    Should have been called Rich Catholic moms guide

    I am very dissappointed by this book. THis book could not have been written bvy anyone elese but someone rich enough to send her children to music, piano, and dance lessons as well as teaching them. Poor poor author. In these days of high unemployment, was the author going to and from two jobs? Was her house foreclosed? Did this woman really exercise Catholic principles of giving to the poor? No, instead this author just writes about how hard it is to be rich and catholic and have lots of children. Poor poor author.
