We recently met up with the folks at Tripster, and we’re excited to introduce Baltimore Fishbowl readers to this fun, creative and engaging option for drop-off child care.  Tripster can be the lifesaver you need when a holiday, professional day or vacation day shows up on the school calendar and you have to work! Even on those days when you’re home and don’t have the time to engage your children, you don’t have to park them in front of a video game console or TV. Tripster will give them a day filled with fun, interesting activities.  With many schools closing  NEXT WEEK for the Jewish holiday, now’s the time to learn more!  Check out the launch event Tripster has planned, and read more about the company and its amazing proprietor, who is a working mom herself and understands the need for occasional child care.   Here’s a note from owner, Jamie Seward:
