I keep a journal of my family, travel, and anything else that may interest me. I do not write regularly in it but only when something occurs "worth writing home about." This blog is a part of my writings. It was originally my goal that this be political in scope with some peripheral topics, much like Kim du Toit's original site, kimdutoit.com. (His site - along with my wife - prompted me to start this one.)
Recently I was going through some old journal entries and happened upon an old entry that would also qualify as "a darndest thing."
From May 10th, 2005 (with names removed - O is my oldest and P was my youngest / is my middlest - because I prefer not use my friends' or familys' names when blogging)...
My Oldest and Her Sibling(s)
A week or so back:
My wife and I are considering having another child. We tried to think of it from our eldest's and youngest's points of view as well. We are sure that toddler P is not ready (or at least does not want) to be a middle child. O, having gone through the first two years of P, we had figured would be more amenable to having another sibling. But we asked her anyway…
Us: “O, what do you think about having another sibling?”
O: “Well… I kinda like the one I already have.”
