  • Published: August 23, 2021

Ready, Set, Baby! Financial Planning Tips For Parenthood By Susan Doktor The joy I felt when I was expecting my first child—or children, as it turned out, because I gave birth to twins—was unlike any feeling I’d ever experienced before. I remember painstakingly picking out fabrics for the handmade quilts I commissioned for my son’s cribs. Fantasizing and eventually agonizing over what to name my boys. (For a while, before we knew they were boys, we called them Mango and Kiwi—go figure.) We documented my ever-growing belly with monthly photos.

It’s wasn’t all booties, bottles, and baby…Read More
