Hi Everyone! Im new to this just looking for an outlet to speak to other moms. I am 23, with a 3 year old son. I work weekends parttime as an administrative assistant, and plan to go to school in the fall for graphic design. My boyfriend doesn't work due to medical reasons. We are trying our hardest to get our own apartment, which is tough and expensive here in NYC. I just enrolled my son in weekend childcare, which he attends every other weekend. I live with my folks but we do not get along so its extremely tough since my bf can't physically be here sometimes I feel so alone. I've been trying to find ways to make a little extra cash flow so we can save for an apartment. But its hard when I can't find childcare, and even if I did 80% of my paycheck would go to childcare, defeating the purpose of getting the job. I'm just venting here, don't mond my rambling. I just wish I knew what else to do as far as making life a little easier on all of us....

Can I ask why your boyfriend's medical reasons for not working are also preventing him from taking care of your child while you work?
