Oh...the family budget woes

So tonight Bigger Baby and I worked on our family budget.
OUCH.
Not fun to do on a Friday night. More Wine Please!!!

Where does it all go?
Two kids...expensive
Day Care...expensive
LIFE...EXPENSIVE

I mean honestly, its really sad when the only way to help out would be to actually be the one in one billion odds person that wins the lottery. However, looking at my budget I am not able to actually play the lottery so therefore, it does not look like I will be winning.

And yes, we crunched the numbers...I must remain a working mother.

HOWEVER...silver lining...
We will be debt free if we stick to this budget in two years and can then start actually preparing for OUR retirement future and their college education. Until then...we have to pay back before we can put back.

I think a visit with Boss Man may be in order...
Again, more wishful thinking.

However, I know there are people in far worse situations that we are in and therefore...we KNOW we are very , VERY lucky!!!!
I have two beautiful children, a great husband, a good job, an awesome family, a nice house...I am blessed.

But I will admit, a little extra moo-lah would be nice.
