Hey All You Mommies Out There!



I'm Kinda In A Bind At The Moment With My Life And I Really Need Some Advice...My Boyfriend Is Currently Working And I'm The "Stay-At-Home-Mommy For Now. (I Do Have A Job, But I'm On Leave Taking Care Of My Son At The Moment.) With The Weather & Winter Here He Hasn't Been Working As Many Hours And His Pay Has Been Cut Pretty Badly...He's Going To Be Getting Partial Unemployment For Now Until They Start Getting More Hours, But He Is Still Going To Be Working. I Already Told Him That I Can Go Back To Work And He Can Give His Two Week Notice And Stay Home With Our Son And Look For A Better Job In The Meantime. He Really Doesn't Want To Stay Home Because He's That Type Of Guy That Has To Be Out There And Working...I Really Love Staying Home With My Son And Everything, But This Is Eating Into Our Savings...I'm So Stressed Out That It's Literally Killing Me It Seems...I Have Until 4/6/2011 When My Leave Is Up To Go Back Or Resign. I Can't Do Daycare Because It's Too Expensive And No One In Our Family Is Willing To Watch Him For Us. So, It Has To Be Me Or Him That Stay Home With Our Son. Please Help?

honey i will send blessing ur way by praying they come tell him to be patient and find things for him to do outside to keep his mind off of it. god never puts more on us than we can bare and he no's exactly what is going on with every one of us but just talking to him and having faith is more than some one telling u its gonna be all rite think positive and positive will come back to u

I don't know what it's like in other places, but if you happen to be here in Canada, you can get your daycare subsidized. Go to the Ministry of Family and Social Services office in your town.

If he is on reduced hours can you go back part time, so when one of you is working the other can look after your son?

Can you get on assistance? They have subsidized daycare. I don't know where you live but it seems like you would qualify.
Since you are a single mom with a child you should qualify for a lot.
