Cute eyes, adorable smile. Sometimes this child makes you want to melt. (Also can cry like nobody's business). According to government research, it costs almost $400,000 to raise a child to the age of 18. Plus, you get no breaks.

Let's stop at the dog...18 is not necessarily the end of raising,,,,I was lucky with mine but it was luck....

Best thing I ever did. Did not keep track of costs. And now he is grown, double degreed and beginning a secure career. Yeah! I have to admit that after 26 years I am glad the costs are over.
