Children - damn expensive

For those of us without children this probably isn't a shock, but for those with kids, a warning, that little adorable human apparently in its first five years of its life will cost you about £53,000, yep you read it right, £53K, that is a lot of money.

Now I know you can't put a price on a child's head, but wow, what are they feeding them, and how on average are they managing to chew up that much money. It might explain why a lot of parents after having their little ball of joy, end up drained, looking like hell, and that is before they see the financial hit.

Don't get me wrong, I think children can be lovely, heck I want to have kids in the future, though after seeing this figure of average for the first 5 years, I think I am going to have to either get out a loan in advance or get a very high paid job.

Here is the article to show what I mean, amazing, that those little cherrubs can be so draining on the wallet
