What has been the biggest stress/problem with having a child. For me it's child care. I am a single parent but I work midnights so I have been lucky enough to always have the same person watch her while I work. Very lucky I've only had to miss one day of work in 2 years. However because she's not in school yet only 2 years old finding someone to baby sit her in the day is a task. Mostly because i rarely do things or go places that I can't take her so I never built that network of sitters but now for a dental appointment or medical appointment it's so frustrating finding a friend or family to watch her for a couple of hours because everyone works during the day. It stresses me out that even getting my teeth cleaned by the dentist seems impossible.
