Day Care Disco
I'm a teacher. Most of you probably know that already. This year, I've been blessed to have my sister in law take care of Kaelin, and it has been WONDERFUL! Next year, my cousin has said she would keep Kaelin for 4 days a week and my husband would keep her on Fridays because he works from home. While we are sooo thankful for my cousin, she lives in the opposite direction of where we both work about 1/2 an hour. This would mean if I took Kaelin I would travel north for 30 minutes, drop her off and then travel south for about an hour each day...two times a day...same thing for my hubby...not very desirable especially with gas so high.
Now, we're discussing trying to get in on a nanny share with another teacher at my school (she lives near the school) for next year...this would really be great, but I also hate to not go with my cousin, who is now counting on Kaelin being with her and the extra $$...
We are trying to rent or sell our house and move closer to my cousin, but in this market...it's not been easy. What do y'all do for childcare, if you work outside the home?
