Nanny Share/Child Care Provider

I am seeking in home child care for my 10 month old niece. Our needs are 30ish hours per week with a budget of $200/week. Anyone have a nanny share opening or any thoughts? I know it's a tall order.

  • robin in WRP Tired, very tired

    You might find something here: http://www.npnparents.org/

  • Nick Da Logan Square resident

    I'm legitimately curious: Is it normal for providers of child care to make so little? I would hope not, but maybe it's the norm?

    I don't mean to be rude, but those numbers equate to a measly $6.67 per hour, which is far below minimum wage. I'm not sure whether minimum wage laws apply to this type of employment, maybe they don't, but I would still think that providing convenient in-home child care should earn at least a somewhat livable wage.

  • Nick she's looking for a nanny share which means the other family would also be paying. So it's more like $12 per hour. But typically a nanny makes between 13 to 16 per hour.

"West Bucktown" Logan Square - 2400-2700 W Moffat

Does anyone have an opinion of this area in terms of safety or crime and future potential? I've been looking at properties in the area and noticed that there is a lot of new development (condos, single family, townhomes) specifically around Rockwell & Moffat. Bloomingdale Trail (606) and Lucy Flower park are in area which seem nice, but still unsure about the area.

    Donald, you say that not all black or Puerto Ricans are of low income but, in your first post, in response to someone using the phrase "upward trajectory," you accused them of meaning fewer "Brown and Black folks" in the neighborhood. You speak of the "dog whistle," but you yourself are perpetuating the stereotype that minorities can't improve a neighborhood.

    Since I have lived here, we have had middle and higher income black and Hispanic families move into the neighborhood (and continue to live here). There are working class residents of all races who also live here -- they are not criminals. The people who have left? Those like the ones who hung out at the abandoned house across the street and dealt drugs, robbed nearby houses, and got into fights all the time, and the ones who didn't live here, but came around looking for trouble. They don't come by as much anymore. I consider that upward trajectory.

    I get that some people can't tell the difference between a normal Black or Puerto Rican person and a s---bird Black or Puerto Rican (and they probably couldn't tell the difference between whites, either, but only give the s---bird white person the benefit of the doubt), but I would respectfully request that you take care not to blow your own dog whistle and support the prejudice that Brown and Black folks aren't part of a neighborhood improvement.

Gunshots this morning (Spaulding/Dickens area)?

Was wondering if anyone else heard gunshots early this morning? My husband and I were woken up this morning by them and could hear them from our alley for over the course of at least 15 minutes. I was so half asleep that I don't know what time it was, I just know that shortly after, the sun began to rise. Also, I know it's been mentioned many times on here, but what is the proper number to call to report something like this. Is it 911? Thanks!

  • Did anyone see that there was a shooting on Sunday morning at the gas station on Addison and Laramie? It happened around 3am. 2 people were shot. Have you heard anything about this incident? This violence is hitting too close to home.

  • Mel

    I heard them as well. I thought it was around 3:30, but I was half asleep. I'm at Kedzie/Palmer, and they initially sounded close by. Then a few minutes later, I heard them again from farther west. Then a few minutes later I heard them from even farther. There had to be at least 10 shots.

Hello Everyblock! My husband and I found a very sweet dog tonight named Jackie in the alley, tied to a fence post, behind Tony's. A neighborhood kid said they'd seen her there since about 1 pm, and we found her around 8:30 pm. She has up to date rabies tags and a Home Again tag. She is well-fed, has healthy teeth, skin, and fur, and is clearly somebody's pet. She's strong though and we figure she may have bolted, somebody caught her and tied her up hoping her owners would find her? We aren't sure.

She is probably about 30 lbs, very strong but sweet. She responds to her name, and knows commands like sit and stay. She loves chicken, but what dog doesn't.

If anyone knows Jackie's owners, please respond! We have called Home Again and they have called her owners, but they did not pick up so we're not sure what's going to happen tonight. We're letting her stay with us overnight but if you know where Jackie lives we would love nothing more than to reunite her with her owners.

    Update - Home Again was able to contact her owners and we were able to reunite her with her family after getting the background on how she may have ended up in the alley. Her owners are an older couple and she's a strong dog who slipped their grip while on a walk. She was very happy to be home!! I'd never heard of Home Again before and it helped us figure out who owned her and they served as an intermediary to let us ensure we were actually taking her back to a safe place. Pretty cool.

Morning, noon and night this dog barks and I think its been going on for over a year now. Honestly don't think or cant even fathom that I am the only one tired of this.

I have been doing research online and I thought there was a Barking Dog Noise Ordinance, or some sort of Dog Barking nuisance law for Cook County/Chicago but I can not locate it?
I don't want to call animal control, but fear that Its my only option - plus after my research, is recommended.
Calling 311 or 911 isn't going to solve the problem. Asking the owner nicely to control the dogs barking will be taken care of first, I just want to make sure if things keep going south, I have the correct recourse.

    There may be an underlying behavior or health issue here. Dogs with separation anxiety will bark constantly when left alone. Sometimes the owner's are not even aware of this issue until told by a neighbor.

    Another issue is senior dogs with dementia type issues can bark far too often. I have a 16 year old dog and in the last six months or so she has really increased her barking. She's having some doggie dementia type issues.

    Just wanted to mention a couple of these possibilities as may help the conversation w/ your neighbor.

Abandoned home full of dogs?

I was walking my dogs on a new route this past Saturday morning and passed by a deserted-looking house that seemingly contained a pack of barking dogs. I know what two or three dogs sound like; this was way more than that, and it was particularly strange emanating from such a dilapidated home.

I could be mistaken; just wanted to see if anyone else had a similar experience on Sawyer, between McLean & Palmer.

  • I think it is or another one is 2116N. Sawyer. A friend reported 2116 to ACC and not sure if anything happened. Upped it to PETA-political comments unwelcome-they actually show up and mediate or offer to take dogs. The garage has an orange unsafe sticker.

  • Ha! 2053 N Sawyer is not under renovation, the owner just slaps on new siding & what-not to hide the holes in the building. It's very dilapidated & infested with rats. One almost ran over my foot a bit ago when I was walking by. There are dogs that live on the first floor, their owner is fantastic & they're taken care of but I do worry about everyone that lives in the place, it looks like it's about to fall apart with a good wind.

2600 W. Corland - CHA Building Rehab?

    Here is word for word what was explained via email:

    "The building is being gut rehabbed by a company called Apex.

    The CHA project manager for this project is Marc Rutzen.

    Once the rehab is completed later this year, it will be returned to leasing. The property manager for this site is currently Hispanic Housing Development Corporation. The CHA Asset Manager that oversees our contract with HHCDC is Virginia Billings."

    So it looks like the property may have residents by the end of the year.
