Ever thought about starting an in-home day care?

Yes, this has crossed my mind and would be high on the list if I were to leave this job. Not sure who would want a crazy lady with two big dogs watching their children, but I'm sure someone is whacked out enough to give it a whirl.

My point is that none of these things affects your net income, which is the amount of dollars coming in, after deductions and taxes.

Right, I clarified later - I am using the term too loosely. I meant "money I can actually spend", and since daycare has to be paid for me to even work, losing work means also losing the associated daycare expense. They go hand in hand.
