Living Like Paupers but Feeling Like Princesses

The other day, I was standing in line to buy my groceries, looking at a magazine. The woman behind me, with two small girls with her, struck up a conversation with me about the movie star on the cover.
She mentioned she was living in some weekly suites near the store, and was having a problem with the father of the girls paying his child support. I noticed the older little girl (about 4) was very excited about getting a cartoon plate set (the set that comes with a cup, plate, and matching silverware with the character on it), and there was another one in the cart for the smaller child. I asked if I could purchase these for the girls, and she agreed. Honestly, I didn't agree with some of the things about this woman's life, but I don't feel that children should bear their parents' burdens, and I wanted to do a little something to make their life more enjoyable.
