Recent Family Photo (Au Pair Included)

Since we brought our first au pair last summer I have received nearly constant questions about the experience. So today, I am sharing my thoughts on all types of childcare arrangements (including daycare, family care, nannies, nanny share, etc.) and how we came to our decision to use an au pair.

In this episode, I'll also speak more about my experience with the au pair program. What questions do you have?
