Thanks for your timely post :) Am expecting our first son end-June. Especially agree and encouraged by points 5 & 7. There's just such an onslaught of the market capitalizing on the baby-child industry, from hospitals to baby products, to milk powder, to childcares, to enrichments, etc, etc... One concept I believe God is really teaching us is at the end of the day, in all our decisions for our child, "what is good enough?" There's nothing wrong with desiring or working to get the best for our children, but we also don't want our child growing up elitist and spoilt, and having a "everything must be best, number one" mentality.

A big part of the confusion in society is equating money spent to best e.g. my aunty runs a high-end, expat-audience childcare franchise, whose fees are even more expensive than my NUS fees per semester ($600 a month/$7200 a year versus my NUS for $5000 a year).
