Apparently, having a kid costs 9277 a year. At the moment, though, little Ro is a profit centre. I get child benefit of 80 a month. I've been spending 20 a month on clothes for him (hooray for Asda's 3.75 packs of 7 sleepsuits). That leaves quite a lot. I shall buy him a piggy bank, then get him to buy his own Wii, or future equivalent, when he wants one.
