Hey guys and gals, got a question or two for you, maybe you can help me out here. I start my clinicals in January and I'm in the evening program, which means classes M 4-6p T 4-7p and WTh 4-10:30p. I have 3 children, ages 7, 9 and 7 months. The original thought behind going to night school was so my husband would be home to watch the kids. Now it looks like Uncle Sam may be deploying him to a foul desert location in the next few months and I need to prepare for the eventuality that I might have to get childcare for my angels.
How many of you have children and what do you do about childcare? I don't live near family, so that's out, unfortunately.
I am tossing a few ideas around, but I wanted to see what you folks did, so maybe you will have an idea I hadn't thought of. We aren't exactly rolling in money so it's not like I can just find Mrs. Doubtfire and say "Hey, I'll pay you 150 bucks a week to watch my kids so I can go to school!"
Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated here!!
