Never waking up again at 6 am to commute, never again worrying more about someone else’s bottom line, never missing another one of your baby’s firsts… never (ever) smiling like you mean it (but really, really, not meaning it) – when you’d rather just flat out punch the guy in the throat? (I worked in customer service. Can you tell?)
I’d be willing to bet you’ve thought about it.
Calling all new mommas –
There’s an internet marketing company called Mother’s Lounge, and they are tryin’ to get you to BUY.
They are legit, and they use awesome “loss leaders” (where the company might actually lose money on something) to get you shopping. As a marketing tactic, it’s proven to work.
Are babies REALLY that expensive? A while back I had a comment on one of my debt free living posts… something to the effect of we “wouldn’t still be debt free after we had kids, because kids are so expensive.” (I was pretty pregnant when I read that comment, so it hit closer to home than it might have a few months before.)
Now, let’s not pretend that I have been on top of things these past few (or 6) months. I’ve already admitted to you guys that I, queen of credit-cards-are-your-best-friends-if-you-use-them-right, have been dropping balls all over the place. I got my husbands Worker’s Comp Insurance cut off because I forgot to pay the bill, we got fined by the CRA because I forgot to file sales tax, and yes, I paid interest on a credit card…twice. I am blaming this on pregnancy and baby brain, and not admitting any fault at all, thankyouverymuch.
~ I'm on a new adventure with the Squishy Baby, figuring out this mommy thing one day at a time. Raising little people while keeping our homes and finances under control might be a challenge, but it's one I'm excited to tackle... and I want to encourage you to tackle it too.
