March break!? When did it break?

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…

HOLY SHIT!!!!

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.

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.
