The Blessings of Poverty

Today at the Register, check out my post “The Blessings of Poverty,” if only to enjoy the video from Fiddler on the Roof.

  1. I’m posting here instead of there because I feel like it-is that okay?

    Your last paragraph reminds me of how my second oldest (24) begins many sentences when speaking to his youngest siblings. . . “back when WE (meaning the three eldest kids)
    were too poor to have closets. . . ”

    And the whole over scheduled thing-you’ve nailed it. A few years back we had a windfall (just in time to help a little bit with college) and started to put our kids into the stuff our Stepford neighborhood prized so highly. This year, not feeling so much windfally as pinched-tight-we have considered foregoing a family getaway (don’t read too much into that) in favor of those costly summer campy lesson things. What, are we nuts? I need to see grandma-so do the kids.

    yup-sometimes it’s best not to have the option.
