Dear Yours Truly Readers,
OK… I asked about your opinion from my previous blog, “Set in Your Own Ways” about starting a family.
My girlfriend delivered her 3rd baby last October 2014. I was finally able to talk to her for a good length of time (uninterrupted, mind you!). Unfortunately, her 3rd baby is colicky – so finding time to talk has been a challenge.
In the course of our conversation, I heard her husband say in the background, “I can’t believe Sammy (the new baby) used a ton of diapers this week…GOSH! I need a second job to pay for her diapers!”
Alright… in my mind, “Well…that’s an exaggeration!” But then again I thought, “Is he for real? Oh my heaven!”
As I’ve shared, Chad and I are the last couple amongst our friends who do not have a baby yet. And it made me wonder is it really that expensive to raise a child…I mean c’mon…what do babies eat and wear…and why will it cost that much?
So I did my research…and I was in it for a surprise! Boy, to raise one child in this world, Chad and I really have to put a good chunk of money away. 🙂
Do you have a budget you follow? Can you shed some light for me? 🙂
Til next time!
