Help is on the way!
On a lark, I put an ad on craig's list looking for a mother's helper. I don't really want to hire someone I don't know, I'd rather hire someone from church or who is recommended to me through someone I know. So I made it a very specific ad, added that I'd prefer a student, even a high schooler, that it's not for all that many hours a week, and this morning: 7 responses. Woohoo! The one I'm leaning towards is the 13 year old girl who is part of a mentoring program at a DC school, who is trying to save money for a competition. My second favorite is the 19 year old college freshman who asked if males count as mother's helpers because he's interested. Fingers crossed someone works out!
