The girls and I spent the whole morning playing Life (you know, the Game).  We have a 1960's non-politically correct version that I got at a thrift store for $1.99.  There's lots of gambling, catching a whale and something about selling shrunken heads to a museum.

The girls, who have never been baby-crazy--they like them and all, but they don't sit around dreaming about being housewives (I mean, they all want kids and they're all willing to have large families if that's how they're blessed, and stay home and some would homeschool, but they still want to go to college and have careers--you know, balanced)

So the girls, who have never been baby-crazy were SCREAMING like girls every time they landed on a baby!  Rose Bud was the worst!  She was clapping her hands!  They even changed the rules so that the revenge space sent you back 20+ spaces to a baby space.

Rose Bud needed 2 cars.  I made them name their children and she had:
and then she adopted Julian and Autumn  (that's 7, in case you're having trouble counting)

Daisy had Samuel, Sarah and Seth

 Pepper had Sapphire, Lotus, and her twins Jonathon and Joseph.

Oh, and I adopted Phoebe and Caleb from SCH.

Fortunately, I made it to the Millionaire Mansion first, so they all had a place to gather for dinner once the game was over.

I made Little Cheesey Meatloaves for dinner.  50 of them.
