Oh, I also meant to say that I think you SHOULD just go for it if you think you and your husband can handle the struggle. The LVN/LPN programs only take a year and you can always get more education later. Go for your dream while you are young and also only have one child(I'm assuming your child is in school, so daycare won't be a problem). Like one of earlier posts said there is a lot of financial aid out there as well as loans. The LVN program here costs about $3000 so a loan would definitely be worth it. Also, you probably can't start until the next Fall semester(atleast that't how it is here) so ya'll could start living on your husbands salary now and save all of yours for school. Look to the Lord, He will help you find a way!!
