Any comments on this editorial that ran yesterday?


http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/04/AR2008040403217.html


I really object to the line that says that a family with just two kids is minimalist and "even a little sad."


Any other comments?

One of the executives where I work has 2 nannies for his 2 children. Don't understand why one can't do the job but then my son goes to daycare where 1 person is allowed to watch MANY children at one time-lol!!!

Okay, if 1 or 2 is minimalist and sad, and 3 or more is ostentatious....what's left??

would you have felt differently about it if the glamour had centered around having just two kids?

Yeah, I used to live in the South Bronx myself in college and there were plenty of families with 3+ kids that surely don't fit this author's description!
