My sil seems to think we can't afford 3 kids on that. We live in a newer 4 br house and are able to pay all rent and bills with more than half our income leftover for food, clothes, diapers etc...she doesn't have any kids so i don't think she knows what the hell shes talking about. Ugh i wish she would stfu

Well we make less than that and have a 3rd coming in a couple months. We are doing fine now so 3 shouldn't be to much harder.

 Ummm yeah you can live down to earth on half of that amount too. But living more comfortably is nice. Forget about what she thinks.
