It’s been a bit of a grey day here, in more ways than just the weather. I have really been feeling the separation from my family after just spending a lot of time with them over the Christmas break.
As we don’t live anywhere near our family I have, for a long time, been thinking of starting a babysitting circle in our local area and found this fantastic web resource: Baby Sitter Circle . I thought it would be great to start this with a group of friends to allow us (me + husband) to have some time out in the evenings when the kids are in bed. Or even just an hour or two in the day to get a bit of shopping done on my own, or even to clean the kitchen floor (an impossible task with two smalls running around).
Are any of you in a babysitting circle? Do you ever share child minding dutys with your friends?
