    I too thought $24.24 a day sounded cheap. Kids are "Simply" amazing, where else are you allowed to be a teacher and a student at the same time.

    Then again, I still enjoy hanging out with my father, so myabe it just runs in the family.

    Dr., wow, I'm flattered. Yes, I'd say my children will have a significantly higher price tag than the average. Thank goodness the love is free.

    C'mon Dave! How many dollars worth of chew toys does Dixie go through in the average week? I've seen the pics...


    Lots of unexpected costs arise with kids... $24 a day? Well I've never done the math as it doesn't really matter. They are still a better investment than anything else.

    Some things you just can't put a price on. And some things don't fully make sense until you try it yourself. I would put parenthood at the top of that list.
