Can We Get Some More Boys Around Here?

This is the question Johnny asked his dad this past weekend.  There was a pause because John's immediate reaction was "Heck NO!". Of course he couldn't say that, especially since it wasn't "heck" that blazed through his mind.

The poor kid wants a brother in the worst way and I do feel sorry for him.  In Gracie's prayers tonight she asked God to "please help Johnny not tackle me anymore" and, while he really needs to stop tackling his sisters, he needs to tackle something and they're all he has around.

Sweet, sweet boy.  The good news is that there will be loads of brother-in-laws for him some day.  The bad news is that his sisters will have to suffer through years and years of tackling before that day comes.

Oh Johnny....If only we were closer, Jake would play tackle games with you all day long!
