She Works Hard for the Money

“My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.” – Errol Flynn

Jade is a nanny.  She is an amazing nanny.  She is the kind of nanny people dream about.  Currently, Jade cares for Baby CutiePatootie.  Well lately, Baby CutiePatootie’s parents have been going through a lot of financial problems and as a result, Jade has been keeping Baby CutiePatootie for free.  While we would love to keep Baby CutiePatootie and continue to help out FancyFace (Baby CutiePatootie’s Mom), we want to have a baby and let’s be real – we can’t save money for these expensive procedures if Jade isn’t bringing in any money.  Well today, FancyFace told me that she is moving in with her parents THIS WEEKEND.  As a result she paid Jade!  She also said she is planning on paying Jade back pay for all of the weeks of free childcare and would like to help us out with trying to save some money.  By my calculations (using the highest estimates possible), it will take us about $1500 per attempt.  Any possible way to put away any additional money is greatly appreciated.  One of my biggest fears is that we won’t be able to afford this.  We have a long road ahead of us.
