'But why would you have kids if you are just going to have somebody else (meaning daycare) raise them'?
The next time my neighbor offers up this little nugget of superority I'd like to have a snarky assed comment ready..

Note- said neighbor is-and always will be-on welfare. Both my SO and I work so the kids go to daycare (which they love BTW, we are lucky to find such a great one). I'd like to come back with something about how
a) daycare is not 'raising' them-we are
b) I can't see why you'd have several kids when you are not in any way able to support them
c) I dislike her and her bratty whining kids-there is NO advice I'd take from her on ANYthing ever
