Hugs, mama, and I hope you find a situation that will work for your family!

I do miss the teaching sometimes . . . especially in September!
I was going to suggest tutoring.

And yes, thought it's hard, living frugally is another answer. Though money might be tighter, you will be able to be home with your babe (which seems to be what you want). I'm not sure where you are, but my sister took care of kids (on top of her own). She was a single mom and my hero.

I hope you make the choice that's best for all.
