Hello all,
i am pregnant with my second child and and am delighted, but not sure how I am going to pay child care for two kids! If I stay with my current situation, (which I love), I will be paying $250 a week total for the two children. This is a substantial portion of my income and I'm a single mom with no child support. Does anyone know of anything more affordable? Perhaps been in this situation and come up with a creating solution?

What can I do next?

N.--Where do you live?!??!! :-) $250 a week for TWO kids is a STEAL, I pay more than that in the city just for ONE. Seriously, that's awesome, I should move to where you are! :-) Congrats on your pregnancy! L
