20 dollar a week increase per child. It adds up.

What would it cost to have someone for a few hours each afternoon instead? When my mom moved her business outside the home we had a nanny/housekeeper who was there when we got home from school (or I guess picked my sister up from school since she was too little to ride the bus) and stayed til early eve, when either my mom or dad got home. She also did some light housekeeping/cooking. My parents didn't have much money when we were growing up either. Although I'm not sure if that would work if your youngest isn't in a regular school yet. I guess he still has a little while to go til kindergarten, right? Also, we burned through those poor housekeeper/nannies pretty quick because we were awful, terrible children.
