Who else has this issue? What do you do? This is a huge issue for us. Getting child care for that short time frame is a mess. It is to short for some people, not enough lead time for others and too long for me to stay home and be that late for work. I need to make arrangements with other moms at the kids school, but then there is the getting on the bus issue. We simply do not live that close to anyone. I can't afford to be that late, DH can't take off any more time, and the in-laws (our usual sitters) are either working tomorrow too or (grandpa) too old to get around in this snow...... One hour I can manage - two hours - a nightmare!
