Daycare.......OMG

Ok, I'm currently freaking out about daycare expenses.  Holy crap I may have to return Jr. because I dont think we can afford daycare.  I can't believe how expensive it is!  I mean I knew it wasn't cheap but DH and I both have good jobs (for our area) and we certainly dont live above our means.  We have the usual debt (car pmts, mortgage, 1 credit card) but we dont have student loans or multiple credit cards and store cards.  We live pretty modestly and I dont know what we're going to do.  I actually realized today, I may have to sell my horse because he is currently boarded and that is money we could use towards daycare.  I'm currently in total panic mode.

I consider myself extremely lucky - our good friend is a SAHM and used to be a teacher and just applied for her in-home daycare license. She should be up and running by May so we're sending LO to her. We haven't discussed costs yet but she's only watching kids of family and friends and I know she won't gauge us. I can only imagine Day Care centers or in home day care being what Jackie's would cost or MORE in the SF Bay Area!!! It's expensive to live here which is why our plan is eventually to move out of it.
