Your baby sister is NOT a TOY. Please do not treat her like one!
I see that you have 4 kids what are their ages/genders? How do they all get along with each other? Larger families seem to be dying out in modern society. Did you grow up in a large family?

This isn't a vacation; it's a business trip!" I laughed myself sick! Favorite music? I...
I have three cats, supposedly to keep down the rodents but, being the pampered house cats they are, they kinda suck at it. But I love them anyway. The oldest one, Dante, is ten and is very tolerant of babies pulling his tail and just generally being hard on him. I am planning a VBAC, with my amazing MW. I am doing shadowcare with an OB practice, just in case. I'm trying to decide whether to have a HB or go to my MW's birth center. I live 30 minutes from the nearest...
