Mowing the lawn is a boy's job... unless you don't have any sons

In our family, I am often razzed because I have NEVER mowed the lawn. I'm sorry, but it is a father or a son's job. I'm willing to weed, plant, scrub the bathrooms, clean the kitchen floor, dust and do laundry but I have no interest in learning how to mow the lawn. Jade, on the other hand, will get to learn how to mow the lawn and she'll learn to enjoy it. As you can already tell, she's thrilled to help Scott. For now, it gets to be great daddy time. (I'll pull up some older pictures of her helping Scott in Kentucky too).- stay tuned for that post.

Just for the record, I mowed our lawn (not every time, but sometimes doc's too!)starting when I was twelve. You just lucked out cause your sister was a tomboy!

You can add "not having to mow the lawn" to the list of advantages of being a middle child!
