I'm Staying Home with Our Kids Due to COVID. We're Down to One Income & Need Help with Our Rent!
I'm a soon to be married mother of three, two boys and one girl. Due to Covid-19, I've become a stay-at-home mom while my kids are out of school due to the virus. Our kids are sad about not being able to go to school and they really miss it, but I'm doing my best to keep them learning and occupied with activities on a daily basis. They're all incredibly energetic and love challenges more than anything. My fiance works as an assistant band director at a local college, and he's a great father and a wonderful man.
We're used to being a two-income household, so when I had to stay home with our children due to the pandemic, it hit us in some unexpected ways. We've been relying on our savings to keep us above water on all of our bills, but those have run out recently. During December and January schools are completely on break and that usually shortens my fiance's income. Usually, we're able to budget for that and prepare for that using my income, but I don't have anything coming in right now, so we've ended up falling short and are behind on our rent.
I'm asking for help with our rent for the month that we couldn't pay due to my fiance being out of work. Like I said, normally we're able to budget for this type of thing thanks to both our incomes, but when we're just getting one income, it makes everything more difficult. Our kids will be heading back to school, and once that happens, I'll be able to get back to work. I've already got a few different options for work lined up and will be ready to go once I'm able. When we can get back to being a two-income household, we'll be completely self-sufficient again; however, until then we really need help if we're going to avoid falling too far behind to catch up. Getting this help would completely lift this burden and would get us through this pandemic without falling into and endless cycle of debt and poverty. On behalf of my entire family, I want to thank everyone who helps us for your kindness and generosity during our time of need.
