Children's activities are expensive.
Just thought I'd put that out there.
I'm in the process of paying for a camp for my oldest son that's about $2000. The Tae Kwon Do place where I send my youngest son after school is over $400 a month, and I feel like there's not enough mac & cheese and hot dogs in the world to keep my budget afloat.
I want to give my kids what they need to succeed, but I'm scared I'm running out of money. It will be better this summer because I'll get a break from paying after school care. It will also be better in a year when my youngest son reaches middle school age. There's a light at the end of the tunnel, but some days it looks endlessly far off. Like today.
What if the darkness in the tunnel grows so thick that I get lost?
What if there's another tunnel at the end of this one that never ends?
Does anyone else feel like this?
Please tell me it gets easier.
