I am continuing with the TpT seller challenge this week. The challenge is titled "Dare to Dream."
To be honest, I am completely starting over with blogging and TpT since being pregnant last year and having my baby 7 months ago. I just couldn't do it all anymore and let it go. But if I had to dream again about what TpT would do for me, here they are.
Now, I do currently stay home with my baby. I did this past school year and will the next. I'm just not sure how long I can do it for. If I had my choice, it would be until she starts school. Or at least preschool part time or something. I don't want to send her to daycare before she can talk!
But, I like to spoil her a lot...so that's why I say I'm not sure how long we can afford for me to stay home. I imagine that having a child only gets more expensive as they get older.
I hated having to work while in college and then pay back loans after. My husband went for his doctorate and we just paid off his EXTREME loans. It really annoyed me having to pay for that every month. So I want to save as much for her as possible so she can do what she wants and not have money holding her back. We save a certain amount each month and my husband invests it.
I'm already planning our first trip to Disney World for September 2017. I know, crazy right? But it's just before baby girl turns 3, so she's still free but will be much older and able to enjoy it more than now. If I can wait that long...I've been reading up. I want to make enough money so that we can go on vacation every year, in addition to flying back home to see family.
Finally, and most pressing, is that I want an SUV!! Both my husband and I have cars right now and it's a pain with a baby, car seat, stroller, etc. He basically wants the money saved BEFORE we buy it. Which I get, but still don't like. His solution to everything is spend less...my solution to everything is make more money. Two different philosophies. But both get the job done, right?!
