We've been exploring childcare options and thinking about trying to arrange
a nanny share as well (our son will be 9 months in Sept). I don't know how
many people on the list are considering something like this - would it make
sense to set up a forum (separate email list? google spreadsheet?) or even a
meeting to get people together and see if there are matches to be made? I'd
love to hear from people who are interested.
Best,
Erica
