Update on Am I wrong...

So I wrote about wanting to stay home longer with DS and making DH do the work hours for TANF. We arrived at our appointment at 9 am and basically she told DH he has to do the hours. He will be doing volunteer work at the dog shelter which I think he will enjoy. He loves animals so I can't see that as being a bad thing! So yay for me being able to take care of the kids. I know this isn't a permanent situation and I will eventually need to go to work. But for now, I think its very important that I am the one taking care of our children.

I feel like we've missed so much of Sierras childhood because we were both working 10 hour days. I know she is a lot happier when we are home too. Thanks everyone for your advice.

  1. I love your blog and your honest appreciation for what "really" matters in life. I know how hard it is to have to leave the children to earn a living - raised mine for 13 out of 18 years alone. My youngest (then just 5) left kindergarten without permission and walked several blocks to where I work just to "see me". Now if that doesn't break a Mother's heart!

    It may have been a blessing that I lost two jobs within two years due to businesses downsizing and closing and the failing economy in Michigan, because since 2003 or so, I studied and researched and FOUND ways to work from home that are legitimate. For a couple years, that was our only income and I averaged $8-$12 per hour that I worked (when it was convenient for ME and the kids).

    Through the years I have wanted to help others...it is a passion. If you would like some insight into REAL work at home, I will be happy to help you find your way. You might start with my old forum, Designing Life here: http://designinglife.proboards.com/index.cgi

    Anything posted by me has been researched or I did work there - the other posters may or may not be giving helpful info.

    Bright Blessings to you and yours.
