I worked full time when I just had my first daughter.I was very lucky to have my husbands grandmother take care of her with out charging us a dime. Now, I have my second daughter and I was planning on staying home but it's looking like I'm going to have to go back to work (my husband is working 3 jobs and we are still having a hard time paying our bills). Anyway, I can not believe expensive daycare is. I know that it's a tough job and the providers deserve every penny of it but I just don't see how people can afford it!
We just worked out that if the girls 31/2 and 9 months were in the daycare near my house 6 hours a day 5 days a week it would be 960.00 a month! I've asked around and this seems to be pretty normal for daycare that is not through the state(which we don't qualify for). I just can't believe that people can afford this.
I'm trying to get my older daughter into a preschool instead of a daycare but the prices seem to be about the same. Seriously thinking about saying "adios!" to California!

We can't. I have 3 kids & the total estimate a month would be around 1200 or more. Good thing I'm a SAHM.
