We kept the girls home over Spring Break specifically to save money on our daycare bill. I lost so much homework time, but I figured it was worth it. But no. They are still charging us for that week. What is up with that?!
They used to have a week of every semester that you could keep your kids home, and it was a considered vacation and they didn't charge your for it. But they got rid of that, so now they are charging us for Spring Break anyway.
I should have more work done on my thesis. I have a meeting with my director today, and I have practically nothing done. All because the girls stayed home over Spring Break. Why do I even try?
PS. Guess what our daycare bill is this month. Just guess. $1000. A thousand dollars! Guess how much I make a month. $300. School is a worthless money pit.
What do you do to offset daycare costs? Can you recommend any alternatives for this situation?
