Here's the deal. I live in Hawaii, currently living with family in a seperated Ohana (cottage) because rent here is RIDICULOUS. We're talking $1300.00 - $1400.00 for a 1 bedroom apartment, and that's on the lower end. I am pregnant again, as a result of a bad judgment call with my son's father (I just always want to give him the benefit of the doubt... damn it), and will be doing most of this on my own... at least financially. I make about $2300.00/month, so after bills I figure that I can afford about $1000.00 a month towards rent. This puts me in a less than ideal situation bc the only apartments in that price range are studios.
My point for posting this is I am wondering if any of you mamas have made a studio appartment work with 2 babies under 3 (my son will have just turned 2 when this baby is born)? My main concern is sleep patterns. What are your experiences?
Also, I know there are some people out there who are going to want to start something (from past experiences), so before we get off on any tangent about why I would sleep with him again, why I don't just pack up my kids and move to a different state that I can afford, or things of that nature, I am just going to say this: No one is perfect. I have no right to judge you or the decisions that you make (nor would I) and the same goes for you. What works perfectly fine for one person may not work for someone else. What's right in your eyes, may not be right in mine (and vice versa). I work hard to support my son, and I will do the same for this baby.
Sorry, I've just had one too many bad experiences with negative people! Anyhow, lemme hear your stories/ideas/suggestions!
