.... What?!

1) Free Rent Free Rent Lakeaway Area (lil household duties & childcare) (Austin)
My son is 8mos. My Wife bailed, he stays with me two-three nights a week. I also need just basic help around the house. I love to cook and hope you do too. Really looking for a roomate but figured I could help someone who can help me. Garage included, private room, guest bathroom and this is a nice home.. I'm a cool guy, just didn't know my girlfriend well enough before I married her. We do have a great kid which is easy to love and is well behaved. He just smiles and laughs all the time. And cute like his dad. There's no drama over here and hope you won't bring any. It stays pretty quiet around here, but I'm not a prude. We can party a bit if you like. Summer is fun around here and hope you like the lake. Charlos n Charlie's in down the street and Iguana Grill is across the street. Let me know what question you have and we can discuss the details. Thank you kindly, Marshall Leonard 939-**** Please be at least around my age. 31 Just want to have something in common..

But she is my favorite person in the whole entire world.I'm attaching pictures of her, and would like for you to include some of you or just one. Doesn't matter. Just want to establish the connection and see who we're working with. I'm looking for someone who (of course) is going to be fast with replies, since I'll be on the go. If you are responsible, reliable, and have a soft and warm heart - that's great. Just let me know a little bit about yourself please. And also let me know your rates.

5) Free Child Care (Joliet)
Hello, Mother's & Father's, I just wanted to let you know that I can watch your baby/toddler/child here at my house in Joliet for one day.(Maybe more if needed) Rather than you leave them alone...I will care for them here. If you have to do something important, like go to an interview, court,or to the DHS office, somewhere that will help you in your situation...I can watch them. This is coming from a mother of three & I've been there. Alone & desperate with no support system or not a single family member or friend in town. But I got myself UP on my feet because one beautiful woman did the same for me. I couldn't afford not even $5 for an hour to watch my children before...... But 5 years later & here I am today. I stay at home mother, taking college online classes & happily blessed.Please be reasonable with time as I'm doing this to help you out. Email me and let me know how I can help. I'll be glad to help rather than leaving your little one/ones alone at home. Please don't do that. Thank you & please ladies & gentlemen do not flag this. I'm just a very humble, peaceful woman who cares enough to make a difference, if it means doing this. Thank you.

Hello, We live in west San Jose, by Lawrence Expressway and Saratoga Ave, very close to Westgate mall. I have a one year old daughter.

I can provide all supply for my baby. Please email me or call me at 408-859-**** or 408-366-**** if you are interested. Thanks for your consideration.

I need someone to make dinner, do minor housework (clean up our morning mess), get the children to do their homework and help them if necessary. I plan on taking one night class a week starting in April that may go late. One night a week will include putting them to bed. There are four boys, one diagnosed with PDD, NOS, and the other three with ADD. They all take medication for symptoms, however, by evening hours medications are wearing off. I can afford to pay 9.00 an hour. For the most part the children amuse themselves. They are all boys ages 10,9,7, and 6. We live in Orland Park, close to the mall. Please let me know if you are interested or have questions. Thank you, Peggy pklutcharch@****

37) Looking for Nanny/Babysitter during the day (Peccole Ranch)
We live in the Peccole Ranch/Lakes area in a two bedroom apartment. We have 2 1/2 yr. old twins (a boy and girl) who are really cute and pretty easy to take care of. The hours would be 9 to 3 pm, Tues through Sat mostly. The schedule can be flexible on the days if you need a day off for something. Mom works days 9 to 5 and Dad works nights 8 to 4. So the problem lies in the fact that Dad is not getting enough sleep. The kids are getting to that age where they like to explore and get into trouble. Nothing is in cement on the hours, its just a rough idea. We can be really flexible. Dad will be home while your there if you run into any trouble, just need someone to watch them, play with them and feed them lunch. Just need to get more sleep! Let us know what you think and your rates. The hours mentioned would equal out to 30 hours a week. We are looking to pay around $200 a week for your time. Thanks......Robert & Rosemary

80 dollars for 45 hours a week???? are you crazy? That is less than 2 dollars an hour! what are you going to be doing for two dollars an hour? sitting them in front of a tv while you go do whatever? come on! what person in their right mind would agree to that? Maybe I am just misjudging your post, but I firmly believe that, when it comes to childcare (as with anything), YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! Hopefully you are just undervaluing yourself or just don't know any better or can't do simple math... but i would never leave my baby with you.

I disagree. I currently pay $80 per week for my child and he receives awesome care. He is 2 and knows all his letters, numbers, and colors and is currently potty training. That's not to say everyone is great, maybe I'm lucky. Some people don't do this for the money completely. Maybe they have a passion for children, maybe they are retired and this is secondary income and they are just trying to do a service to their community. The only thing I can say is do your reserach no matter what any one charges. My son went to a place where we paid $120 per week and few months later the facility was brought up on charges for fracturing an infants skull. Price doesn't matter, research does.

Hi, I just re-read my post about the $80 per week, and it sounded a lot harsher than I intended. Can we chalk it up to a midol moment? :) I only meant to say that I think that childcare is a undervalued field, and I believe that as a child care provider, you need to not under value yourself. Your job is similar to that of a teacher. You are responsible for someone's life. And that position demands respect and proper compensation.You need to be paid accordingly. This is from some one who used to be a nanny. I think at I am frustrated from my own nanny search. I have 3 year old autistic son, and my nanny recently went to med school. I find myself having trouble finding a nanny that is reputable, or at least not crazy. :) look at some of the responses I got to an ad that I placed. "I AM EXCITED TO BE YOUR NANNY! I CAN'T WAIT TO START! I CAN TEACH HIM HOW TO DO HIS NAILS. AND TEACH HIM ABOUT GIRLS! WE CAN WATCH SEX IN THE CITY TOGETHER! PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHEN I CAN START! CALL ME @ ******. " or =0 A"This email is about your post on craigslist.I would prefer to have him come to my house when i sit." me- [ok] "I have been wanting to sit ever since my son died......." me- [Wow.. I am so sorry. Do you mind if I ask what happened?] "Shaken baby syndrome. My nephew got jealous of him on night." me- [..... what happened to your nephew?] "Nothing. The doctor ust said that he has anger management issues.... but ever since he came to live with us, he has been better. He just gets so jealous of new people." or "I saw your ad about your son. my little brother was autistic. All autistic kids just need a little discipline. When my brother was bad, we would spray him with water and put him in a corner. he stopped crying after an hour or so." or "I really good with autristic [real spelling] kids. I bye dem some paints and crayons and they are fine." me- [ he is autistic...] "you should tend to that. Autrists make a lot of money once they get famous." me- [ he is AUTISTIC.... he has Asperger syndrome.] "what is dat?" me- [ a pyschological disorder] " i ain't got time for no retards or pyschos. CLICK" Also, Would anyone be interested in nannying for a child with asperger syndrome? He is a wonderful, affectionate child, and just needs some one with patience who can give him the attention that he needs. Pay is commensurate with experience. $ differentials for first aid training and CPR certification. $ differentials for experience with special needs children Spanish speaking a huge plus.

1.) Is using his child to find a new girlfriend. Healthy!
29.) When did food and drinks become a substitute for pay? I'm not that hungry!
32.) $9 an hour to deal with 4 kids all with "issues." Nice!

And #13? No one lives on Saratoga Ave. if they can only afford $20/day for childcare.
