I'm not trying to pick on you or anything, it just seems like something doesn't add up.
I make a little bit less than that low end (recently switched practice areas), and yes my child care expenses are a little more than $3k/month on average. I have a lot of kids.

Also my calculation includes that my husband doesn't have benefits and we'd be buying Exchange health insurance (which is particularly expensive, because we actually use it. )
