Today, my husband and I are dirt poor. But our kids are still smiling. They don’t seem to know it… or if they do, they don’t seem to care. MMT

Children can find joy in the smallest things. I bet they won't care that you guys are poor, they probably don't even notice it. Just don't forget to spend time and tell them you love them. Then they'll be the happiest kids around :)

You can't be too poor if you're still paying for intrawebs.

Puritymfkr: Two words: Public Library. Adreamer: You are not poor, like purity said. However, you're not poor in the sense that you have family, love and warmth from those around you. Even if you don't have the material things in life, that doesn't mean you are poor. You have more then some, and less than others. Either way, let your family be your reward.

We are dirt poor too and I think my kids are better off for it. I have been told by numerous teachers and other adults that they are the most kind, compassionate, and awesome kids they have ever met. I can only attribute this to the fact that they don't base their life on material things but rather on the love they are given.
