    I have had a daycare child with me for about 2-1/2 years and have not had any problems with this family. The little girl will be starting school in the fall and leaving my care. About half a year ago or so the mother mentioned that she might pull her a couple months early and put her in a...

    My MIL lost her job not long before the economy whet downhill. She lives with her SO and he is a tightwad. So, I talked to DH about paying family to keep the dc instead of non-family. My oldest was starting to have problems at the DC they were going to anyway and it was a good time for a...

    In three weeks, I'll have two more daycare kids! And an extra $500/month! Yay! I'm thrilled! Especially since I know these kids and they are so well behaved (unlike the 4 I have now). The only concern that I even have with them is that my house is oriented to the 7 and under crowd...these two...

    Hi all, I had decided that come August 2009, I was going back to school to get my two-year degree. I'm perfectly fine with this change in my life and my family supports me. :) My dilemma right now is how to go about doing daycare for two kids, one of which is developmentally disabled. We have...

    I'm not sure where to put this It's very hard for me to work at home when the weather is nice. All the kids think this is the neighborhood hangout plus my little one loves being outside so much. I'm thinking of doing daycare so I can earn money while being and playing with my kids plus some...

    I wanted to take my puppy to doggie day care and cage free boarding in our area. in order to be accepted, she had to have an appointment to meet and greet the other dogs that are usually there. So today, we go to day care and they start by letting her in a huge room with a little 12 week puppy...

    I'm wondering from those of you that currently have or have in the past provided childcare in your homes: what do you do during the summer? When your own children are out of school, do they get bummed that they have to hang out with younger kids? How did you do activities with all of them? TIA

    I will start watching a little girl for a couple of months the week after next. She is 2. What would you give her as lunches and snacks? I'm having a brain fart on what 2 yo should eat. I know nothing she can choke on. Any ideas on what to feed her? I think I'll get her some gerber graduate...

    Don't know if this is where it belongs, but has anyone gone about watching children from home for pay? I'm interested in taking in one baby either part-time or for a teacher so I can have summers off and attend to my own children then. Is it acceptable to place an add in schools somewhere to...

    Just wondering what everyone's personal experience has been with it. When I was growing up I had my grandmother and my aunt available to babysit for me, so I never went to daycare myself although both my parents worked. DH's parents worked opposite shifts - I guess they tried daycare for a few...

    I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with this. We're expecting in October (duh - see ticker below!) and I plan on going back to work in Jan. We will be putting our child in daycare. My company offers the option of a Daycare FSA - I can put in $5,000 per year. The money comes out...

    So, as you may know I got a job! So the next thing on my agenda was to find a reputable daycare for ds. I did my research and found a daycare that has been open longer than I've been alive, no DHS complaints, no BBB complaints, teachers have been there forever, etc. Only problem was it would...

    I will be leaving my job soon to be a stay at home mom. DH and I are thinking about earning some extra money by me watching a few children in our home during the day. I would like tips on how to start. I will be taking CPR and first aid this weekend (we have to do it for our adoption). Do...

    I have been waffling and doing the things I need to do to get set up to be a daycare provider. One minute I think of the things I love to do with kids. All those cuddle moments etc. and I am motivated. I think about how little it pays and I think--what the heck do I want to do that for. Then I...

    Two thumbs up for this movie. Its a great movie for the whole family with lots of laughs and a total change in Eddie Murphy's style of movie. A great movie that would probably not be a movie one would want to spend their $$ on to see at a theatre. But renting it and watching with the...

    Dear Dollar Stretcher, Why do people advocate Flexible Spending Accounts? Unless you are sure you will use the total amount in one year it is NOT a good idea. With flexible spending accounts you lose the money you don't use at the end of the year. I have never understood this since it is the...
