We are able to pay for everything we and the girls needs just fine now. We don't live in the nicest apartment, it's older and the girls don't get brand new everything, but we are able to meet all of their needs just fine.



And a lot of you missed the part where I said if she gets SSI, I'm asking if it would be a good idea to be a SAHM if she gets approved for SSI. If she doesn't, then I would get a job.

You are not able to pay for anything if you're living off of loans. Once again I don't mean to sound harsh but that's the truth. Don't get offended.



Anyway, there's no reason she shouldn't get approved for SSI.

SSI would maybe be 600. I get disability and I make 919 a month.

All she needs is your love and attention. Neither of your girls will ever care that they don't live in a mansion and get everything brand new. They'll ALWAYS remember that their mom was always there for them. I hope she gets approved soon! And it would be even more awesome if you guys would get backed SSI from the time she was born until she gets approved. My fingers will be crossed for you guys :)

Honestly, people can say whatever they want, they might think it's selfish, but I would definitely stay home in your situation. It's not ideal to live paycheck to paycheck, but if you are meeting their needs for right now especially while she is so young, I think it's more important that you are physically with her. Even if things are tight, there's always a way to make do. So what if everything you buy can't be brand new.... love and support and providing a stable homelife is more important than material possessions.
