free & clear

Yeah, baby! Next Tuesday is gonna’ be HUGE at our house. After one final payment of $1,045.37, Cooper Michael Falk will be ours, all ours, free and clear.

Though it seemed iffy (ok, more like a definite) at times (many, many times) during the past 10 months as we plowed through thousands of dollars of baby debt, I’m thrilled to report there will be no harassing phone calls, no hate letters, no big, smelly repo man banging on our door threatening to take Coop back to the hospital for failure to pay.

We did it, he's almost paid off and never once did he have to go without diapers/wipes/food/clothes/toys/medicine/shampoo/soap/bouncers/swings in order to make that happen!

That baby ain't going nowhere (except to his crib for a nap!).

Aww, the sweet, sweet smell of baby-debt relief, niiiiiice. (now on to that damn college fund!)

Woo Hoo! You guys are awesome. Dave would be so proud. I think this calls for a celebration- Papas Bros. steak, anyone? :) Good job Falkies.

Glad to see another baby is off "Lay-a-Way" hehehehe
Do remeber that at all? My Grandma always had something on lay-a-way at Kmart! Not sure why this post brought that to mind but it did! LOL
