I wish I had known that 9 months in, I would still be working a second job in order to survive. I wish I had known that I would always be broke. I wish I had known how hard it would be to work with the food program. I wish I had just stayed an unlicensed provider with my original 4 kids. I had a lot of ideas and goals when I started, and that has all gone in the garbage as I just try to survive one more day.
