Being a mother is the most rewarding job any of us will ever have. However, it is not a job that will put food on the table and clothes on our backs. Adding to your family is essentially increasing the amount of money going out while giving you less time to work.
It is a cycle that can be exhausting. Needing second or third jobs to make ends meet seems like a simple solution to those who don’t have kids. For us we are well aware that we barely have time for our current priorities. By taking a second job we are giving up on precious time with our kids and that is not something any good parent wants to sacrifice.
