Babysitting Swap

Though we decided to pull the boys out of preschool for this semester (because we couldn't afford it), we were going to need childcare for the days that I would be working. We hired a babysitter and planned to pay her around $400 a month (we believe in paying our sitters well). About a week ago, however, my friend Alisha (who was also a Graduate Assistant at Liberty and is now an adjunct professor at LU AND also has two boys, ages 4 and almost 2) suggested that we "barter our children" or do a babysitting swap. So, I am now watching her youngest son on Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 11:30-3pm and she is watching my boys on Tuesday and Thursday from 11:30-5pm.

I think our boys are wearing each other out with so much playing! I think they are having a blast. Plus the best part of the deal that that we both have free childcare for the semester!!! So, that extra $400? Going into the new car fund. :)
