    congrats to you on your hard work and dedication to your dream......you're a wonderful human being !

    Awwww.. THANK YOU!! That's the nicest thing I think anyone has ever said about me! I was a below average student in HS and barely made it to graduation, I just thought I was dumb. I make straight A's & B's in nursing school... who would've ever thought!

    Good luck to you

    Good luck with your sling buisness. Make sure you let your local La Leache League know you are selling those slings. I prefer a Maya Wrap (maybe you can sell both?) cause I dont like the padding but other moms prefer the padding. One mom and student I know makes her own slings and have been selling those, not anything to live on but a few bucks a month and they are really cute!

    Also wear it out in public if you have a baby, I have people coming up to me all the time wondering where to get a Maya Wrap sling! And my friend Courtney has twins and she wears 2 slings at the same time and people come up to her all the time as well asking about where to get one.

    Just some thoughts.

    Good luck!

    I'm supporting Me,my wife and two kids right now while going to school.I'm only doing my prereqs right now so it has'nt been bad.Even though I'm 40 my parents are paying my tuition for school.They made a deal with all of us kids if we wanted to go to school they would take care of that part.The part that scares me is when I get to the nursing part.Thats a lot of hours.I know that I was lead in this direction by God and he will work it all out at that time.He always does!Good Luck to all of you.Everything always works out in the end if you give it your best shot.:spin:

    I quit a full time job to work part time in a hospital. I'm single and must work so that I have health insurance. I was on my own and rented my own house since I was 20 (no children). This fall I start the ADN program and have finally swallowed my pride and moved back home with my mom. She's great, should have never moved out in the first place. I'm never leaving home again. It was too hard doing pre-reqs, working full time, and just trying to keep up with my house, so I told myself that if I got accepted I had to move back home and I did. To all of you single mothers out there. God Bless. I have no children and I know how difficult it is. My mom is also a single mom and I know everything she has gone through. Your children are going to have soooo much respect for you. This I know first hand.

    My husband has been the sole financial supporter of our family for the past 28 years... he's just counting the days (which are many) when he can retire from the Army and let me support him! He has been a huge supporter of my education and keeps me going! Hurray for all of the wonderful 'cheerleaders' in our lives!

    I am working part time right now, and saving those pennies for Nursing school! We decided that I would wait until both of our kids are in school full time before I go to school full time. Hopefully we'll have a second car by then!

    Hubby makes good money, so we will be ok I have told him that I will not be working p/t during school because I want to focus on my schooling.

    I know that I am very lucky

    I have pell grant to pay my tuition and books. I also work full time as a 911 dispatcher. I am a single mom to a 2 year old son, so not working is not an option for me. It is hard working but I hope I can keep it up for 2 more years.

    I am working still as a CNA on the burn unit. Its a wonderful unit and the nurses are so supportive. They allow me to take naps if I need to, do my homework at work, and even leave early or come in late if needed. I work 36 hours one week and 48 the next. I work 12 hour nights. I will probably cut back a little once I actually begin a program but doing 3 classes last semester of general courses and working wasn't a problem. I still managed to pull out a 3.7 gpa. My husband works as a contractor and helps out at home with meals, housework and the 2 boys. Thank God for him! LOL
