I have just gotten my son into an extra day at daycare, so now he goes two days a week (Wednesdays and Fridays). I pay roughly $35 which isn't bad at all. I usually drop him off around 8:30 and pick up up around 6pm. In that time I do grocery shopping, any doctors appointments, housework, catch up with friends etc, but I would really like to be able to get a part time job. Unfortunantly as a single mother I can't work weekends or nights as I have noone to look after the kids, but those two days or even just one of those days, I could (and would like to) work.
The thing is though, I don't know how much money I can be earning before it affects my C'link pay and how much more I'd have to pay for daycare.
Do you think it would be good if I went back to work just two days a week. I really, really want to but I am just not sure.
