The Estrogen Explosion

Last week we had a girl's night at my home while the guys were at their regularly scheduled poker night. Pizza, bread sticks and cookie dough are the preferred menu. Everyone comes ready to relax and do some major laughing. Month after month the guys manage to sneak away without taking a single child along. Why is that?

This month there were ten children, ages 4 months through 13 (sorry Jubee). Add five mothers. Thirteen of those fifteen bodies had XX chromosomes. Only two XYs were in the house, one downstairs playing a video game and the other on the bed asleep (fitting, no?). You can rest assured that with this many females under one roof there is a potential for high drama, loud laughter and the occasional complaints about cramps and childrearing. The air often smells of nail polish. Topics of conversion run from crafting projects to politics. Every one of the mothers is a successful career woman, each is multi-faceted and incredible.

It makes for a fascinating and lively evening. Way more fun than a boring poker game. Thanks ladies!

Sounds like so much fun! Wish I could join you all sometime. (Of course, then you wouldn't be able to say that "successful career woman part.) :)

Muriel, isn't raising five children a career??? At this point in my life "grandma" is my chosen career! The rest are all hobbies.
