An observation from my trip: Maybe little girls aren't so bad.

I realized that Guard Wife lives on my route home, so ol' Charlie and I stayed the night with her on the road trip. Our arrival coincided with her daughter's 5th birthday party. I was mentally thinking, "What did I agree to do?", but the party was charming and funny.

And Guard Wife's two daughters never made a bicker or a peep the whole time I was there. No fussing, no whining, no "she's hitting me!" They really upped the bar for me on child behavior. Maybe little girls might be up my alley.

Ha, now I just know Guard Wife will mess up her dynamic by adding a boy to the mix!

I think little boys and little girls are both fine, right up until junior high gets hold of them. There is something EVIL lurking in the walls of every junior high school I've ever encountered, I swear!

We enjoyed having you both very much!

The girls were 'encouraged' before you arrived to behave themselves so that you wouldn't think they were being raised by wolves or something worse. :)

I appreciate your help at the party a lot. Those kind of 'events' make me nervous, big time, and it was nice to have you in my corner!

As far as adding a boy to the mix...yeah, it sounds like something I'd go and do.
