A new friend and mom-to-be is looking for suggestions for daycare/preschools in or near Jenkintown, for a newborn. Let me hear your best experiences!
Friends who live near me~ if you're looking for in-home child care for the summer, let me know and I'll hook you up with someone great!
Grandma the Best Sitter?
Whoa. Sure, bedtimes are stretched and snacks run more freely-- that's part of the sleep-over fun-- but nothing like ruined potty-training or sleep schedules!
How old were your kids when you first left them with a non-family babysitter (let's not count daily daycare; think a night out)?
What's the going rate for babysitters?
Does it matter how old they are? If you're home or not? The age and quantity of your kids? Help me out.
I have lots of thoughts on this-- what are yours?
Asking Too Much?
Imagine that you get home from work to find coffee mugs on the counter, bottles with dried-up milk in them, and various bowls-- including two with now-cemented rice cereal in them-- in the sink.
Is it ok to nicely ask your babysitter to clean up after herself and rinse, if not wash, the baby's things?
Now imagine the same thing, except babysitter= mother/mother-in-law who's watching baby for free. Same answer?
With a love of children and a passion for reading and writing, Kelly decided to share her experiences with others through the pages of the Crib Notes book and site.
