We've also been thinking about trying out a nanny share. I would be
interested in participating in a separate group...maybe a yahoo group? I was
thinking about starting one anyway for graduate student parents to share
solutions and issues that affect us and also as a forum for setting up
playdates and nanny shares etc. I think this current list-serv is great, and
I always read the posts but for some reason don't find myself posting to it
very much...
