Funniest/Best Kid Quote:
I took the kids to see their new cousin shortly after she was born.  S'ghetti Girl was eager to hold her and oooed and ahhhed.  Like many little kids, LBM wanted to keep touching her head and kiss her.  It was all a very sweet scene. 
What was priceless was when their cousin, Z the new baby's big brother made it a point to remind LBM that the new baby was HIS sister. 
LBM looked at me and asked, "When do I get my baby?"
I told him,  "Not for at least another 20 years if you know what's good for you."
