Bunk beds allowed me to maximize the space that we had so that each of my children were able to sleep…Continue

Nothing is worse than having your credit card declined, especially when you're trying to buy your family subway passes at a kiosk under Times Square surrounded by early morning commuters.
Don't get me wrong, the people around us were very understanding, if misguided in assuming we'd run up our line of credit. I think someone did offer to help pay our fare in the confusion, but just about everyone else was focused on catching their train.
It didn't help that when you're that far…Continue

Every parent has a different way of parenting their children. There is no right or wrong way; however, many parents find that they have to tailor their parenting styles depending how their children respond to our guidance.

But, when children are three, four and five years old, it’s not surprising or…Continue

I've never lived a lavish life. Even when I was at the height of tattooing, I could pull down maybe $1000 in one weekend, I'd always turn around and either stock the house with food, or buy the kids much needed clothes, or pay the bills for the entire month. I wouldn't say I'm bad with money, but I'd be lying if I said I had a savings account with even a dime in it.
So budgeting has always been a part of my life. Sometimes the budget has allowed for 'fun money', sometimes the kids…
