10 Things You Will Spend Money On Once You’re Done Paying For Daycare
6. More Groceries Because Your Kids Eat Everything
Oh God, since when do first graders pack away as much food as a 200-lb. man? The older they get, the more I have to buy. Last week was well over $200 and the cupboards were looking lean after three days. They never.stop.eating.
7. Birthday Gifts For All The Parties Your Kids Go To
Even if you only do a handful of the parties your kids get invited to and spend $15-20 on a gift, that adds up quickly. Your second grader has as more active social life than you do!
8. New Car Because You Can’t Drive Your Kid’s AND Their Friends In Yours
We are heading into the phase where my kids want to bring friends home from school or have a friend spend the night at Nana and Papa’s camp. My backseat is getting squished, I may have to cave and get a mini-van.
9. Big Kid Toys
As your kids get older, the toys and games they want get more expensive. American Girl dolls, tablets, video game systems- holy shit, it never ends.
We had an appointment for our seven year old recently and the dentist said she would almost certainly need braces one day. Better take it out of the Tahiti account.
