Aw I'm sure it will be a sad transition, but it is great that you will be able to pay off that debt for your family and do the type of work that you are passionate about. And I am assuming your mom will be able to watch her so you won't have to pay for daycare?
Yes, she is going to watch her for now. My mom wants to get a job herself because she wants to have some independence, and just because that is the type of person she is. Until she gets a job though I planned on paying her the same I would pay a daycare (it is relatively cheap in our area) and maybe that will entice her just to stay home with Lil haha!
