Welcome To The Bigs, Meat

In a matter of hours, Mr. & Mrs. LMC are due to find out what it is like to switch from man-to-man to zone defense, as they anticipate the imminent arrival of Child No. 3.

My advice? Play back. Let them have the short gains. Far better than letting them find the crease, go deep and burn you. Because given half the chance, that's exactly what they'll try.

Good luck! Yip! Yip! Yip!

Totally agree. Mine are 4, 5, and just 7. You'll also find that eliminating any one actor from the group, it matters not which, improves things exponentially. Of course I mean "eliminate" in the kindest of ways, usually involving duct tape and Xanax.

Best wishes to the LMC family.

Totally agree. Remarkable, these days, how much smoother everything goes, if one of our 3 goes on a play date. Doesn't matter which one, but if the kid count goes down from 3, life is easier.

While for us, at four kids, if we have one child out of the house the noise level drops by more than half and it really doesn't matter which one.

So congratulations!
