What is "rich"?

Wednesday, February 06, 2013
The DD and I are reading Harry Potter 2 (well, she's reading it out loud to me at night, one chapter at a time).  Last night was a chapter in which Lucius and Draco Malfoy are really obnoxious and the Weasleys are really wonderful.  This led to a discussion of how people who think they are better than other people (in this case because of wealth and aristocratic standing) sometimes treat other people very badly.  Which led, then, to this serious-as-only-children-can-be exchange:

DD: Mom, are we rich?

Me: Well, we're not really rich in money, but we're rich in other ways.

DD: Like LOVE.

Me: Yes, sweetie, we are rich in love.

And then she wandered off to brush her teeth, leaving me behind to feel like somewhere, sometime, the DH and I must have done something right after all.
