No one tells you how expensive kids are! They tell you how cute, adorable, high-maintenance, loving, and sometimes exhausting they are, but no one gives you inside information about how their bank account looks drastically different after giving birth. Our sweet baby is five and boy is she draining our assets. We’ve got AWANA’s, horseback riding lessons, dance class, Perfectly Polished etiquette class, and new Sketchers every two months for growing feet. Baby girl is more expensive than her mommy! Tommy suggested we try to lower our monthly payments on bills and utilities by cutting costs elsewhere. He’s always hounding me to turn out the lights in a room I’m not in, but now I see why. I think we’re going to try to hit up http://www.texaselectricityproviders.com and see if we can’t get a better deal on power rates. Maybe combined, those two will save us some bucks. Have you guys had any luck with that? Regardless, we wouldn’t change our lives for anything. I’m willing to give up yearly trips to Nordstrom if it means I’ll have pictures of my girl riding a horse for the first time.
