A HS only education is no excuse for making only $500 a month. When I was a police dispatcher, no one had a college degree and starting pay was $18 an hour. Same with the records clerks, police services technicians, etc. She can work shift work to minimize babysitting, although with you being a school teacher, there really is no need for a babysitter, is there? Not trusting daycare is a BS excuse. Your children are between the ages of 5 and 9! They can tell you what is going on with the babysitter. Your wife is lazy and doesn't want to work! Yet she wants to spend what she wants and blame you for buying books. Sorry, but in this economy a two income family is what is needed just to survive. If you want to have kids, you gotta do the work to pay for them, dance lessons, etc.

I am currently in a 1 semester program at the local community college to get nationally certified as a Pharmacy Technician. It's only 1 semester, but I wanted a career change so I am doing it. My DH makes over $100,000 a year and we have two kids, yet I do MY part as I like nice things too and those come with a price.
