  • I'm in the exact same predicament as you due to the economy. I too have a 3year old & 11mos. However, I'm not going to return to work yet. My 11mos. is still to young. I hate the idea of him with a day care provider & not me. She'll get to see all the 1st's & not me. So I keep saying to my husband lets keep sacrificing until he's older.

  • Honestly, you're income will probably only cover daycare so you should talk to your husband about that.

  • I was also thinking the children grow up so quickly anyway & before you know it they will be in 1st grade. This time of being close to our chiis way to precious to loose.

  • Aww I'm sorry to hear that you and your husband aren't on the same page about this. That makes things pretty difficult! Let him know that you are working everyday to provide a home for him and your kids, and raising them is best done by their mommy.
    Clip coupons, budget, skimp wherever you're able. You'll make due, and your kids won't miss out on all the fun time with their mommy that they deserve.
