Hey ladies! I am a lurker on this board since DH is joining the Army. You ladies always have good advice and I am in need of some.
DH will be leaving for bootcamp soon. I am a stay at home mom during the day and I work 5-9PM at night. While I am at work DH watches DD. We decided early in the process of him joining that I would quit my job once he left for bootcamp and he started getting paid/recieveing BAH. I am not sure how long that takes, but anyhow my mom had agreed that in the meantime she would watch her.
Now that DH is getting ready to leave he is having second thoughts about me quitting my job. He doesn't think we will have enough money. We live a fairly modest lifestyle with no car payments, no cable, (we have internet for my school since its online). Rent will be paid through BAH of course so I am not understading why DH thinks DD and I can't live off his pay during his time at boot camp.
Did anyone else stay home with their child while DH was away at bootcamp? I have always had a fear of putting my daughter in daycare (she will be 2 in December). I know that if it has to be done I will do it, but I just hate the idea of putting her there.
