  • Right now we are about to start paying 125 each for my 2 and 3 year old for PART time daycare at a center. I don't know if we are going to be able to swing that for long! That's 125 a week.

  • We pay 2k a month for 4 kids part time.

  • 100 buck a month for my girls 11 & 4 but only 3 days a week because I only work 3 days a week and the person who watches our girls is none other than grandma. She's awesome and really didn't ask us to pay her anything but we wanted to give her something for her time. She is retired and doesn't have to do it just because she's grandma, she does it because she knows how expensive day care is and doesn't think I should work just to pay the sitter - that my money should go to help provide for the family.

    I've been told by my friends who have to send their kids to day care that I'm lucky and I tell them all the time that I'm blessed. Love Ya Mum - Thanks!!!
