I was busy going back and forth getting chores done as the kids ate lunch today. From the other room I heard Amelia start lecturing her brothers. (Really, there's no other word for it.)

"You know," she said wisely, "there are four boys in this family and only two girls."

Sam said, "No, there are THREE boys."

"Daddy's a boy, too, so FOUR boys," said Amelia.

She continued, "And I really wish I had two sisters who were the same age as me."

My heart twinged a little. It's not the first time Amelia has wished for a sister or three

Then Isaac said, incredulously, "Two more just like YOU?"

I had to smother my laugh as I fled the room.
