Well, you KNOW I agree!

I also wanted to add that there should NEVER be a sibling discount. Two kids cost you the same to provide care whether related or not.

And, in fact, siblings are a higher risk category in daycare than two unrelated kids. Because if they decide to leave a bigger chunk of your income is a stake until you can fill their spots.
