Taking a moment to think about the meaning of this day. . .

@christoperj:

Apparently a 2x3 plastic box, pad, and baby blanket for 3 nights amounts to $5,231.85 of room and board charges at THR Denton, despite how Maddie was always in the same room as us as Alicia recovered (and how that room and board was separately worth $23,498.35)

Sure, why not.

So far, we're up to $35,409.55 for the cost of having a munchkin in Denton.

Very thankful we can afford reasonable insurance that knocks the total down 45% after discount, and the actual copay/coinsurance total from my wallet (so far) to just $967.06 + whatever this 5K claim ultimately amounts to.

No matter what the politics of the conversation might be, can't we all at least agree there should be a better solution -- one that balances the cost of the care, against the reasons for needing to receive it?

So the science experiment using vinegar + salt + dish soap as an effective pet-friendly weed killer seems to work.

Awesome -- Goodbye roundup.

Forget what I said about Mylicon. I'm now convinced Gripe Water is the best thing medical science has ever created.

Hands down.

A little bit of karmic poetry today, given that our first 'rightful' Mother's day is also our wedding anniversary. . .

Good times

@christoperj:

(Somewhat) seriously considering an email to @SarahMcLachlan explaining all 3 of my minions were rescued from tragic beginnings and how I make a monthly donation to the Denton Animal Support Foundation -- as reasons why I should be exempted from ever having to see her ASPCA commercials again. . .

Whatever your political leaning, this administration continues to be the best thing to further the art of journalism in at least 20+ years. . .

Holy crackers

So apparently the cost of having a baby in Denton is $30,401.51 (not including claims pending submission and before insurance reviews/approves/discounts). . . Good to know

Clearly, the Denton Tax District is enamored with Fort Marcinko, based on this statement I'm looking at. I'll happily consider their offer if they care to send it as a check vs. a bill.

One word - Mylicon. Thirty days in, and I'm convinced this is the best thing medical science has ever created. . .
