Children are not free, Children are expensive. I ran into someone today who pointed this out for me. Children cost so much money, my kids need this and want that, Nappie's and Formula every week, blah blah blah. All this was pointed out to me today from a parent of 2 young ones. Well guess what, your lucky you have children to spend money on, your lucky you haven't spend $6,000 on trying to get a child to then spend money on, and still not have one. So what do I think about you telling me how much children cost, I think your one damn lucky person to have 2 special expensive people who bleed you dry of all your saving's and keep you up all night and generally rule your every though, but at the end of the day tell you they love you. oh poor you!
So children aren't free, but dreams are. And I have these all the time. My latest one is receiving amazing news of a positive result on the 24th Dec, and being able to go to my parent's for Christmas, walking through the door and telling them that we have the best Xmas gift ever for them, that they are going to be grandparents. I dream of not being able to drink over the Christmas season and feeling great about that, when people ask me why im not having a glass of wine, to finally be able to say those words to them. I dream of ringing Gardener Guy's Parents who live in England and telling them they will be grandparents. I dream of ringing my 3 closest friend's and screaming down the phone that im pregnant, and them being so happy and excited for me. But most of all I dream of the day when I can look at my husband and say the words "your going to be a dad".
Dreams are free right, I hope my dream's become a reality, then I can moan about how much children cost.
