My daugher is temporarily in vacation care 2 days a week. Otherwise it's me looking after both kids, same as always. It's harder than usual in some ways because many of the usual activities I take them to shut down over the holidays. On the other hand, sometimes there are special school holiday activities on at the library and other places.
Me. I have a few extras when others need it (the help). I think the stay at home mums should help the working mums. It makes for a good community, and you get to know your kids friends very well. It takes a village and all that...
I don't have kids, but my parents found various solutions to suit me depending what age I was. When I was young I had a nanny, then when I got a bit older my mum dropped me off at play scheme on the way to work, and then in my early teens I went to a sports club. After that I was old enough to stay at home by myself.
I'm a teacher so I get time off during holidays, however since my children are not school age I still pay for their child care during my holidays. Some days I'll send them to care in the holidays as I still have planning and perpetration to do which is made difficult with two rug rats under my feet.
being a single mum and having my child in family daycare, I took one week off each holiday to spend time with my son and loved taking him on adventures, indoor playhouses and Serpentine farm which was great for kids.
