Yes when I can but it's mostly for family which I do for no charge as they do the same for me when needed

No, I did ot once as a favor, no pay but won't do it again. It was just too much and my kids did not get the attention they deserve etc plus now I homeschool so it is just too much

That's great.  I wish I had my family close by.  DH's family live closer but I hate asking them to watch my girls.

I totally understand.  It would be hard to homeschool with another kid in the mix.

That is so great, I'm jealous.  If my sister and I lived closer we would do the same.

I did, still talk to the family too...he was a preemie, 27 weeker so when I started watching him he was still on oxygen and weighed about 5 lbs. The mom worked from home, so she was always there but from 7-2 it was all me...cause she was locked in the office. It was nice because while he was asleep I could do my homework after the few things I had to do were done.
