that's difference - with an "e" :)


Inspired by a post the other day, I think from peteynjoeysmom, about contracting out the "drudge work" of childcare and housework.


Do you think there's a big difference between "childcare" and "parenting", and if so, what is it?

I don't think they're the same at all, which is why I've never agreed with the argument that daycares "raise" children.

"I am THRILLED that you and your family have the availability/opportunity/experience of being able to stagger *your* schedules to allow only for a 35 day work week for *your* nanny.

Liza's on her fifth or sixths snow day today - I lose track -- she's had about 4-5 delays in there too since Thanksgiving -- our twenty third storm hit last night since thanksgiving -we're on track to be the snowiest winter in NH history...sigh...
