Do you participate in child care cooperatives?

I exchanged baby sitting service with my neighbors, friends and family. It is a good feeling to help other families in times of need, especially when they have little ones. You can hear many families in the bay area struggling with high cost of babysitting, day care and preschools/day care.

I was fortunate that I was able to connect with other friends whose children are of the same age as my children. It takes a lot of money management to care for young ones. My now 20 yr old told me that having children is very expensive. I told him, not that expensive as I stayed home and had them with midwives, breastfed them and all the holistic healing ways I employed when ever their bodies needed more care.

Fortunately the only medical expense is the dental expense and eye glasses.

How did you manage with your money and budget when you have little children in the bay area? Please share and email them to or comment on this blog.
