Do I deserve PA?

Anonymous

We are a family of three. Me, DH, and a 7 month old baby girl that I breastfeed and give homemade solids to.

My husband works 40 hours at a bank and I am a SAHM and college student. I don't work at all.

Do we deserve PA?

Also, my house is a disaster because I'd rather spend time with my baby than be cleaning all day. When she naps I usually am doing homework or cleaning a little here and there.

Doesn't sound like you need it. Maybe grants and loans for college.

I don't see what pa has to do with it, if you qualify you qualify.
I do think that saying home, you need to get in a routine to get the house organized. Your daughter deserves to live in a clean environment.
You cleaning is not taking away from her at all. Kids need to learn to self entertain, not have momma I daddy 24/7.
Teach her to clean. At that age DD was holding her self up on the table, so I have her a rag an let her "clean" the coffee table!

If you qualify you qualify.  No one deserves it. It's not given out because it is deserved, it is given out as a means to help those who are in need. If you are need and qualify, good. If you aren't in need and are just taking it because you qualify that's taking advantage of a system in order to  help maintain a lifestyle. Which is not what PA was created for or intended to be used for.

I totally agree. Playing is great, but letting your house go to hell isn't going to be beneficial to anyone.

Why not?
Teaches her thy cleanliness is important at a young age and keeps her occupied while you get some things done.
You are a parent. You need to think about how every little thing can be a learning experience.
Even at this age they can be involved in what you need to do.
