Interesting post here:

Today I was talking to someone who said she felt out of place among the other mothers at her and #2Child’s school. I hadn’t even really noticed that they were different.  Or rather, I’d noticed that they drive huge SUVs and figured that their clothes are probably more expensive than mine, but I don’t know enough about clothes to say, “wow, that’s a designer purse”. I guess you have to be more clued-in than I to realize all the ways in which I’m clued out.  I’m not unhappy with this state of affairs. It doesn’t seem to affect #2Child’s social life which is what matters, and #2Child is sadly materialistic anyway so it’s probably not from the influence of peers. End rambling.
