I like to say that paying off our debt wasn't about what we did but what we didn't do. I thought I would share a few things we didn't do.
1. We didn't move into the fanciest house. I have talked before about how much I dislike where we live. I have struggled with contentment here. It's an old house, we manually have to fill the dishwasher with water. We have to run a dehumidifier constantly and our laundry room isn't even in the house. But the rent here is easily $300 a month less than other houses of the same size. And those houses have no yards. And we love to play in the yard at this house.
I live with two toddlers. That means four little curious hands. 20 little mischievous fingers. They want to touch, push, pull and turn everything.
And that's okay. That's how humans learn. So learn away little ones.
Jason and I made the boys this simple sensory board using items like a doorknob, hinges, locks, a light and a door stop.
