if he isn't working could he take care of them? Then you wouldn't have to worry about paying for day care. Hope for you all he can get a job soon!

Breathe. Somehow it will all work out. It sucks, but sometimes you have to put your big girl panties on and attack these problems head on.

It can't rain forever.

Do you know why he lost it? I understand that this can be so stressful. You need to sit down with your DH and discuss it together. Come up with a plan b as soon as possible and put it into action.

Take a deep breath. Why did he lose his job? Would he qualify for unemployment? Job search tonight fir him, have him get 2 part times if he can. I hope things get better. We were in a similar situation a year ago

This. Also, he can stay home with the kids until he gets another job. No daycare costs.

Deep Breath. My husband made the same phone call to me the end of October. It will get better. If he isn't working pull the kids from day care until he is. Are you working? Can you take on extra hours?

I already tried to file for unemployment for him today but i cant until the 6th.I told him that he needs to find another job but he said that he only wants to work in landscaping.I don't know if losing this job was his fault because last week he was telling me that he is tiered if his job and he will just stick around until they fire him...And 1 week later they fired him hhmmmmm....Sounds a little fishy to me.

If he isn't working why would the baby need to be in daycare? And was it his fault he lost his job?

He needs to open up his options. He has a family to care for so right now anything is better than nothing
