I feel the same way. My dd is in 1st grade now, but that was definetly my case when she was smaller. We are a one income family also, and yes, it is hard, but the most important is luckily enough paid for; bills, food, etc. But, we hardly have any for ourselves after bills. I also wish I had a job, what is there to do all day? If the house is clean, kids at school, dh at work!? Yes, the day care waiting list is awful, they usually give 1st priority to those who CAN afford to pay for it CASH. I hope it works out for you and your family hang in there, don't lose hope. If you are near any job placement resource center maybe they can help you there. I guess every state is different, but like here in TX a local one I've gone to, helps make resumes (if you don't have one) besides helping in job placement. HTH, Good luck to you!
