One of my favorite meals that my husband makes me is Chicken and Dumplings. However, there are days when he just doesn’t have time to be in the kitchen cooking. I wanted to take his recipe and find a way to bring it to the crock pot so that we could fix it and forget it. This has been great for sick days or days when we just need a comfort food. I have to tell you, I am now in love with this crock pot chicken and dumplings recipe!
Not every financial season is going to be easy. In fact, there will be hard ones. There will be days when you say no because things just don’t fit int he budget. When kids are younger they may not pick up on this but as they get older they may start to notice. Before long, you may hear the question, “are we broke?” While the old school of thought is to keep finances quiet there is a way to balance talking about money with kids. I want to share a few things we do even on our tightest days.
Are We Broke? – Talking About Money With Kids
Have you ever looked at the budget and broken down? Has there ever been a day when it just doesn’t add up? A week? A longer season? I have been there. It’s so hard when no matter what work you put in, the finances just don’t add up. It can be even harder as a homeschool mom to struggle with money. There are so many opportunities out there for homeschool children if you can afford them. The hardest thing can be telling your child no to something they want to do because you just can’t swing it. It gets even harder when their homeschool friends can do these great things while they can’t. I wanted to share some encouragement and tips for homeschooling when you are broke.
