Now a Mommy Blog

I gave birth to my twins by cesarean section on Friday. So I expect this will turn into a mommy blog simply because that's where my attention is going to be focused. But I'm still cheap, so I don't think it will be much about how cute my babies look in their matching designer onsies.

My first big issue - to 529 or not to 529? On the one hand, it's tax deferred. On the other hand, what are the chances it won't be counted toward financial aid packages in 18 years?

For the record, if you are having twins, the first week is every bit as difficult as the baby books said that it would be. Be sure to have the help lined up beforehand, because you'll be too exhausted to do it afterwards.


  1. Congratulations! You do realize we need pictures of your babies :)

    As for the 529...I don't know. A lot of things could change between now and then. Maybe set it up, put a little bit of money in there, and let family/friends know that's an option if they're in a gift-giving mood! I figure even if it does count against an aid package, I don't think the amount "lost" by having the 529 would outweigh the amount you have in the 529.

  2. Congratulations!!!! :) Ain't nothing wrong with a mommy blog! ;) I'd love to see sweet angelic baby pics too.... *sigh*

  3. Ps - My blog addy is changed now...


  4. Congratulations! I hope you're all doing well :)

    I don't know much about 529s, but the way I see it, saving something, somewhere, is always better than nothing.

  5. Congratulations, LG!
    I wondered over here again, and delighted that you're back to posting.
