A few more arms for mom!

I run a daycare from my home.  This means I have to not only take calls, but lead in the childrens learning at the same time.  Most moms are great at doing more than one thing at a time, but it would be nice if we could add a few arms to help juggle the demands of the day.  For me specifically, the hardest thing to do is to answer business/client calls while changing diapers/creating art/feeding a baby/ or putting together a puzzle.  What would really help would be if I could duplicate my cell so that while one charges, another that preferable has a hands free set, could be near by for me to answer without dropping everything.  

Don't you love it when someone else has your same issue and happens to work it out to create a solution?  Well VTech seems to have found a way to help me out.   VTech first made its market debut in 1976 and since then has become one of the top three competitors for cordless communication in the United States. It is called the DS6670-6C.  This is a phone that allows for you to connect not one but two different cell phones to 5 headsets, including a handsfree set which is perfect for my particular issue.  Now I can charge my cell and have a handset in each room that we use, plus the hands free set means I won't miss a client call while making lunch, feeding a baby, preparing bottles/sippies, and changing diapers.  I can set up both my husband and my number to this system and we can see who is being called.  This way when he is out lifting in the garage I don't have to stop the dishes I'm washing, dry my hands, find his phone and run it out to him preferable before the call is missed.  

It also helps in homes that have dead spots or places where you don't get a good connection or signal.  Just station your cell in the place where it gets the best signal and then put one of these handsets where you need it and you'll get full connections where you need it and not where your phone decides it works best.
