Here on the left coast of Canada March break is two weeks long. While I get that by now most teachers could probably use about a month off, 2 weeks feels like a lot of childcare to cover, especially when summer is just around the corner. Add to that the fact that it’s time to file our taxes (yes we’re a teensy bit behind on that) and we’ve just gathered up all of our childcare tax receipts and can I just say…
How do people afford children these days? How long before we can make them start earning their keep? Anyone know of a good child powered sweat shop in town?
I think that whole guesstimate about how it costs a million dollars to raise a child is totally lowballed. There’s no way kids are that cheap!
On that note, I’m going to go make myself feel better by purchasing a venti Starbucks Pike Place coffee, no sugar, no cream, pure caffeine for the same cost of a half hour of babysitting.
