Thanks jp, we'll have to stick together!
We've both wanted a little girl for as long as I can remember now and when we found out it's a girl we were both ecstatic (still are!).

It's funny jacob would link to that climate article because this is something I'm struggling with now that I know she's on the way. Not really that I'm burdening the planet anymore (we're only plannng on one child), but more for her own well being later in life. I've found myself wondering what I can do to make her life easier in a world that's going to be falling apart.
Thanks vexed! I appreciate your words of wisdom. I bet you've done more thinking about it than even I have and certainly more reading. I'll have to pick that book up at the library. I hope your little one is doing well.
Fun stuff!7Wannabe5 wrote: ↑Thu Oct 11, 2018 11:22 amCongratulations!
Ditto what jennypenny said about DIY and no worries This year you will be hanging cloth diapers out to dry, and 30 years from now you will be giving her advice on how to best clean out the gutters on her own new home (sigh-cue Joni Mitchell.)
Thanks to both of you!
Is that because the closer you are the more motivated you are to have a higher savings rate or because you also count investment income as savings?FBeyer wrote: ↑Wed Nov 07, 2018 3:37 amInitially I was kinda stumped at the 93% savings rate and then I had one of those 'herpetty FI-math derp Batman' the closer you get to FI the more your savings rate approaches 100, it's kind of inevitable!
11 weeks is nothing! Whatever you expect from parenting: It's not going to be like that. Corrolary: You don't know what free time is, until you have children.
Congratulations to the both of you.
The 93% was without investment income, I guess I hadn't thought of including that. We just don't spend much money and I also got paid a little extra this month for reasons unknown to me actually.
