Been there. I could not. I called the local high school and spoke w/ the guidance counselor and also the principal. They were kind enough to hook me up w/ an honor student who I hired as a Mothers Helper for only a few bucks an hour (plus all the mountain dew she could drink!) My hubby left for work around 8:40am and we kept occupied w/ tv, movies, computer games, books, etc til 1:45 when she got off school and stayed for 4 hours and did all the hardcore stuff like getting the wiggles out and helping fold clothes and so on. I did some ebay-ing and hubby worked 3 hours overtime a week to make up the difference.
