My son went to daycare for like 3 weeks in his life because it cost as much as his dad was making at work. It sucked. We were always poor. I worked at a daycare, and even though I liked it, I made $10/hr. I was also working at the NH State Liquor stores making $13, so I left the daycare. That place is completely closed now.

Ugh 😫 that's so intense. I used to work with an agency that contracted us to do some of VT DCF's work. It was a lot. I got burned out pretty quickly from just all the traumatic things happenings and the crazy politics. I do not miss the job.

I've never bought maple syrup from either place, but don't really plan to. My son's grandfather makes maple syrup so we have had local stuff for years. We've been out for a while, and that guy has always hated me, but he really doesn't like thinking about my kid possibly eating any other kind. Lol

Okay I guess I gotta say it. I know everyone is different, but I'm so mad at this woman. I gave birth to my son on December 26, 9 years ago. He was also 4lbs at birth. I was homeless for half of the time i was pregnant. I was a drug addict when I found out I was pregnant. I was also 26. I live in a small area, but I utilized EVERY MF RESOURCE I could find, and got housing, parenting classes, addiction treatment and counseling. Life has not been super easy, but I did everything I could for him. Right now, we're waiting for family to show up for his 9th birthday party, in a warm home, and I work for a recovery program. Yes, she needs help, but people can also express their opinion on this and I agree with them. I just hope that baby is okay.
