Monday Teeny Poll

By Glinda


Last week, I wanted to know if you agreed with the idea that larger families are falling out of style. A full seventy-four percent of you did. Eighteen percent felt that it depended on exactly how large the family was.

I agree with the majority. Although I do think that as long as the parents have the resources, they can have as many children as they like. Even though I would like to have another child, I don’t think I could see myself having more than two.

As for today’s poll, I want to know what you did this weekend.

    In our house we celebrate Arizona Statehood Day with the exchange of cards, flowers, and candy. It may be a bit weird, but it works. ­čÖé

    I like to think I’m above such corporate holidays, but really, we prefer to celebrate any stupid thing we can around here. ­čÖé So we did.

    Mr. Gamma and I agree that teaching our children to behave correctly in all situations is a responsibility we jointly share. This means, in addition to table manners and treating others kindly, observing the rituals of Valentine’s Day. Our children know that ignoring Valentine’s Day comes across as cheap and/or disrespectful to the one they claim to love.

    HOWEVER, the observance can vary, particularly if a couple parents together. Some budgets run to romantic walks, a single red rose, and a card, and that’s OK. It’s good for everyone if love is celebrated in the home.

    This year we selected flowers and gifts together, went to lunch, and Mr. Gamma cooked dinner. It was exactly what we both wanted, and the kids knew that all was well in the Mom-and-Dad universe.

    It just occurred to me. Like, it JUST occurred to me. Valentine’s is a Christian holiday, like Christmas only not so Christy. I wonder what people who aren’t Christian think of it.

    We had a great weekend! Mr. Carol’s granddaughter had a HS basketball game late Friday afternoon, which we followed up with pizza and beer at our favorite spot. Saturday we bought me a new phone, then he made dinner (planked salmon on the grill – very yummy) and we went out to this little piano bar where a friend was playing, drank martinis and danced.

    Raincoaster, my dear friend is Jewish and asked me what the big deal was about St Valentine. She and her husband celebrate the holiday, just didn’t know why…
