Did I really just spend $100 on diapers and wipes? You do realize that is $1200 over the next year? You do realize that you could have spent that money on a trip to somewhere...anywhere. You do realize that $100 dollars worth of diapers and wipes also means roughly 30 hours of your life spent changing those 350 diapers that came in those two boxes.
Yes. I realize it. I often think of the quote by Anne Campbell.
“You are the trip I did not take, you are the pearls I could not buy,
you are my blue Italian lake, you are my piece of foreign sky.
You are my Honolulu moon, you are the book I did not write,
you are my heart's unuttered tune, you are a candle in my night.
You are the flower beneath the snow, in my dark sky a bit of blue,
answering disappointment's blow with "I am happy! I have you!”
I realize it. On the fifth baby I weighed all the pros and cons of having another baby in our home. In the end...David, I am happy I have you. Nothing else even compares.
