Someday I am going to get ahead of the game, but sadly, not today.
I know where you're coming from man. My wife and I both have decent paying jobs, she works for the State and I work Federal, but it takes awhile to get over that hump. We have 2 kids, only 1 who is still in preschool that we have to pay for. It feels like there is never enough money to go around. The good thing is that theres enough to make the kids happy.
And my god, how on earth did you manage $100 for babysitting?? How often is that???
