Maybe I am "progressive" but I want Matt to grow up understanding that not every child has a nanny or lives in a neighborhood with mansions. 99% of my neighbors are very wealthy. DH and I own the smallest house on the street and are NOT wealthy. The reason I am upset over this was an interaction with a neighbor.
Recently a couple with a 15 month old boy moved into one of the only rental properties. I mentioned to a neighbor how I was excited that Matt had another child to play with and she was horrified I would associate with people who rent.
She complained they drove a beat up car and she had some other non-relevant concerns over their worthiness to live on our street. I let her know that I welcomed the family whether or not they owned a home.
The preschool we are hoping Matt will go to is in our neighborhood but limits the number of higher-income families so that there is a wide diversity of kids that attend.
Every once and a while our housekeeper will bring her 2 year old to play with Matt and I think it is wonderful. I hope Matt grows up appreciating people for who they are rather than what they have or where they live.
