After 1 1/2 years, dh's youngest dd is coming to visit us!!!!!!!
So it will start Father's day weekend and last through the following weekend.
The bad news..... after 1 year of unemployment I'm going back to work June 21. So what do we do with dsd when we're both at work??????
So the plan is hopefully the kids daycare can take her. The problem is that's $229 extra for her. I won't get a paycheck for 2 weeks & my unemployment ran out 2 weeks ago. So we are so broke it isn't funny!
I'm really grateful that we can finally see dsd - the kids & I all love her to death. but next week really?????? And it's all because bio mom is now having issues with her dh - possibly heading for a divorce. So now we're good enough. Like I said I'm thrilled to get time with her but I'm freaking because I don't know where the money is going to come from.

$229/week is with the multi-child discount. We already get that since we have 2 kids. Daycare is expensive. With discount it's $412/week for my 2 kids. Add another kid - plus it's their summer program and we pay extra for my dd because they go on field trips (otherwise it would be soooo boring). So we'd have to pay for dsd field trips too.
WOW, where i live daycare for my 1 yr old is 130 and the higher nicer daycare in town. some are as low as 115 a week. i def couldn't afford anything higher than what i pay and they have no multi child discout... we have 3 kids under the age of 4 and #4 due aug 1st.
hope everythign turns out how you wnt it. our summer time sharing with my dss is the smae way 1 week on 1 week off its common for most time sharing to go that way
My wonderful MIL gave us the money to cover daycare. It's a good thing too since I had to take 1 day off without pay to get through Dh's surgery. It's been an exhausting week but I'm glad dsd was here. She's wonderful! And she kept my dd busy & happy this week while I was focusing on other things.
OMG, that's great Kris! How nice... send her lots of thank you cards & some homemade cookies or something. It's nice to have people who care & want to help. Love to hear this sort of stuff. Positive, helpful, nice. I wish I could say that my MIL was just as nice (NOT)... lol...
