Maddox’s schooling

Hello.  You'll see most of this in my video, but I'll break it down for you.  I have a smart, talented, witty three year old son named Maddox.  His mother and I are in the middle of a pretty nasty divorce.  I really thought I had found my one and only, turns out I was wrong.  Throughout all of this, I am responsible for her rent and mine, all the bills, all the negative accounts, all my sons food, etc.. I have little help, and this split has devastated my finances.  I have the little man all the time and got him enrolled in school five days a week so I can still work.  It's an amazing school called Little Sunshine"s Playhouse.  He loves going!  It's pricey, but he has excelled rapidly since he has been enrolled.  I can not afford it anymore, and can't take out any more loans.  Eventually I plan to move to the suburbs, and get him in a new, more affordable school, but neither one of us are ready for another upheaval.  My son is going through this divorce as well, and has seen some awful things.  He is not ready for more drastic change.  I'm trying my best to be dad and mom, be stern and soft, to level him out into a routine again.  It breaks my heart every second of every day.  The school is 300$ a week, and can only be paid in monthly amounts.  Heaven forbid another 5 week month!  Yeah, $1,500.00 up front.  Impossible for me to do right now.  So I'm asking for help.  It's not easy for me to do,,,at all.  For my son however, I would lay down my life.  He is my world, and all I have left.  So until the dust settles, and we heal, I need him to keep the last piece of normality from the life he had before.   Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to listen.  Please watch our video.  I enjoyed making it, watching him grow up again.  Blake.
