For Love or Money?

All the of the kids are far less likely to pull punches these days, but I'm doing the best I can to take it without being defensive.

They aren't angry with me, it isn't arguments, they just have a lot on their minds and it needs to come out. It's more like tying up lose ends before adulthood I think.

I didn't know how many people had teased my kids over the years just because we were poor. I didn't want that for them at all. In making the decision to sacrifice career for kids I took a lot of crap, but so did my kids.

It makes me sad, because I wanted them to believe that love was more important than money but maybe I really am the only person who believes that?

Yet... my oldest daughter still wants to be a work at home mom someday.

So maybe not.
