OK, I have 4 kids ages 5,5,2, and 7 months.

I am a sahm and I go to school part time evenings.Dh is a barber. That is our only income. We get by just fine financially but there isn't muchextra $ each month.

I wish I could go to school full-time days. I would be able to graduate in about 9 months vs. 18 months as a night student.

Dh's aunt offered to take my 2 youngest children for me so I can go to school days. She lives in Puerto Rico though. I'm in mass.

9 months is a long time to be away from my babies :( I would even miss my baby's 1st bday if I chose to do this ( also first steps & lots of other firsts)...

They would be well cared for. I'm not worried about that.

My oldest children would be in school the same hours as me so keeping them here is perfectly fine.

Is this a good opportunity?
Or should I pass??

I would pass. Is it possible she could come live with you for those 9 months? 9 months is a LONG time for children that young. Especially for your 7 month old.

 I would never in a million years send my kids off to Puerto Rico so I could go to school. There is something wrong with you.

Wow... I wouldn't, but it's up to you and your husband.
