Three Children

Contributed by Milford Woods

My husband and I have two children, and we just found out we have another one on the way. Surprise! This isn’t something we were planning on, but we could not be more excited about it. We love the idea of having a big, crazy family. We both come from big families and have incredible memories of growing up surrounded by siblings. They’re built-in best friends, really, and we’re so happy that our children will have the same memories when they get older. The only downside to having a large family is that the costs start adding up very quickly. Our kids grow like weeds and it feels like we are constantly buying new clothes. The addition of a third who will be in diapers for the foreseeable future is making us just a little nervous. So we’re cutting costs wherever we can. We’ve started to stock money away as much as possible to help offset the additional costs that come along with another baby. One of the easiest things we’ve done is call deals from Shop electricity rates Texas to save some money on our natural gas costs. It was so simple to make the switch, and we’ve already seen cost savings. We’re going to use some of the extra money to decorate the nursery for the new baby. We can’t wait to meet the little one!
