By now you all know that I like to budget and save money. I'm getting really good at it. Our friends are just starting out getting credit and beginning a life together so we are trying to give them helpful tips. Like start with a small credit card and pay it off every month. And put everything in the bank that you can when you can. If anyone has similar advice for them just let me know. Heck even other budget advice let me know for us too

This week was a little sad. We had 2 missing children in our area. One was found save and alive, the birth mother kidnapped her. The other was not a happy ended. This world is so awful. Who would want to hurt children. People make me sick. You can't trust people today. At least one of the kids survived. Its such a shame about the other one. Hold your kids tight and love them a bunch and never take them for granite

I'm just gald Leif is getting excited about babies now.

Its getting so hot outside. Thats the upside and downside of living in Georgia. You love the summer for beaches, pool time, water parks, and playgrounds but then you get dressed to go to work and you have a wet spot on your back because your car was baking all day, not cool man. Lucky for kids they can just go play in the sprinklers all day long.

Okay so we are getting more comfortable talking about kids. Leif doesn't freak out anymore everytime we talk about it. Mostly because we already have a baby fund. All he needed was a plan so he would calm down. I still feel that the closer we get to a baby the more planning and freaking out there will be but what are the big worry items that future parents should plan for.

So I was at work last night trying to fix the stapler and ended up stapling one of my fingers all the way through. Yes I know that takes talent. It makes me wonder how accident prone our kids are going to be. Leif loves sports so he has had plenty of accidents and twisted ankles and I'm uncoordinated. Our kids are going to end up wrapped in bubbles.

Find something that they can use a lot of energy on so they can use so most of it. Twister will keep them up and moving. What are some more inside activities for kids to keep them using their imagination and energy.

When you become a parent a little switch should flick on that says you have to take care of someone else. You would think that would include some form of common sense. I when to walmart yesterday and these people that don't know who to raise there children were everywhere. Kids walking with no shoes on. Kids walking around with no adult. Correct me if I'm wrong but little kids should not be on their own let alone not wearing shoes. Low and behold you always see the parents eventually, looking at something with all their might then yell for the kids to behave themselves from 3 rows over. Some people just shouldn't procreate
