Creating our NEW family budget

Creating our NEW family budget 


For the first 30 years of my life, I have only had to worry about my finances – mine and mine alone.  Then I got married and had to readjust my money mindset, to being transparent and open financially. 

2018, enter in our baby.

Becoming a parent is the most life-changing event that many will experience. You are suddenly not only responsible for yourself, but also another person who depends on you for everything.

Since his first day on this earth our son, Azai, has been the an indescribable joy in our lives and an unexplainable love in our hearts. But, he has also wracked up a pretty penny as soon as he exited the womb. From hospital bills, to insurance fees, to lactation consultants, and more. No matter how prepared you are, there are always a few surprises that are sure to catch you off guard with a baby. 

I want to share my checklist with you of things we needed to handle when Azai was born. My adulting has reached a whole new level so quickly, lol. I would love to hear your feedback and additions to this list. 

P.S. Also, another tip in the world of money, is to freeze your child’s credit for now. This will keep any identity theft from happening, since you are usually not actively paying attention to a young human’s financial reports.
