  •  I didn't have a day without my son until he was (18+ / 0-)

    two.  We couldn't afford babysitters and for some reason my relatives and friends never offered. When koosah kid was two, my mother had to have a big all-day surgery.  I had to break open the piggybank and hire a niece to watch him for the day.

    Check with your pediatrician...some communities have a co-op where parents trade daycare for each other.  It might mean you lose an entire day when it's your turn to be "on duty," but you get an entire day or two to yourself, as well. Or an hour or two each day...however it works out.  

    The one in my community actually has a facility that parents can use.  It's all baby-proofed and has donated toys, etc.  It's not just parking your child in front of someone else's TV.      

    Metaphors be with you.
