Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'
- Bob Dylan
Sarah and I have become convinced that the best thing to do in this time of our life is for the her to stay home and raise the baby - we really don't want to go to the expense, trouble, and risk that daycare presents. So, what we need is to figure out how to afford living without Sarah's income. One way is that we are trying to sell my car (contact me if you're interested) and think of ways for Sarah to work from home to just bring in some extra discretionary bucks. On top of that, we are praying for a miracle that will allow us to buy a house and not be sunk by an unrealistic mortgage payment...we don't want much, do we?!
Actually, from you the reader, we actually don't want much - only your prayers!
Here's what my car is (just add tinted windows)
We're really enjoying little Chloë these days. Our routine is starting to settle in. Sarah is really a great mother and we are growing closer every day as parents and partners! Chloë has the most spectacular smile - it's so big and wide and her eyes twinkle (she's definitely got her mother's eyes)! It's amazing what God can do through children.
