The cost of being a mom.

My friends and I were gawking over my playroom and brought up the real price of being a mom, so here's what I am saying... It is dang expensive! JUST for Brynlee so far is $4,000 birth, $1000 for her nursery, $100/month for clothes, at least $2000 on toys, $2000 for Disneyland and So, So, SO much more! She is an expensive girl, but I love her enough I'd give her the world. What do you think your bill is at so far?

    I'd say it's probably pretty high, diapers and formula cost quite a bit of money. But we try to save where ever we can, we don't buy a bunch of excessive toys and try and shop sales and use coupons. It was definitely costly buying a crib and that sort of stuff but we got stuff that will last a long time and grow with her, we were fortunate enough to get a lot of major items for our shower and we made sure to get them in neutral colors so we can use them for #2 and not have to buy more.

    We will save up for vacations and such when we can take them that will be fun you can't put a price on memories like that! but I do like to save money!
