Hello and welcome to A Way With Wards, our family-building without budget-busting blog. We decided to start this blog for a couple of reasons:
- As a new family (our only child is 5 months old) we haven’t had a ton of time for old hobbies, and needed a creative outlet.
- We spent a ton of time learning as much as we could about starting a family, and want to share what we were able to learn with others to make their transition into parenthood easier. Everything from how to repurpose or make DIY baby gadgets, to ways to budget around a family.
When we had Rowan we both knew that our lives would be changing, but we had no idea how much. Prior to his birth we both worked full time, and while we were by no means wealthy, we definitely had an easier time budgeting. We’ve since gone down to a single source of income, and have had to adapt and find some creative ways to budget to make sure our baby boy is happy, healthy, and well cared for.
We’re super excited to share our ongoing journey with you, and to pass along any valuable information we learn along the way. After all, it takes a village!
