Are we Poor ???

I've been having a bad week and have been openly venting my fustration with the high cost of living [ meaning everything ]. I mean [ not to sound old ] but I remember when milk was $2.50 a gallon. When a small bag a chips cost you 25 cents and when I first moved to florida gas was $1.25 a gallon.
So here I am fustrated and openly talking about the high cost of living in front of my children. I forgot that my duaghter is old enough to know what I am saying but not old enough to understand what life is all about. So on one of our trips home from school she ask a very polite question: "Are we poor???"

I really felt bad about forgetting that children pick up everything you say.
She brought me to tears when she offered to give up her savings to help the family out.....
I love my kids...

Update: Video is gone due to Revver shutting down. I wish I had put it in youtube.

It's been several years since I wrote this post and after these several years of economic distress [ recession, real estate collapse, bank failures, and Europe on the brink of collapse ] I wonder if I did a good job of teaching my children about how to deal with money and how to survive in economic down turns.. ????
