I get 463 back child support and 300 current child support... my bills come to a little over 1400 a month, that does NOT include necessities or anything else. That's just rent(garage/w/s/g), phone, car, internet/cable, and electric
Tina- childcare is very expensive. Although I'll have her kids just as much as she does in a week. It's a two income house and they both have good jobs with good solid income.
Although I am sure she could find someone cheaper, it would probably not be as good as what I am offering. If she was to go to a daycare center, she would be paying 250-300 a week just for about 15 hours...that's what my friend pays her daycare. You could go to a "dumpy" daycare and pay less, but you get what you pay for.
I know plenty of inhome childcare in this area, but it's dirty %60 of the time, the sit the kids in front of the tv and tv babysits the children.
I would be taking them on outings, have daily arts and crafts available, go to the library, go to local parks, feed healthy snacks and meals and so forth. I don't usually like to even have the tv on.
She knows I would be providing food. She offered to buy snacks, but still. Arts and crafts cost $...they aren't cheap. Then I would be transporting the oldest to kindergarten everyday, which isn't far, but still.
She said to think it over and come back to her. She said she wants us to both be happy. She said they have a budget, and I understand and respect that, but so do I. This would be a perfect fit. I also said that I would be doing tot school with her youngest http://lapbooksbycarisa.homestead.com/TotSchool.html
My old job, I made $9 an hour and would work anywhere from 30-40 hours a week.
