This House Is Our Home


My husband and I have always wanted a lot of kids. (Of course, “a lot” is a relative term, depending what your social circles look like, but for the purpose of this post, we’re going to call “a lot” more than 3. Ha.) Over the last 6 years, when we’ve made our feelings known, we’ve often been met with one particular phrase: Kids are so expensive!!

Well, on the one hand, I suppose they are. Depending on your particular situation – medical bills, dental care, school tuition, etc. all definitely add up.

  1. Wonderful article Cheree!
    I read the “original” .
    Thought provoking…it should make some look at WHY they feel the need to replace or fill the time spent with their children with “things”.
    We do have to take a look at what our own issues are as parents, what we feel we may have been/is “lacking” in our own childhood, or life and not try to fill what would be our own voids, through our children with material items and not what truly matters to them..our time, patients and love.
    Children, kids, teens..when being raised knowing that they are loved, wanted and secure..they really do grow feeling fulfilled with family .They want us, parents, family..not things…truly.
    Thank you so much for the article.
    Sincerely, Danielle
