I’ve been getting a lot of “poor Tanner”—I’m even guilty of saying it myself. But the more I think about it, the more I realize he is not “poor.” Just the other day I heard Aubrey telling Tanner to come and get his dirty laundry off the bathroom floor, and just minutes after that Alyssa reminded Tanner that he left a stinky sock in the bathroom. Emma is often reminding him to brush his teeth. Now look at all the trouble these girls are saving my son from! OK, really I’m just teasing, I’m often reminding the girls that Tanner only needs one mom and I try hard to protect him from being overly mothered. But on the positive side, he will always have his own room, he won’t ever share his father at Father and Son’s, and let me tell you when he is off at scout camp this summer, there are going to be some irate young ladies in my home and a lot of “no fairs” being shouted. Tanner has the best personality for a house full of sisters, and I believe he will be just fine with it.
Danny happens to have 5 sisters, a few brothers also, but I think that him having so many sisters has turned him into a fabulous husband. He is patient, kind and cleans house, what more could I ask for? I’m pretty sure that having so much female influence in his life has contributed to the man he is today. So no more poor Tanner’s from me, Tanner is truly blessed!
