Phoebe Ain't Nothin' But a Number

Phoebe's social security card arrived today so she is now, officially, part of "the system".

I'm actually impressed with how quickly it got here as we were "warned" by the hospital staff that it wouldn't arrive for at least 13 weeks. Well, it took less than 5 weeks. I wish I could have said the same about our economic stimulus check.

The good news is our little tax deduction pride and joy is now all set to be included on our tax forms next year. The bad news -- for her -- is that one day she'll be paying taxes as well.

The best news of all? We can always sell her social security number to the highest bidder to pay for her college fund!

What? Like she's gonna notice a little identity theft.

Kids=tax deduction. Brilliant! I have just enough time (if I drink castor oil and jump on trampolines in the last weeks) to get knocked up and save myself some money come April.
