I need a job. But I don't want to leave my house.
Does my entire life consist of catch-22's? Don't answer that.
I've found what seems like a perfectly acceptable option: starting an in-home daycare. Unfortunately, it's going to have to be in MY house but we can't always get everything we want, now can we? The military has an amazing training program for home daycare providers. The training, toys, and equipment- all free. You get enrolled in a state nutrition program that provides chow for all the kiddos (including my own kid, and that my friends is worth it's weight in freakin GOLD).
So all in all, this daycare thing sounds pretty good. I'll have a reason to get my lazy butt up in the morning, my kiddo will have playmates. Weekends, holidays, and military holidays would be days off.
Does it sound like I'm trying too hard to talk myself into this?
I like kids, I really do. I just don't like punk-ass little kids who whine and cry above and beyond the call of duty. Nothing some time in the corner wouldn't cure but STILL. What if I start up this thing and wind up with a punk-ass kid? Sigh. I guess I'll just have to throw caution to the wind and take my chances.
And then there's the money. I would be able to earn up to two grand a month (gross) watching six kids (which is the program limit, mine included) five days a week. The extra money would be fantabulous; I'd be able to
So what do ya'll think? Should I go ahead with this plan? Is there anything ya'll think I haven't considered yet? (By the way, my hubby does approve of said home-based business. As long as HE doesn't have to change any diapers, he's game. Freakin man.)
