Been there, done that! In terms of sanity, go for the better hours. No
amount of money will keep you from missing your family and you’ll begin
to resent your employers, your job and even the kids you’re caring for
even though you know it isn’t their fault.
on another note…look for catholic charities in your area (don’t have
to be catholic) and they can set you up with day care in your own home.
this way,. you’re there for your own kids which is nice…especially if
they’re younger and one gets sick. no missed work!
