Though TcLP has nothing to do with childcare, the relationship between the main guy and main girl have a similar feel. I think it has something to do with the girl being responsible for her age and the guy being almost perfect husband material.

I read both of these and LOVE THEM, So in Love So Life, and Lonely Planet, they both have younger female and older male. Both girls are trying to make their way through high school, while in Tsubaki-chou Lonely Planet, our protaginst is helping her father in debt. In love so life, both parents are already deceased and she is wanting to acheive her dream of being a day care helper. Both males act as support and can be seen as a bit soft at times, however in lonely planet, our lead male can come off as rude, and has a tougher time with romance than in Love so Life where the lead male mainly struggles due to the nature of the work like relationship.

They both have an older male and younger female romance. Also the girl works for the man and the guy is very lazy and untidy

mielconejo mielconejo says...

Both mangas are created by the same artist, and have the same strong female character. They both realise they are falling slowly in love with an older guy who is close to them, and worries about them. 

It has the very same feel of first love, and developing one's feelings and coming of age about them. 

It also switches from time to time from the perspective of the female character to that of the male's.

Both stories involve high school girls who for one reason or the other end up moving in with the male lead who looks out for them and takes care of them (at home and with other life troubles). There's also an age gap between the couples with the male leads being older than their female counterpart. Both romances are sweet and build up over time. Wholesome vibes from both stories.

If you liked Lonely Planet or  the Lady and her Butler, you may like the other because it has similar themes. Both include a character struggling with finances and working in the house of their employers.

These two are of my all time favourite romance manga with no problematic situations or misunderstandings except for some, but I'll let these slide as they are done well.. Both have age gap too..

Sekihan-chan to Sumomo-kun

Sekihan-chan to Sumomo-kun

Watari Maika has been in and out of hospital since she was little, and consequently missed out on most of her school life. Now about to start high school, she is determined to fit in with her new classmates and start from scratch with a high school debut, but manages only a short stay before she again falls ill and is forced to stay home. Six months pass before she is able to return, just in time to visit the cultural festival, and as she'd feared, none of her classmates remember her ever having been there - exept for a rather tall, pretty maid with long hair she does not recognize. Watari is delighted to have found someone who remembers her, and immediately pleads for friendship - and now Shun Momoi has missed the timing to let the girl he fell in love with at first sight know who he is out of uniform.
