Becky Morgan: Unfortunately the beauty school does not have day care, I checked into that the day I talked to the admissions director.

NikitaShera: Originally I was thinking of housecleaning because that would allow me to pretty much set my own hours and days because I'd need something flexible. The call I got from the tattoo shop was a little unexpected. I was offered a job there about 2 years ago, the owner talked to me about it the day after I got one of my tattoos. She wanted to train me to be a piercer, which, I would have LOVED!!! (can't express that to do, but, hubby's school schedule was more hectic at that point, and, my daughter hadn't begun school yet, and, my mom was still working so I had no one to watch the kids. Unfortunately, I had to decline the offer. Then, about 6 months ago, I called the owner to see if she needed any help since my mom was no longer working, my daughter was in school, and, hubby was going to school only 2 nights a week instead of 3. But, she didn't have any positions available's pretty much been one of those things where if she has something, I'm the first person she calls but sadly, we haven't been able to work it out yet. I know there's always the possibility of working there, but, the timing has just been off. I'd really like to do something either from home, or, something like housecleaning or babysitting (actually, I'd rather babysit than I really, really wish I could put my photography and graphic design skills to use to make money, but no luck on those ends either.

Plantgoddess+: Yeah, housecleaning is kind of a last resort for me. It's not that I think down upon it, I know it's a great way to make some extra cash, and, it's how my mom helped support my dad's income when I was a kid, but, I just really don't like cleaning do what I have to do at home, but, I don't really go above and, if I have to, I have to. I think I'd rather do yard work too, I MUCH prefer being outside!

kristaj: Now that's a thought! I don't know why I never thought of babysitting teachers kids. My daughter's kindergarten teacher had a baby this past April and she's still teaching, she came back 10 days before the school year was'll talk to her once school starts, or see if any other teachers need babysitters!

After school care for working parents is so hard to come by. The other secretary in my office is always in a bind trying to find some one to take care of her kids (picking up from school, too) between 3 and 6. Unimaginable as it seems, there are still schools in our area that don't have latchkey programs. You might consider something like that.
