Tonight, I’ve been getting our tax stuff ready and adding up all the $$$ we spent on kid dance classes and kid soccer and kid swimming and kid school and just generally ALL OF THE KID THINGS – and then daycare for the kid while we’re at work earning money to pay for ALL OF THE KID THINGS listed earlier in this sentence.
And you know what? It makes me feel really, really lucky. Lucky to have a (kind of expensive) kid. Lucky that Geoff & I both have jobs that we love, with some built in flexibility to get to spend time with our kid – when she has time for us, of course. Lucky to be living this life.
IT’S ALL GOOD.
(Now, it will be even better if I manage a refund for the first time in FOREVER…)
