    Right here! 1 kid and wife staying behind in home state. A mortgage and rent plus utilities in both places. $26,000 a year in tuition. All this plus, you know, actually going to school. This is what we signed up for though. I am excited too!!

    I have a stay at home dad and three kids. I have spent so much time worrying about how the house is going to run as a single parent household that I haven't had much time to worry about school! Very worried about the finances as I have not yet found out if I am going to get the grad plus. I see myself working weekends to pay rent and food and the phones getting turned off...

    What are you going to do about insurance. My wife and I talked about her moving up with me but we need insurance.

    kids are going on state insurance. Hubs has minimal insurance thru the VA. I know my school offers one, but I do not know how much money it is, or how it compares to a private policy I can find online. Wondering if I have no income it will make me elgible for state insurance with all the new insurance stuff coming out...

    I saw on another post the aana has a deal with an insurance company...I was looking at them too.

    Not at all.

    I'm quitting in 3 weeks, my loans are set to disperse covering cost of living and tuition, I get my wife's insurance starting September 1st and I'm taking a vacation next month. Couldn't be more prepared, or relaxed.

    I really feel bad for you guys with kids, I can't imagine the extra stress. It's doable, I'd say 1/3 of my class are parents, but I can't say I'm jealous! A baby will be the wife's graduation present from me lol.

    Detroit,

    I'm glad you're confident. School will be challenging with a child. Anything worth doing is tough though. I'm as prepared as possible. I've been out of school for 2 years though so i'm dreading the grueling school work and study hours.

    I am actually excited to be able to go to school without working 48+ hours a week or two jobs at the same time! I have never had the luxury...

    I hear you missnurse. I've taken off the whole month of July and it has been great!! I've worked and went to school at the same time since high school. I won't know how to handle it.

    Yep! I've worked part time or full time ever since I was 13. I've never had more than 3 weeks off of work since that time. It's gonna be nice just focusing on school.
