But next year, when I am at uni, I'll have 3 in two days a week, which with rebates will be $300, I do consider that a lot personally. Only because we are paying a mortgage and raising 4 kids on one income, and I *know* that we are so lucky to be able to do that, I know that not all families can afford to do that.

    I still think childcare is expensive though.
    it was 95 a day for ds1 and was 55 a day for ds2 half days. 4 days a week. Sibling discount.

    We don't get a sibling discount. Apparently you get it at school here though. So that will be good.

    I also think it is ok to whinge, if no one whinged on bubhub, it would be an awfully quiet place!

    Agreed. Everyone should be concerned about this. I worked before having my child but after taking time off to care for her and then becoming a single parent, I have zero super left. And being single means that it will be unlikely that I will be able to have my own house and I will always find it more financially difficult than those with a double income. And there are a lot of other women in the same situation.

    And this is the sort of sh*t that you continue to spout that gets people annoyed. The rest of your post was reasonably fine but when you tack this utter rubbish on the end, people will bite. And I think you know that.

    I get what you're saying.

    Though If a person has been a stay at home mum then they still might have valid input.

    I think people would have a problem with the input regardless of whether it came from an 'intruder' or not. If a stay at home mum mentioned what kimberly did I think they would still be shot down.

    I also think people are extra sensitive to Kimberlys views because of past history. The original reference to the shoes thing makes me think that.

    VicPark, like I said, it's totally awesome that KG has done so well for herself, honestly. I do strongly dislike the implication that makes her or anyone else better than others who have done things differently, it's a constant thing I see in threads about government assistance in which she posts in, I am not sure if it is deliberate or not but that is the way it comes across. Not everyone ends up where they are from hard work and not everyone ends up where they are from slacking off. My point was that sometimes its not appropriate to enter a thread such as those I mentioned above just to, what seems like big note yourself and put others down in a round about kind of way. I don't begrudge anyone the right to be proud of what they've achieved but there is a time and place for it. I have zero past history with KG, this is the first time I have responded to her on Bubhub and my response wasn't "tainted" by my own situation.

    Maybe but it isn't just past stuff but in the present too. You seem a pretty switched on person, surely you get why these sort of comments inflame people? I would never dare bag out working mums in their section. Surely the same could be asked for us?

    You are correct VicPark. There are sometimes people on BH that make comments that offend people on a regular basis which makes it difficult for people to take them with a clean slate in each thread. I believe this is the case here.

Nor do I brag about my financial situation, I simply comment how it is and I'm extremely proud of dh and my achievements in our 20yrs together, we have had a very successful relationship and marriage and we have worked god damn hard, we have such beautiful boys who aren't spoilt but have financial security for their futures to give them a good start in life. If others attempted to do the same and better their situations instead of whingeing about what tony abbott stated and expecting money for staying at home and all the other such hand outs I wouldn't feel the need to comment on these threads.
    I am on maternity leave ATM, but I have gone back to work part-time when my children were less than 12 months old, and I will be returning to work part-time in October, possibly even in term 3 as my school might need me. I have a university degree, but my maximum earning capacity without promotion is 89k. My husband earns very good money, but I don't bring it up every time a tax thread or whatever comes up and complain about how much tax he pays!

    And I beg to differ, you do brag. You reveal a lot about yourself without even knowing it, obviously.

    There is a way of getting your point across without big noting yourself. I suspect from a material point of view I have more in common with KG than I'd like to admit but I'd also hope most people on here wouldn't know that because I don't need to harp on about it nor is it relevant.

    At the end of the day having a whole bunch of people mainly women in their 60s and 70s effectively on welfare because they have nothing does no one any good.
