Ok, I posted this in the money and work section too but I'd like to get as much feedback as possible.
My son is 4 months old, and I work full-time [usually like 45 hours/week] to keep up with the rent and the bills. My boyfriend also works 44 hours a week and we are just getting by. We make too much money for foodstamps or TANF but have NO leftover money for anything and I only see my son for TWO HOURS a day!!! We get up @ 9 and I have to drop him off at daycare by 11:30 and I don't get home from work until 11 and he's asleep by then, and we do it all over again. I feel like such a terrible mother and I wonder what he's thinking when I'm never there...I guess this is just more of a vent than a question, but what to you think about my situation?

You aren't a terrible mom...you are a working mother. With the economy like it is it makes it extremely hard for middle class families to make ends meet. Maybe there are some things that you can cut back on so you don't have to work so long. Maybe get the cable turned off and only watch basic channels. Can you do without internet? Some people don't have home phones any more and only use cell phones. Those are just a FEW suggestions. Simplifying can help reduce the amount of money needed to support your family and you get more time with kids that way.
