i travel to help out my grandmother ever 6-8 weeks up in NY. most of the time i have my mom or DH or sister with me to wrangle the twins so that i can help my grandmother with her issues. If i care for the twins myself, like i do during the day at home, i get nothing done and the trip is a waste of time. my grandmother is no real help with them and they are so blissfully distracting to her that i can't get to focus on paperwork or tasks when she would rather be playing with them.

 

so i need childcare, in NY, for just an occasional week here and there, that can deal with 13 month twins. yeah I'm not asking for much eyesroll.gif   any ideas?

I know a lot of Universities have boards with job listings and if its near/around NYC I have a lot of recommendations. :)

I will ask my friends in the area if they have any recommendations.. might also be worth looking at agencies depending on your budget.
