A conversation between poor married students...

...and the difference between men and women {men think in dollar signs, women think in sentimentality}

As I was looking at some of the most adorable/to die for/one of a kind designer dresses for Olivia, I turned the computer around to show B. He shrugged his sholder, meaning that he thought it was okay. I talked it up and he finally agreed that it would be cute on our girl. Then I told him the price fully knowing before even showing him the dresses that we would never buy it.

He replies, "For a baby's dress? Well all the rich dumb idiots will buy all of those up, thinking they have to have a one of a kind something for their little kids."
I replied, "Well when we have money I want to buy one."
He matter of factly says, "Oh I know. One day we'll be the rich dumb idiots and you can buy all the stupid one of a kind things you think we need."

Love that guy.

Funny thing is, there is always something more important - like food, shoes, college for the kids etc. to spend your "tons" of money on!! It's really hard to ever get that rich when you have a family! But maybe that's what keeps us from getting into too much "dumb" spending (though I do like a special dress now and then for such a sweet special girl-key word- SALE)!

So true and I agree mom! There will probably never be a day when we can buy ALL the silly things we want, I just thought it was funny that he said we would be 'rich dumb idiots'. Sounds like such harsh words, but obviously he didn't mean it in a rude way since he hopes we will have enough money one day to not have count our pennies, and be able to splurge every once in awhile ;)

When that day comes you will surely deserve to make some "rich dumb idiot" purchases! I totally agree with your mom too. This was funny. You guys are cute.
