Available Child Care

Thursday, 22 March 2007 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

Sometimes, you see signs in the street for a local handyman. Around Xmas here, you see signs for people who can be paid to hang your holiday lights. And you probably see signs for weight loss and work-at-home schemes.

How about a sign for child care? I see signs around town, nailed to telephone poles, and all they say is "CHILD CARE" and a phone number underneath that.

Who calls that number? Who considers that a good solution for needing care for a child? Who bypasses friends, family, babysitters, and day care centres to call that number?

    Someone who has burned all their bridges with friends, family, babysitters and has no job, therefore no co-workers and little, if any money. Who would such a person be? Someone on DRUGS and well on their way to losing custody of their child or worse yet, children. Who else?

    A desperate parent who’s every option for available care has been exhausted. I found one of Brandon’s best sitters ever from the bulletin board at Kroger. Of course, I checked her out thoroughly, and met with her a few times before I left my child there, but in the end, it worked out very well!
    I always wonder who calls those “Lose 30LBS in 30 days” signs. And HOW CAN THEY sell “NEW, IN THE PLASTIC, PILLOW-TOP MATTRESS SETS, QUEEN SIZE, $299″??? Isn’t that like, wayyy too cheap?
