    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.

    Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas: lights are on the houses, decorations are up in the stores, the shopping traffic is horrendous, and the snow is falling. In some places, in fact, the snow is falling so much that school is getting cancelled and the roads are too bad for casual driving conditions. So what do you do when youre stuck inside all day with a gaggle of Christmas-crazy kids? With a little preparation and creativity, snow days can be fun chances for you and your children to bond.

    Make indoor snowmen

    If its 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.

      if she does not have lots of close family who wants to pitch in and help for free. I had a nanny for 9 years ($$$$), so that I could go to work, and have the flexibility to go out after work, or do work events in the evening. Day care does not cut it. Also, costs of having a child and raising him are a lot more than one thinks, even if one thinks that one knows. It is stressful to be a parent, and even more so a single parent. Money helps a lot.
