You give a little, you get a lot

Every Sunday morning, I give my son his allowance. He does a little song and dance he made up and races to his room to put the money into his three jars. So far, he's completely understood the purpose of his spend and save jars, but we haven't done much with his give jar. He knows that he has that jar in order to give back to the world, but we were…

Women breadwinners don't have time to cheat

My husband and I have always had a dual-income household. We are fortunate to both have jobs that we truly enjoy. There have been a few times in the past where one of us was out of work and financially dependent on the other person, which naturally lead to stress in our relationship. But we got through it (for better or worse, right?) and moved ahead. At no point during those times did one of us consider cheating on the…

You're a mom forever

On Sunday morning, my son greeted me by saying, "Good morning! I get my allowance today, right?" After his morning routine, I handed him his cash for the week and he went to distribute it into his three jars. He then starting telling me what he was going to use his spend money on (a Batman action figure of some kind) and what he was going to use his save money on (a…

Money talks

At about this time last year, I wanted to introduce my son to money. But it was too early for him, as evidenced by the fact he would still mix the play money in his cash register with the real thing. So, we took a step back and waited.…

When money matters

Like most parents, I try to do activities with my son that do not cost lots of money. I'll get him to go on a bike ride with me instead of taking him to the bouncy house. He'll play guitar with his Daddy at home, rather than go to a music instructor. We play a lot of board games.…

5 things I learned this Halloween.

1. Picking a costume is so much easier when you have kids.

         I used to have so much trouble choosing my costumes, but you know who has no trouble at all choosing my costumes? MY SON.  He is very opinionated when it comes to what I wear, Halloween or not.

 Like a lot of 6 year old boys this year, my son chose to be a ninja turtle. Micheal Angelo, to be exact.  Of course, he wanted me to be April O'Neil, and since I'm pregnant, I had to get a little… Continue

The Real Scoop on Making Money Blogging and How I Did it

In the blogging world matters of money are all so very hush hush.  I decided it was time for someone to come forward and share what they were earning and how they went about earning money from their blog. 

I believe that if we really want to help each other we should become more transparent and give people realistic expectations of what blogging entails and that with a little hard work you can actually make…

Nickle and diming the kids

My son is a picky dresser.

I've not been allowed to pick out his clothing for at least two years. Yes, I supply him with enough neutral pants/shorts so he generally matches, but it is quite clear that I am not allowed to pick out his shirts. If he needs new clothes, then he is picking them…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
