As they say, "you only get one chance to make the first impression" so write about your family and where you live. Describe your au pair's duties, number of working hours, free days etc. and how much pocket money she'll receive. Write something about the au pair's accommodation - if she'll have her own room, Internet access etc.
Remember, it's not only if you want an au pair, it's also if she wants you.
