Much needed break
I haven't gotten to that point yet- my daughter is only 2. But I'm wondering if you ever get a break- maybe on a weekly or monthly basis? Is there anyone else who can help- relative, friend, neighbor, church member? I know it's hard to find someone. (I absolutely dread when I need to find a babysitter for my daughter.) Also, do you have a UCP chapter nearby? They sometimes have respite programs for parents/caregivers. It's SO important that you take breaks so that you can keep giving/caring for him. Good luck! -Renee
