No matter what you do, people will talk. So do what is best for YOU & your baby, not other people.
thanks everyone, i have to admit that the only reason i've been able to make it through my first little degree (AAOT transfer degree after next week, WOOT!) is because of my family and my friends who have watched my son free of charge for the last two years... I am so very blessed. I have finally started receiving scholorships so I can now PAY for daycare with my scholorship money- oh and I am inches away from getting my CNA license, which means I can work while I wait to get into the nursing program. It's been crazy hard, but, again, I am so, so, so very blessed. I can't take credit for all of it- many people in my life have sacraficed to help me achieve my dream. :)
