Was strollying Salon and found this Q/A with the author of Parenting, Inc. It gave me and J a chance to really talk through how we spend our $ on things baby/parenting related. I think after 5 months of parenthood, we've seen ourselves consciously resisting the urge to sign up for many workshops that don't seem essential and resisting the marketing out there to "buy" what's necessary for our child to get ahead. It's all about coming back to the basics I guess. It's an exercise in discipline and because of our small home, not getting anything unless it's absolutely necessary or can fit into limited storage space.
