I need to find childcare for the kiddos for fall. I really, really hate this part. So, I sent an e-mail to almost everyone I know:
I need to find child care for the fall for Gabriel (3.5) and Maggie (10 months). So, I'm writing to see if anyone knows anyone who can help me out. It needs to be good, affordable, positive/attachment approach, cloth diapering & breast feeding friendly, preferably in walking or biking distance.

It'd be for Monday & Wednesday afternoon for both kids and either Tuesday & Thursday morning for Maggie only, or Thursday all day, w/Maggie only in the a.m. and (approximately) every other Friday.  Willingness to pick Gabriel up from preschool (in Depot Town) would also be nice. To start at the end of this month.

I'm sending this to anyone who's e-mail I have who might know people in the vicinity.
Anyone got any leads? Plleeeaassee???

Ken told me it was too restrictive; that it'd scare everyone off. But I just want to be specific. So potential care providers know where I'm coming from.

I really, really hate looking for childcare. I hate that I have to have it. I want to work. But I don't want to give my kids away, to miss so much of the day that they spend learning and growing and being. But then, when I'm here, at home alone with them I'm so often so very overwhelmed that I don't know where to begin or what to do with myself and I get nothing done, barely get the kids clean & fed and don't take care of myself let alone maintain any kind of home or pay the bills or anything like that.

Well, next week we go on vacation. Maybe that'll help?
