  • I cant imagine being able to mow while i was watching kids but i can see pulling weeds, watering or planting while the kids are outside playing.

  • Probably the best thing to do would be to find the time to mow in the evening.

  • i can do all that with the kids, i have them help me that way they are involved also and we have fun doing it. my neighbor comes over with her little girl all the time.

  • It's like any job. You can't cut your grass while you're working. I think you could do some weeding, but people are paying you to watch their kids. How can you watch them while you are cutting grass? I would be very upset if my daycare provider was cutting grass. Do it after or before.

  • It depends on the size of the lawn. Do the kids nap?
