Our family situation calls for a very particular set of skills. We need the Navy SEALS version of babysitters. And I don’t know another mother with a child with special needs who doesn’t feel the same. We already get less free time, much less time away without worry over our children’s safety.
We can’t afford to hand out freebies.
It’s nothing personal.
It’s business, the business of running our family.
We need our people we trust. And so we keep them close.
