one gift-- I'd love to see the invite that spelled out these options, though!
Yeah... I think that you just have to literally be on top of him the whole time. You can't expect everyone to childproof.

Have you thought about temporarily cutting back on retirement contributions or otherwise reworking your budget to allow for more hours of childcare? Or housecleaning help? Or more convenience foods?

We should have discussed it but didn't. I don't know what her old employer was doing-- she mentioned that she wanted taxes witheld.
