SO, our daycare bill = our mortgage. I keep joking with MH that we could have had a fabulous vacation home the past few years and we never knew it.
I feel you! I cannot wait until August when the Au Pair starts. We will have her living with us, lease her a car, pay for her cell phone and it will still be LESS than what we are paying to send the twins to day care. Like $10,000 a year less. Day care is just way too expensive.
My friend has 3 kids and has an au pair living with them and they are saving thousands too! If I had a bigger house, I would definitely do it. But DNW to share a bathroom with my au pair. haha.
lola, we are using Cul.tural Ca.re. They were great helping us through the matching process. DH has a bunch of coworkers that have used them successfully over the years, so we are hoping to have the same luck. The girl we matched with seems great so far. We've been Skyping and emailing almost weekly since January.
Awesome, thank you! We've discussed this before. Maybe when there's another kiddo around.
