money tree

I feel like a money tree. This week is just horrible and everytime I turn around Anna needs more money. She is getting enrolled in swim classes($50), cheerleading($185), school picturs($40), summer clothes($250), field trip($12), money to take on the field trip($20). All this needs to be done in the next two weeks. In the meantime who knows what might happen to my car.

I am going to go take a look at my bank account books and cry now!

Cheerleading 185 dollars! Tink just finsihed three months of cheerleading and it cost 60 dollars! Where do you live girl? And as for the school pics. I never let my kids get them taken at school. They are so expensive. At JC pennys I can get them for five dollars a sheet and they always turn out better than school pics anyway.

Now the swim lessons and clothes look about the same as I have to pay. I feel for ya girl! Kids are expensive! I guess theres something to be said for having ony one! LOL

I am sooo glad that I only have one. I don't understand how some people can afford so many kids. I work with a girl who had 7 children. There is no way I could do that.

Hey Dawn, I totally understand how you feel. It's ridiculous how expensive sports, etc, are. They want kids to participate, and then make it financially impossible for the parents to afford it.

Just think, I have three of them! And the older they get, the more money (and stuff that costs money...alot of money!) they want.

Just hang in...we'll survive this somehow!

Hey girl! I know how you feel. Obviously my money isn't going to children but there sure is an abundance of people asking for it.

Hey, I'm noy sure I understood everything right about Anna and James. But I can tell you No, the court systems don't and can't and don't bother to keep up on everything. You have to find out things and do your own detective work.

Your current money problem? Can't you cut out the cheerleading? isn't 8 a little young? My daughter was a cheerleader in High school and they did those camps for little girls, but it was also a way for the bigger girls to earn money they needed for THEIR stuff. We thought it was kind of silly, but my daughter loved teaching the littler girls and we kind of thought they were rich people's kids. Girls don't even get to cheerlead till what Junior High?
Maybe their is some other YMCA (cheaper) sport thing she could do in the meantime? Or a teenage babysitter who is also a cheerleader? Just some ideas...

It just never ends does it?

Thanks for your comment. The whole James and Anna thing would take awhile to explain.....

I had Anna in cheerleading when she was 6 and she loved it. She cheered for the 6-8 year old football team. They had a compition at the end of the year also.

I am trying to keep Anna active this summer. I do not mind paying the money for her....just why does it all hit at once??? :)

Oh well, welcome to motherhood right?
