Is it worth the battle?
My husband lost his job a few months ago and luckly I was able to support the family(that includes the 2 step kids and 1 infant who is ours together) with my income. He finally found a job but it is nothing like he was making before...we are getting by but nothing to write home about.
Middle school Homecoming is coming up and I was informed last night that the sd had picked out her dress from homecoming a $300.00 dress!!!! and we needed to pitch in and pay and also for nails and hair! First and formost, I AM NOT trying to get out of this.....I think my husband should help pay for it because he in the father.
My question is...Shouldnt the mother and father discuss the price they are willing to spend before the dress was purchases? We are in a tight situation and I think the mother just let the daughter pick out what ever.
THe child is in middle school...this is not even high school.
I just feel like I get shafted in so many ways.
How should I approach my husband. I dont want to sound like I dont want to help, but we are barely making it and I did not budget a $200 haming event into the budget....I could have if it was planned more that 2 weeks out!
