That professional pictures of your child are a necessity.  I remember my first grade teacher discussing the difference between wants and needs with us and I could have sworn needs were things you need for survival.  So in that list I would put food, clothing, shelter, electricity, running water, and head and A/C.  Those are the things you need to live right?  In the past month I have learned from CM that internet is a necessity along with cell phones, cable, junk food, and now professional pictures.

What is your idea of a necessity or what you actually need for survival?  I love my cable and my internet but I could certainly live without them.

 I see my internet as a need as I take online classes. Everything else aside from food, shelter, and clothing when needed, oh and cell phone is a want.

Technically, you don't NEED electricity, running water (indoors) and A/C to survive. There are thousands of people around the world who do it everyday. Now me, personally, could not survive a day without wireless internet and a vente mocha frap...

 I agree. I am sick of MY (yes I said MY) tax money paying for cell phones, house phones and soon internet. And don't try to tell me that MY money doesn't pay for the shit b/c it is on my cell bill every month!!

I know the post you're talking about and it wasn't about NEEDING the pictures.  It was about sometimes treating yourself to something that you want!  Just because you're on assistance doesn't mean that you should do without SOME things that others have. Gah...you think that it's WRONG for someone to want professional pics of their children?  Well I think it's wrong of you to JUDGE...so there!
