Hi R.~
Have you considered watching another chld or two in your own home? My SIl used to do this when my niece was little. It worked out so well for them because my niece was an only child and the built in socialization really benefited her as well.

Good luck~

What did you do before you stayed at home?

I would start with that... and start looking for jobs that fit that skill set and are from home.

Some companies will let you work at home part-time and in the office part time.

Or you could try a gym with child care. Not sure, but it seems like they'd give folks that worked there a discount on child care and she'd be right there if she needed you.

I have a friend that is a Mary Kay Consultant. If you are interested in helping others with their skincare/makeup, that sort of thing. I also know someone who does Arbonne and Creative Memories.

I've done Pre-Paid Legal and that helped out with some bills.

Any of the home business can be great. A lot of is your motivation and how much time/energy and money sometimes you want to put into it.

If you would like some contact names, I can give them to you. Let me know if you are interested in Mary Kay, Arbonne, Creative Memories or Pre-Paid Legal.

I've heard the Medical Transcriptionist make good money and you can do it from home. You do have to go thru training. I checked into it and it wasn't for me due to my disability. You might be the perfect one for that.

I work for Easter Seals and they need more Job Coaches. It is part time and you are on-call. It wouldn't be steady money like work each day. However, you might do this with something else going on at home. Let me know if you want more info. Good Luck

Well, I will say that until the end of the month there is a small up front cost of one dollar. If you and your daughter take a bath, brush your teeth, clean your house etc. then I would love to talk with you. We educate parents on how important it is to get toxins out of the home. And then I show them how to switch stores and shop healthy. Check it out at tx.parentsunited.com or respond with your contact information and I would be glad to get with you. I love working with moms!

Have you heard of Scentsy "Authentic Wickless Candle"? Extremely safe w/ no wick, soot, lead, or flame.

Our warmers are heated by a 25-watt light bulb in a 2-piece warmer, our candle bars are made of a soft wax packed full of incredible scents. With a burn time of 60-80 hours per Scentsy bar (and sometimes more), over 80 scents to choose from, a wonderful selection of warmers, plus car candles and room sprays, there's something for everyone.

Interested in joining my team? Consider this: By the middle of May 2008, we sold over 1.5 million worth of warmers, bars, room sprays, and car candles. That's 495% more than during the same time period in May 2007. That's AMAZING! We also added 698 Consultants in this time period. THAT'S 612% MORE THAN WE HAD JOINED DURING THE SAME TIME PERIOD IN MAY 2007! If you are considering a home business, this is a great opportunity for you to get in early with a company that I believe will become a household name! Ask me about MY SPECIAL for anyone interested in BECOMING a Scentsy Consultant in the month of July!

Have a Scent-Sational Day!
