    last summer for Bit, just for something different for her to do during the summer, not because we need daycare, because I'm home anyway. They wanted almost $150/WEEK for a 10 year old, PLUS extra for whatever activities they did, like going to the movies, etc. I don't know who could afford that. Sure, they have scholarships and such. But we decided against applying because we don't need the daycare and there are people who do, and I won't take a scholarship from one of them as much as my daughter would have liked to have gone.

    Now keep in mind, Caedy works at McDonalds, at just above minimum wage, and usually gets about 30-35 hours a week. She brings home between $180 and $217 a week in pay. How does anyone who needs the child care afford that??
