Hi mamas, My wife and I are expecting a baby girl very soon and she found out recently that she is being laid off on our due date. Our original plan was to share child care between us and she was going to be able to take our daughter to work because the company she worked for was very family friendly (but as we have learned not so financially stable!!). We are expecting a job offer on Friday (checking references and CORI today!!!) and so now we need to re-evaluate our child care options. We believe strongly that socialization is important for kids, but after years of foster care haven't had the best experiences with home or center based day care centers. Especially for pre-talkers who can't tell us what happens during their day. So we are trying to go in a different direction:) We would love to find a SAHM who would be willing to babysit for 4-5 hours 4 afternoons a week. We won't have an exact scheudle until the offer is made and negotiations are finished, but are hoping to have quite a bit of flexibility between us. The perfect mama (or stay at home dad I suppose:) would: *believe in good food, gentle dicipline, clear boundaries, and encouraging exploration *have kids that would be generally welcoming to a small baby (obviously we know there will be an adjustment peroid!) *be willing to work with us around feeding pumped milk (storing and preparing properly) *have similar beliefs about child rearing (this will be a longer conversation). Please message me if you have any interest in talking more about this or if you know someone who might be a good fit. Thanks moms! nicole
