Not so much with my first, but when I had my second and had two in diapers I definitely felt it.

I really didn't until preschool. Dishing out for it was our most expensive bill but so worth it.

Not really, no, except for having to take an eight week leave instead of a six, because my manager forgot to send my papers in!

No. I have four kids and it was a minor impact with each kid

Yes. I was working full time, and when we had the baby I became a sahm. We lost an entire income. We budgeted and knew we could afford to do it. But we had to make a lot of changes. Not really much disposable income anymore. But it's worth it to be able to stay home with her. It's all about priorities.

Not really, no. I was broke before, I was broke after, no big difference there.
