Keith, the act of having kids converts us from rich people into poor people.

Well, actually that is a bit of a stretch.  I have found that having a kid
is not all that expensive.  When compared, for instance, to the annual
budgets of those countries with funny sounding names, such as "Camaroon" and
"Baroondy" and "France."

Spike, you didn't mention the other key factor when human couples have
cute little offspring..., ACCELERATED AGING!!!  I have seen all my
friends go grey or simply lose much of their hair when they get to the
point of having 2-3 kids running around.
