  • When we had 2 kids and I worked, hubby watched them. We used daycare for our first, but there was no way we would pay for daycare for 2. Also, hers was an in-home daycare run by a friend of the family. We paid $4 an hour.

  • A young Mexican girl. I pay her $7 an hour and my children love her! They are always very excited when she comes over and I trust her. She comes to birthday party's and even thanksgiving. She is very sweet. She can always put them down for a nap (something I cant seem to do). Shes understanding of when I have to work late. She is not even going to charge me extra for the third child I will be having soon.
