They are all ours together..we are married and we've never applied for assistance so Im not sure if we would qualify or not

When I lost my job we were at $1200 a month and we didnt eat so well.

Would you qualify for SNAP?
Not sure but thinking of applying

Mama, it sounds like your kiddos are really taking advantage of you. You deserve much more than that. Nursing babies getting up- fine, but antsy toddlers waking in middle of the night getting snacks and drinks? I think something needs to change. You sound like you really cater to their wants and obviously, meet their needs. But is okay for them to understand that they can't have it all their way, all the time. Is this something you feel we can help you with?

I dont know. I just do what they ask. Sometimes I feel bad if I feel they dont get what they want..such as toddler number 4 waking and asking for food and this becuase he is hungry
