I am a 24 year old mum to three and I am desperate to become a midwife. My original goal was to do the foundation course thise year and apply for midwifery 2013. I was hoping I would be 30 when I am qualified with all three kiddies in school.
The plan seems perfect, however my husband is on a low wage. So we will be scrimping and scraping to make ends meet while I study.
With this is mind I am now second guessing whether its the right time for me to apply for uni. Should I apply and make do for a few years, or should I get a regular part time job to give us more money to spend and enjoy as a family.
I feel really selfish making our family have to scrimp and scrape financially, though I also want to show my kids that you can achieve what you want in life no matter what the circumstances.
Its a really hard decision for me and would love some opinions as to whaty ou think i should do.
I could also get a job working nights if I had to, to earn more money. However it would mean even less time with the kids which i really dont want to do. Very confused!!!
