Post: Babysitter needed (9/19/2017)

Looking for Afternoon Babysitter in Falls Church. Our children are 14, 17 and 9. This role would be almost entirely focused on our youngest child, a fourth grade girl, as the older kids are typically out and about with activities or self-directed with homework, depending on the day. Our current sitter is leaving to have her first child. She has been super helpful this past year—baking with our 9 year old, doing crafts, playing games, and driving kids and from to activities (mostly in Falls Church City area). We are hoping for a wonderful person to be a special part of our daughter’s life (and by extension our family’s). Hours are 4pm until 6:00-6:30pm, four days per week. If someone could do three days per week, this could probably work.

Post: 3-year-old boy clothes needed (9/18/2017)

One of our RILA families could use some help outfitting their son for fall and winter. In particular he needs a raincoat and rain boots. Email me if you’re ready to pass along your good-condition boy clothes.

Post: Crib available (9/5/2017)

We have a beautiful white wooden crib from Land of Nod. We purchased it four years ago but it is still in good condition. We also have the mattress that goes with the crib that is about 2 years old, which has both an infant and toddler side. We’re done with cribs so let us know if this would be of help to you! The only thing required is that you pick it up! You can contact me at if you are interested.

Post: Room needed (8/25/2017)

I am a Ph.D. Candidate at Georgetown, looking for a nice room for a 6 months lease from late November to late May, when I expect to graduate. My budget is around $950 per month.

Post: Nanny Share for the Fall (8/21/2017)

We have had our wonderful nanny with us 30 hours a week for a year but only need her 15-20 hours a week for the fall (Mondays, possibly Wednesdays, and the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month). She is incredible with our daughter (15 months) and we don’t want to lose her, but we also do not need her for the full 30 hours.

We are hoping to find another family to do a nanny-share with by either having the kids together or by the other family offering our nanny hours on days we do not need her. She charges $20/ hour for one child. Email if interested. My husband’s schedule changes in January so the days could potentially change in January.

Post: Queen Mattress available (8/8/2017)

I have a queen Tempurpedic mattress that I would love to give away. It’s too soft for me, but is in good condition, around 6 years old. Let me know if you’re interested!

Post: Black Futon available (8/8/2017)

Black futon a few years old in great condition! It’s only been used as a guest bed. It takes up too much space so I’d love to give it away.


Post: Childcare Needed (7/18/2017)

Looking for leads on long-term childcare. If you or someone you know is looking to share a nanny or knows a good in-home situation for two kids, let me know at
