I am so angry !
My husband and I have always tried to make sure that we make decent lives for our kids . he has always had a good job, but in October he lost that job and in the begining of december was able to get a year long temp job. ( they actually said they are going to try and place him there full time because he is such a great worker , so hopefully that does happen) .... I got a job in November, and when he started back to work we had tohave a babysitter ( which is cheaper than daycare) , but we suddenly realized - to pay the babysitter takes my whole paycheck plus $12 of my husbands.... How dumb is that ? so of course I quit to stay home with my babies.... we do get a small amount of food stamps and on the state insurance, but it is just until a better job ( for one of us) comes along, we in no way plan on "living off the system" . So I dont exactly get why a person ( a relative of my husband) would tell me " It is so sad that you are letting your children because welfare trash, how selfish are you to quit your job so you can stay home all day and not worry about a thing, which of course you don't have to since I am paying your bills"
I thought that was so disgusting, this is a 40-some year old woman who we only see maybe 2 or 3 times a year...
It makes me feel horrible ( even though I know she is the trash and I shouldnt let someone like that make me feel so badly) ... but it is just common sense for me not to work just to pay a babysitter ( and still have to add money) . My house is spotless, my kids are very well mannered and very clean - nicely dressed and their hair is always fixed, the same with me and my husband.... and yet she is acting like ( and letting other people believe) that we live in a pig slop ...

I'm sorry. Don't breathe any more life into it. You know what you're doing is what is right for your family.
