    Over 40 y.o. friend just baby with donor sperm/donor egg. Single teacher working in NYC and living in Long Island. In debt and went further in debt through this process. Can one raise a child semi comfortably making less than 80k? Moved closer to parents who will watch child part time, but friend will need babysitter part time.

    Make indoor snowmen

    If itís too cold to go outside to make snowmen, you can do it inside instead. There are a couple different versions of this activity you might choose from.
