Now that the wedding has happened and the house has been purchased, the next traditional "life step" is to start a family. I'm all for this, but kinda scared shitless (for a couple of different reasons, one that I'll get to now and one that I may touch on later).
My question is, once the baby is born, how do you logistically, and financially, do it??
Jacob and I have two incomes. Our bills, mortgage payments, etc. are based on TWO incomes. I don't feel that one of us staying home is an option (I know it couldn't be me. Props to all you SAHMs but I just think I'd go bonkers). And daycare facilities are F***ing expensive!! (I've looked at a couple of places... you know... research. I'm a planner). I don't know that we can fit that into our tight-as-it-is budget. We don't really have family-members-as-babysitter options either. At least, not to cover the first 5 years until the kid starts school.
Please, tell me something that I haven't thought of before. How do people make it work??
(P.S. My high school best friend just had a baby AND I just watched yesterday's episode of Grey's Anatomy.... I have a little baby-brain going on right now).
