In today's America a new mother not only has to navigate lists of potential baby names, top-rated carseats and strollers, choose between bottle or breast, and make a place in her home for a new little person, but she needs to dig heavily into her finances to accomplish that. If her employer doesn't offer paid maternity leave, she must decide how long she can stay home with the baby, then how much childcare will cost when she returns.
So, you say your husband is perfect except in this one area and that you are the only one bothered by the situation.

It opens windows to the world, bringing awareness of other worlds.
