Kids and Money — August 14, 2008 The Lack of Sleep Edition

Welcome to the August 14, 2008 edition of Kids and Money. Be sure to check out the development of my free eBook, “Stock Investing Basics.”

Many of you know that I have two children: Two little boys — one is 2 1/2 years old, the other is 10 months old. They’ve both been under the weather. Consequently, I am a slow mover of late. I ache, I’m tired beyond belief (hard to imagine we’re contemplating trying for Number 3), and my eyes are two swollen, red, puffy orbs about to burst from my skull. My head aches, I’m anxious, and I have a short fuse.

I’m doing my best to keep it all together. My wife is an angel.

So I apologize for getting this edition out late with no commentary whatsoever.

As a consolation, I will be picking a few of these posts over the next week or so to do a more thorough read-through and commentary / analysis. I hope you’ll indulge me.

Without further delay here are this week’s submissions. Thanks to all for the support.
