Matthew Arbold of Catholic Blog Award Winning Creative Minority Report has a post bragging about the luxury of having five children, which references a column on this subject at the Washington Post . Wow, I've done something posh! I had a third child. Who knew, that me, the thrift-shopper with the 8 year old mini-van is acting like a Hamptonite nouveau riche! He's right, it really seems like a luxury to have more than two children on this expensive island.
