Class dismissed

Chana (7): How much money do we have, at home and in the bank?

Me: Why?

Chana: I'm just curious. Do we have a thousand dollars?

Rivka (5): We have as much money as we need. We're middle class.

What a wise little girl.

No way. I do not believe a 5-year-old girl really said that. And, if you insist that it really is a true story, where did she get that from?

I'm with Ayelet. That's TOO smart.

(Okay, that's pretty darn incredible, anyway.)

Turns out the Missus was reading a book to the girls about "Life in America 100 years ago" - it dealt with the life of the rich, the poor, and the "middle class." I guess this was explained as not having too much money and not having to little money.

Smart she may be, but note that she didn't say whether we are lower- or upper-middle class. Don't worry - we'll get her started on Marx right away.
