Helps You Spend More Time With Your Children

by Dagmar Bleasdale on January 4, 2016

Do you wish you had more time to spend with your children?

I work from home, so I’m here when Landon gets home from school, yet I still wish I had more time to spend with him.

These pictures were taken two years ago — and I can’t believe Landon turned 9 years old in October.

He was so little then! I remember this day well, when we spent time at our favorite local farm. Landon has practically grown up on this orange tractor — and way too fast.

Are you a working parent who would love to spend more time with your children — but you get home late, and on the weekends you are busy cleaning the house, running errands, or taking care of a family member?

Then I want to encourage you to take a look at

You might already know about them — I’m sure you’ve seen their commercials.

I actually used their website to find a bilingual babysitter for Landon when he was about four years old.

I did find a lovely young woman who spoke English as well as German through, and she helped us out until she left for college. And then her sister came over to play with Landon for several months.

You can find qualified babysitters and nannies though — but you can also find senior care as well as cleaning help, someone who can train your dog, and even event help.

If I were a parent working outside the home, those are the kinds of services I would take advantage of.
