where did this notion come from...

... that poor people love their children less or the popular idea that you can't start a family until you've acquired the appropriate degree/home/car etc. This selfish acquistiion of goods is nothing more than an excuse to avoid having to live for any one other than oneself.

My mom and dad could've had a really fancy home built if she had worked full-time. But they cared enough about my brother's and my well-being to stay home with us. Did we have nice clothes or the latest toys? No. But we had a mom who was there for us. Family is what matters.

Meh. I don't know what's up with those people. We're just waiting until Mr. has a full-time job and we're not bumming rent money from our parents anymore.
