mrs TTs and I wrestling with this at the mo. 2 daughters.. 10yrs ( very sensible, quiet) 7yrs ( less quiet sensible)
mrs tts has to change her hours at work (every little helps..)
it ll cost 150 pcm for childcare for the three pickups and care till 5.30 ..
do we take it and cough up or do we let the eldest have a key and walk the 200yds ( including crossing an A road , that often has a crossing patrol) and have the youngest kept in childcare till one of us gets home circa 5.30
