My wife and I both work part time during the school year, but right now we are full time in preparing for and delivering teacher in-service training at our schools. This, coupled with our daughter’s preschool not starting for a few weeks, puts us in a childcare bind.
Grandma to the rescue!
My mom has arrived to help out for the next three weeks, and it is an indescribable relief to have her here. The kids flourish in her care, she enjoys being with them, and my wife and I are freed up to do our jobs without feeling like we are totally abandoning our children.
