Babysitting Coop Coordinator
We moved to Boxborough in 2013 with our two kids, and a third on the way. We knew little of the area, knew very few people here, and had no family around. We had long commutes, and little time to explore. ABFN helped maximize that time, helping to navigate things like childcare options or veterinarians on the discussion boards; to organizing outings and events for our family to participate in; to helping organize time where it was easy to meet other moms and take some time for myself. About a year ago I joined one of the babysitting co-ops and was in awe that something like this existed. It’s been a saving grace. I’m looking forward to being part of the board and helping other families take advantage of this amazing aspect of ABFN too!
