I am basically just looking to find someone who loves kids and can do a good job. I am planning to have play dates set for the kids and carpools for preschool so that the person willing to help will have limited demands placed on them. We are going to Mexico for Justin's Club trip. I learned on last year's trip (which my AMAZING Aunt Barbara helped us out for) that it is very frowned upon by the higher-ups if an employee attends without his spouse, or --heaven forbid--if he were to not go at all. Apple has a "President's Club" trip each year that is awarded as a prize for employees who reach beyond a certain percentage of their quota and the trip is where everyone networks and hob-nobs and gets to know one another (hooray for Justin making it two years in a row!!). There are meetings and award ceremonies that are important to attend, so it turns out we can't just not go.
Anyway, I'm hoping that one of my friends out there in cyber world will have a suggestion for me. Do any of you have a friend, relative, etc. who you think wants to come to Austin for 5 days? I realize this is a long shot but as I mentioned, I'm desperate. Any ideas?
