The “care-trade”

One word, “Care-trade”.

(E. and N.C. enjoying the beach while I watched them both.)

A girlfriend and I have girls the same age. We both are creatives who work from home and are struggling to find time to work with our little bundles of energy around the house. So I suggested we do a care-trade. No money exchanged, two days a week (that’s the goal, right now its just one) we drop our baby off at the others house for a few hours, each person takes a a turn with both girls. Then, the free mom goes home and works! It’s genius and free. I painted uninterrupted without a care in the world for the first time in FOREVER. I may have cried some tears of joy.

Make a friend, and do it. It’s good for you. It’s good for your kids. It’s good for your friends.
