Re: Should I stay home?
I'm all for having the money, but you have $24,000 in debt? Like you don't have a mortgage ontop of that? I applaud your dedication & self reliance, but plenty of people I know(myself included) have a mortgage for debt. Mine is shy of $131,000. I sneeze at your $24,000! Plenty of people have car loans(my BIL who is a DOCTOR!) and yet have kids.
I would never let debt keep me from having a child. I do home daycare, and even after the kid's leave for the day, thinking about going off to another job.
