I’ll be honest: the older I get, the less I think about ‘wanting’ money. It’s more about ‘needing’ money to pay for bills, grocery, our mortgage and family. In fact, I don’t even like buying extravagant things for myself anymore because I know how hard and long I have to work to pay it off.
But that doesn’t mean that I don’t occasionally treat myself. I love a good mani/pedi and spa day just like any other hard-working mama out there. But going to the mall and spending an excessive amount of cash on myself doesn’t necessarily make me happy. I mean, should it? That’s what some people are wondering especially after comments celebrity mom and music mogul Beyoncé recently made about her wealth. Now, I can’t compare myself to someone like Beyoncé, but I can say that she’s just like a lot of other moms out there who work hard to earn their keep. The difference, of course, is the amount on her pay slip compared to ours. Here’s what we know.
