in the usa by month end too ….. Let me know the name and address of where u want the money send okay…i will instruct my branch office in the state to release britney monthly allowances to you for payment,.and the payment you will receive will be in excess so you will have to deduct your funds for the services and
keep the rest with you for britneys upkeep and miscellanous expenses on her while she is with you…….Let me know if i can trust you to keep her allowances well till the time she will need it cos so many people can not be trusted with money issue.Get back to me soon with your full payment details as in name and address with phone numbers with the cost for the nights.Thanks.— On Wed 06/21, <

hour… Our au pair should be an outgoing, energetic person, self propelling, a communicator, independent, responsible, practical, tidy and flexible.In a family with one young kid it can be busy, so you don’t mind a little bit of pressure now.With a good sense of humor you’ll manage.She’s intelligent, She can challenge you with questions, discussion etc, but you think that’s fun.
