It sucks!I'm a single mom & can't really afford to take more time off or pay a sitter. Just my luck, all my nieces are working this summer. I have 2 very good friends who are not working right now. One has health problems, so understandable why she can't help right now. The other (my best friends of 30 yrs) doesn't drive, is home all day alone & her kids are all (almost) grown & working & yet she can't help me out either. She wants to paint the house instead. I know that is important too, but it really could wait. I rarely every ask for help sitting. Before you ask....she adores my dd & vice versa. I'm just at a loss. It doesn't pay to take her to a daycare as a drop in since I don't make enough to cover the cost.
I'm not mad at her or anything, I just know that if the shoes were reversed I would not even hesitate helping her. I wouldn't even ask her for gas money. But that's just me.
