My youngest and I slept on the trampoline last night in a sleeping bag.

We looked at the stars and told stories until about 11, then fell asleep.

Kinda of a weird thing to do on a school night, but she wasn't cranky today.

Probably gonna do scary movie night outside on Saturday with our projector and inflatable screen.

It's just a damn good thing that Bart’s homeless people didn't stop by to steal your sleeping bags.

Wait until you don’t have to pay for daycare anymore. Then the savings REALLY begin. But then they start attending the money pit known as high school and you wish the only thing you had to pay for was daycare.

Yeah, we had a party to celebrate our "Kindergarten Raise."

Turns out, there are lots more other ways that kids suck your money. :cry:

So you guys have to pay for your kid's healthcare AND you don't have free/dirt cheap kindergartens?

Look, it's one of the reasons my wife and I had only one kid (she's 3 1/2 now) and we waited until we were late into our 30s, both making well over $100,000 per year. You can toss money at a kid problem and it works - had a nanny for awhile and that essentially outsourced the raising of our kid for a few years.

Now, she's in preschool at $1300 per month, but that's chump change when you think about it - what a great deal to go to work while someone watches her from 7 am to 6 pm.

I'm not saying money solves everything, but I am a firm believer at tossing money to ease the pain of raising a child and if that means waiting longer to have a kid so you can become more financially stable go for it.

I didn't mean for it to sound like that. Also, Given2Trade and a few others are the real $$ bosses of this place. lol

Cost of living is very very high in Greater Boston, so the salaries are inflated in many professions, too.

My original post was crass and I count my pennies - I still will have to work well past 65 to ever afford to retire. We're all fucked.

My 18 month old is starting to "help" with chores. He vacuums with his toy vacuum when I vacuum. He hands me the plates from the dishwasher when I put them away. It is adorable and really opens the door to ease my chore list down the road.
