whoa!I almost felt ya for a minute, until you mentioned sitting on our ass all day...
an example: I wake up at 730. my job begins when my child wakes up at 745-8. I'm on my feet for probably 8-10 of the next 12 hours. once he goes to bed at 8-9ish, then I get my own personal sit down and relax time.I used to get a break when he would take naps, tho... it wasn't a sit down break, more of a ""whew! no child hanging on my leg! I can get something done for a few minutes!!"" type of break..
I mean when the child is in school 8-3 , He could have a job during that time. Child could be in daycare for a few hours as he has a part time time. there's no reason to drop the whole financial burden on one person when both are able to work. Even if its a part time.
PT work, sure, some days.. if managed correctly.just because the kid/s are in school, doesn't mean the home doesn't need maintained. there's always laundry, cleaning, more cleaning, organizing and more cleaning, the toilet needs fixed, the walls need painted, need to put the fence up out back so the dog quits running away, bills need paid, grocery shopping, etc..also. personally. 200% against daycare. talking about financial burden... I won't pay someone else to 'watch'. I don't trust people, I'm more interested in our children having the right morals and values instilled in them. I'm not going to bust my ass to pay someone else to pretend to watch my child while playing on his/her phone 😄if you want to get up at 4am, come home at 2pm, sure I might go off to work from 3-11. but only for so long, its just not worth it. couples can only last so long when they never see each other.
ps.. I forgot to add, that toilet, walls, fence that need to be done... those are all on the long list of hunny due items that you've struggled to get your typical husband to do anyways... no there's no excuse for him not to get things done 😄
Only you wouldn't be the one paying someone else to watch the kid because you're not the one working. Those basic house things can be done whenever. It definitely isn't a good reason to not work. disabled, yes, deathly sick, yes. New bor. baby, yes. Having to fold socks, no.
thank you for your thoughts!
No problem (:
Two incomes are better than one. If I get laid off them we're fucked. There are a lot of people getting laid off now so to me the more stable situation would be two working parents.
