- Escrevi errado o nome da host e o pior ela percebeu e pior ainda me corrigiu colocando o nome dela em negrito;
- Mandaram um e-mail com zilhões de perguntas;
- Demorei 2 das para responder;
- Respondi sem economizar nas palavras, mas de maneira objetiva;
- Recebi outra notificação da APC sobre a mesma família; (por que? alguém sabe?)
- Mandei outro e-mail com várias perguntas pra eles na quinta.
- Na sexta a Host mom disse que me responderia no fim de semana porque na sexta era niver do Dad.

Oi Tudo Mundo,
Dear Au Pair,
We are in desparate need of a mommy's helper for our family. We have a very unique and fun blended family that is full of creativity. My name is Shae and my husband's name is Shafiq. Between the two of us, we have a total of 12 children! However, we only have 4 children that actually spend the majority of their time living in our household. Because of our unique family make-up we can sometimes have anywhere from 1 child in thet house to 9 children in the house. Our children range from the ages of 20 to 15 months. The children that live with us full time are 5, 4 and 15 months and we are expecting another child in June.
All that being said, we are probably one of the most loving and nuturing families that you ever want to meet. I am an attorney and my husband is a music producer and our family travels quite a bit. Ideally, we would like someone who is flexible and doesn't mind traveling with our family and who loves to engage in creative activities. There is music constantly playing in our home and our children love to dance, sing, paint and play imaginary games. We are currently teaching our children how to garden so that they can learn more about nature.
We have a television in our home, but we don't allow our younger children to watch much television. Instead, we encourage them to spend their time doing arts and crafts and reading. Our children also attend after-school activities and love to have a lot of routine and structure throughout their day.
There is so much more that we could say about our family, but you would have to chat with us to fully appreciate who we are and what we represent. To say the least, God is the center of our family and love is the creed by which we operate.A única coisa boa q vi até agora é que eles n tem pets.
Pois é, n deu certo com a family. Sorte, azar ou destino, isso n dá p saber agora... O que passou, passou, vão se as mãos ficam se os dedos, o que é meu tá guadado, se n aconteceu é pq Deus n quis. Tah tah... isso é o que uma pessoa que está de fora do processo pensaria e é o que mais tenho ouvido. Mas pera lá... tem um coração aqui dentro q está há quase um ano tentando realizar um sonho e que fez tudo o que pode p chegar lá e agora... tem q ficar de braços cruzados esperando a vontade de Deus, a hora certa ou whatever.
We do have rules around car use: no long/out of state trips, no talking on the cell phone while driving, absolutely no drinking when driving and put gas in periodically.
We also expect au pair to be home by 10 pm on any night where she is working the next day. We don't want someone who is responsible for our daughters well being to be tired or not 110% there for her.
We also ask that if you have friends over that they are introduced to us so that we know who is in the house. We also expect that while you are working during the day that you are not on the phone or computer.
Which is the rule about receive and make phone calls in your house?You'll have a cell phone (provided by us) to use on your free time - no international calls or texting - you may also use the home phone for local calls but no international calls - if there are texts made, we would ask that you reimburse us since that's not part of our calling plan ... of course, you can use calling cards to make calls internationally (which is what Liana does)Can I receive some visit in your house?Yes, of course, you can have friends over - we would want you to introduce us to anyone who is new in our house - As we become more comfortable with each other and your friends, we are also okay with friends staying overnight. We are not comfortable with anyone (other than you) staying in the house while we are away-Can I study when Savannah is sleeping during the day and when I have no duties to do?Yes, you can study and read of course! Please know though that that would only be if there's down time - nothing else to do for Savannah ... We would not be comfortable with personal phone, computer use or tv watching during this time.Is a state driver's license required? How is it work?I don't believe it is necessary - if it is, we'd be happy to take you wherever you need to get one. You may also want to get a social security card but I don't think it's neccessary either.I suppose I'll have to pay for the gas when I use the car, so how is it going to work?Yes, since you'll be using the car for your own use, you would be responsible for paying for gas - so, when you're out or done with the car, you would bring it back to the house filled to where it started out ... if for any reason, there's no gas when you start out (which happens sometimes) I will give you the money back or you don't have to fill it back up when you return it .... basically, we look for curtesy - do the right thing, you know?Will I have to pay for the car's insurance?No. We will take care of that.Will I be responsible for any household duties? If so, which ones?There isn't anything specific that you need to do for the house but because we are all using the kitchen and so forth, we ask that you do things as you see them - if there are dirty dishes then wash or put in the dishwasher, just like we would. or the garbage, if it's full, then take it out like we would .... does that make sense?Will I have a private bathroom?Yes....Will I be paid per week or month?You're paid once a week at the end .... although, I move very quickly, so I sometimes forget - if that happens, please let me know - of course, I will always try to be on time!
Como sempre eu gosto de botar o carro na frente dos bois... se tem uma coisa difícil pra mim é "deixar as coisas rolarem" ou "ver onde é que isso vai dar" geralmente sou precipitada e saiu dando opiniões ou tomando decisões antes do tempo. Mas agora, passado o momento de loucura, fiz diferente e estou gostando do resultado.
