Tristan puts up with a lot as the big brother to four sisters. There is often a green haze wafting from the girls bedroom when their melon body splash is used in excess. There are polly pockets mixed in with the legos and an assortment of lip gloss liters the kids bathroom countertop. When we vote on a movie, naturally, The Little Mermaid usually wins over Superheros. Poor guy!
The following list is taken from Dr. Dobsons book Brining Up Boys. It was composed by a nine year old boy in response (retaliation) to a letter from a little girl on why girls are better than boys. Tristan Im sure can relate and probably add a few pointers!

    I love it!! I read it and marked that as a favorite spot to return to… with four boys and one girl, I am very aware of how true so much of that list is. Ahahahhahahah!! God created each to compliment the other. Until they mature to appreciate that, the war over differences is quite funny. Funny thing is… I think we still battle over some of them, even into adulthood. That book was GREAT! Now, I am hoping to eventually get my hands on “Bringing Up Girls”. Have you read it? I itch to. Well, thanks.
