I am being a calmer mother if it kills me. I think I see it working. Sometimes he just bursts my eardrum with his screaming and it drives me mad but I just try to take a deep breath and calm down.
It is also helping that I am finally opening my mouth and complaining a little that Baby Bun is a little too Mommy-centric, and needs to be more Daddy-centric.. as in.. get up off your butt and play with him so that he leaves me alone for a break and I don’t lose it.
It is really not fair to let a child cling to one parent (mother or father) constantly even if it is what the child wants and screams for it.
Make an effort to playfully take them away and play with them one-on-one to have some parent-only time so that they bond with you and give the other one a break.
Things are finally at a good balance of workload and responsibility now. I’m very happy.
Much happier than before.
INCOME = $0
Nada from my day job.
EXPENSES = $2511.37
The least I’ve spent thus far. I’m working on getting the food part down because I did gain a little weight.
Too many pastries = pastry shaped middle 😉
TOP 5 CATEGORIES SPENT
For the first time in a long while, clothes has not made it to the list.
DIVIDENDS TO DATE
I am going to start pushing this dividend income bit higher so that it starts becoming a viable source of income.
How cool would it be to live on just dividends starting… in 5 years? 100%?
What a goal. I’m getting excited.
NET WORTH = $495,352.72 or an increase of +$13,982.73 or +2.82%
My net worth is going up a little and kissing the $500,000 threshold which I am interested in reaching and keeping.
Considering $0 income? Not bad at all.
BABY BUN’S NET WORTH = $13,238.03 or an increase of +$515.65 or +3.90%
<3 my Baby Bun.
