 so it seems to be working out for you and your family?...how long have you had the babysitter to assist you?, im sure thats a big help, and was a good idea as well

Quoting UpstateAnnette:

Hi! I am Annette.  I have a bit of a unique situation.  I home school my children and also work full time.  In NY it is legal to hire someone else to do 50% of the teaching, so my baby sitter helps me out.  My daughter is in second grade, my son is in K and I have a 3y/o in preschool.   When I get home from work I do school with my daughter while hubby cooks dinner and then he does school while I clean up after dinner.   We do more school on Friday afternoons since I have them  off from work.   My 5y/o is 3/4 of the way through his curriculum and read a level 2 book(second grade) the other day.  He would be so bored in public school. When we first started we lived in an inner city area and I could not see sending my children to that school.   Now we live in a much better area but in the same school district.  I

We have had the same babysitter since I had to go back to work 3 months after my(now 7y/o) was born.   She started with basic preschool with each of the kids at 2y/o.  Unfortunately it is costing us a lot of money and we are now considering public school but I HATE the idea.

We have not made any changes yet.  It is very much a $$ issue.  I am hoping we can hold off until my nearly 4y/o is school age and perhaps grandma will retire and be able to do the after school care.
