Default My life is over....

Ugh just when I think everything is falling into place......everything crashes and burns. I had to find someone to watch my son so I can work by monday because my boyfriend decided that he wasn't going to anymore. So I found this lady on craigs list and I met with her and we got the ball rolling and I was good to go. So then tonight(friday) I get home from work and check my e-mail only to get an e-mail from her saying that she can't do it now because her uncle has cancer so she has to go to him. I have 2 days to find someone else....or risk getting fired....and having no money at all. WTF am I supposed to do. I put an ad up tonight and everything....
okay I guess I just had to vent that to you guys

I'm sorry. I'd totally help you if I could.

I know something will turn up, just have hope.

Why can't your boyfriend watch him?

Certainly Las Vegas has licensed child care, check your phone book. Also call some of the churches in your neighborhood, they might have information on child care around you. Your child comes first don't leave him with someone not qualified, better to lose your job until you find the right person.

I agree with Bargoo. Be careful about who you leave your child with. The YWCA might have some child care resources. This is a temporary problem. Your child's safety and well being is paramount. It can be very hard to raise a child with limited support. Some unsolicited advice: consider living where you have more support. Your boyfriend's reliability is questionable it appears. If you have family and friends elsewhere.....Please consider your options with an eye to your child's stability.

Echoing what is stated above. Please let us know how things turn out. You might want to call local schools for advice.

Do you go to a church? If so, the secretary can give you a ton of names of teenagers that babysit. Or even if you don't go to a church...call around to some of them!

look up daycare in your area, see if they take drop ins - many do.

Also, look on craigs list for day cares taking drop ins.

I wouldn't suggest finding a babysitter off craigs list, it can be scary. however, I myself post adds on there, and have gotten a few jobs... so some tips for craigs list - avoid any posts in all caps, avoid teenagers, and people who post pictures tend to be more reliable. Also, search back a few days or weeks, people are still looking for jobs even if the posts are a few days old!

Ask you BF to help you find people

Try a local church as previously suggested.

Any colleges near by? If they have an early childhood education or elementary major - put up a flyer on their bulletin. I'm an early ed major myself, and we're always looking for jobs!

Yes, just hang in there..it could always be worse. Of course it seems like your world may be closing in. But there have been some wonderful suggestions and your child's well-being is most important! I wish you luck and hope it turns out. Have a some hope and faith:-)

A formal daycare that takes drop-ins might be too expensive for every day (you might make less than you spend), but might still be worth it for one day to keep from losing a job.

Gosh, with your thread title, I thought something had happened to your son. I'm so relieved.
