Pros and Cons of the Man-to-Man Defense

Hi, Friends–Jenny Schoberl, blogger extraordinaire at Holdin’ Holden, was kind enough to feature me as a guest blogger this week. I’ve put the beginning of the post below with a link to her site so you can finish reading this short snippet, which hopefully will make you smile or chuckle. Check out some of Jenny’s posts also, as she is sure to make you laugh. Thanks, as always, for stopping by . . .

I am not as smart as I thought I was.

Until I had kids, while not regularly patting myself on the back for being a Nobel Prize contender, I knew I was bright.

I married a smart man.

And we had babies.

Who ended up smarter than we are.

That was not in the plan.

My then husband said, when I suggested a third child, “We have to stick to the man-to-man defense. If we move to the zone, we’re outnumbered. And oh, by the way, they’re smarter than we are. So even though we look evenly matched by the numbers, we’re the underdog.”


Flash forward a few years and many dollar signs later . . .

Read the rest at Pros and Cons of the Man-to-Man Defense and be sure to give Jenny a shout-out!

    I hate to tell you this, but grandchildren are even smarter. One of ours, when ten, made the statement that old people’s cars smell funny — as he climbed into the back seat of ours. He then went on to develop his theme into a full-bodied, detailed essay, but had grace to finish with, “Except for yours, of course.”

    If pro is the opposite of con, then the opposite of progress is Congress… A little more coffee might help.
