We have been enjoying life on a budget. We are living a very fun and lavish life within reason. You know you're doing good when you hear this:
Pear: "Mom, we need to buy bandaids because we don't have any and I have a scratch."
Me: "Yes Pear. We do need to buy bandaids."
Pear: "Last time, we didn't buy them because I got a dress instead. Today we can take the dress back and get bandaids instead!"
