Is your wife actively looking for a job in your district, which would really help with your situation now and going forward? If not, I suggest that she continue to do that so that when something does come up, she can make the move.In the meantime, I would suggest continuing to look for after school care where someone can come to your house and watch the girls til your wife gets home. I imagine you're not using the after school program for more than an hour or so each day, and so for you, that would make it expensive even though it's a pretty good rate. The girl next door is the ideal babysitter. However, she's so involved at school she isn't available to babysit very often, and not after school.You sure that she wouldn't be willing to do this for you if the price was right? What if you paid her $20 per day for what is probably an hour til your wife gets home? That's good money for her, and would be an $82/week savings for you, so everyone would win.My DD used to babysit in the neighborhood when she was in high school, and she would rearrange her schedule after school for certain clients because they paid her really well. And if your neighbor is in high school, she probably could use the money towards her college savings.You have nothing to lose in asking, and even if she cannot do it, you could ask if she has a friend who may be interested.
