Wow.  I have only been doing this for four days, but it is eye-opening. 

My one year old was up quite a bit last week with two bottom teeth breaking through.  I was getting about 5 hours sleep a night.  She had two good nights of sleep after the teeth broke through before she caught her brother’s cold and was up with a 101 degree fever.  I am completely exhausted and have been reaching for sugar, sugar, sugar, to get me through the day.  I know, it is a bad habit healthwise.  Now I realize it is also a bad habit financially. 

Here is the damage:
