I don't claim to be an expert in this, but I have a few words of advice.
I have thought for quite a while now that 3 years between kids is ideal. We happened into that spacing not by choice, but it has worked out ok.
Until I made this startling realization:
We will be producing Pine Wood Derby Cars for six. years. straight.
The aerodynamics or lack thereof.
The engineering degree or lack thereof.
Is it overweight?
The track inspired road rage.
The car that jumps the lane.
The crushed dreams.
For both the cub scout and his dad.
And therefore, for his mom also.
All over a stupid block of wood and black plastic wheels.
Pray for us.
The pine wood derby is tomorrow at 7, so you can be specific in your prayers.
(Thankfully, our scout leaders give everyone a blue ribbon with their name and time on it. That's all. No placing. Thank goodness. But you know that the dads still keep track.)
Please, keep this in mind as you are considering the establishment of your posterity.
