Thanks for taking a moment to read. I'm a mom of two, with a husband who works full time. Due to the high cost of childcare & my son's disability I had to quit my full time job of ten years & give up our health insurance plan. Shortly after my husband lost his job, and was out of work for a couple of months. The same time our main source of transportation broke down and we had to spend a lot of money to fix it. I utilized the small amount of money I had on credit cards to fix the car. We are one of those families on the brink. We have no leftover money for anything extra. We utilize our awesome communities free resources and libraries for fun. As much as would like to teach my kids that Christmas is not about money and presents I don't want to break my younger ones heart that Santa is not real. My older is a bit "younger spirited" due to his disability and still believes. I don't want them t grow up and have to remember the Christmas where they learned that Santa isn't real because I can't afford presents. :(
Please anything will help. You will make this mama feel a lot better and stressed out and make two kids very happy.
Love & peace.
A thankful Mama
