Got Pre-Schoolers ? Babysitting Swapping is Fantastic !

I have 3 children, one of which is a very active 16 month old toddler/runner. For months, another home mom and I have been talking about trading babysitting. Well, we finally started it 2 weeks ago.

I take my Jonathan to her house on Tuesdays from 10am - 4pm and she brings her Emma to my house on Thursdays from 10am - 4pm. It has been FANTASTIC ! I am all on with toddlerland and chaos and fun for one day. Then I am all off and able to get amazing things accomplished in the 6 hours I am toddler-free.

Guess what? It's an even trade because we are moms on a budget. We feel like total SuperMoms flying around the house getting a million things done from doing laundry, doing dishes, washing floors, running a few errands, running a lot of errands, sitting down and having a glorious and wonderful and peaceful lunch, the possibilities are endless !

I love all of my kids, I love my toddler, I couldn't imagine life without them. But you know what to have 6 kid-free hours a week, during the day is just wonderful and glorious and makes me love my kids even more when I see them again ! Sometimes, we just need space to breath.
