With Mr. Candy
Not being the creative one in the family, I could never hope to capture in words the joy and happiness I experienced when I first saw Skylar. The love I feel in my heart is indescribable. However, as the “economical” one in the family (some less “economical” would say “cheap”), I am unfortunately fully capable of calculating the cost of Skylar. Even though she’s of course priceless, the pain I feel in my wallet is all too calculable.
Candy will undoubtedly be sharing the joy and happiness in our hearts, so I will share something less precious: the pain in our bank account. A pain that is especially acute when thinking about the cost of college when Skylar is due to attend. As a consultant, I ask that you indulge my love for finance (some less “financially minded” would say my “inner geek”) and allow me to share that pain with you in my native tongue (that would be bullet points and charts).
Ed. note: This budget reallocation has NOT been approved by Candy. To hell with electricity and water, I say — Mama needs a new pair of shoes and margarita fix!
