$$$$$$$$

This is what is needed per month for formula, diapers, wipes....etc....

Mamaw Sue wanted to buy some baby formula to "help out".....I started calculating!!! OH MY GOSH!!!!


Formula at present is 2 cans per day for a total for $420.00 per month.(only to increase)
Diapers approx 15 per day....$120.00 per month
Baby wipes....to wipe those boodies.....approx $24.00 per month.....

Yesterday I helped little Mama take Prentiss and Luke to get a "shot" called Synagis...sp? anyway, it's to vaccinate against the RSV virus.....it cost a whoppin $1200 for one shot! $2400 for both shots. That is twelve HUNDRED dollars, not twelve dollars. They have to take this every month until the virus season has passed. Luke now weighs 11lbs,11oz. Prentiss weighs 10lbs,8oz.

So, if anyone is THINKING about having A BABY......CAUTION>>>>it could turn out differently than you expect. Now, mind you I am not complaining...just stating facts!!! YIKES!!!!!

Hello new friend*! I am so glad you found me, and you can bet I am going to add you to my bloglist and come back often now that I found you*! Congrats on the grandbabies*! Twins.....how exciting*!!!
It will be fun getting to watch them grow up via your blog. Thanks for inviting me.

Chickens as pets is some weird I know, and when my hubby first mentioned getting them I was wondering what the heck we were going to do with chickens*! (?) Turns out they're really kind of fun, and as I mentioned in the post, the fresh eggs are good*! LOL*

Thanks for adding me to your bloglist*! I look forward to hearing from you again. _Carol

When I think about the OCTO mom....makes me sick to see how she orchestrated all that!!!!

Oh, heck. I was trying to fix my misspelled words and somehow deleted the comment. Really didn't know you could do that. Anyway, I said - I can't imagine such expense! No matter how much you love the little fellas, numbers like those will take your breath away. At any rate, I'm so thankful you are soooo blessed and I am not!!! Just teasing. Remember, if God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. Stay warm. Sharon

Yes...it is expensive but they are worth it. My son knows what each diaper cost and where to get formula on sale each week. Target seems to have good prices. Connie
