With occasional posts, Alexandra, Adrienne's older sister, writes of her ranch life in Nevada and raising four sons, ages 5 and under. Life is never dull and her boys have given her some pretty awesome stories to tell.

Stick around awhile, and you're sure to laugh, nod, smile, be encouraged, and see what life is like with a big (little) family.

For Sale

Saturday, my mom and I took the two youngest girls shopping with us. The others were left to fend for themselves while Daddy worked around the yard. Apparently, they had themselves a little yard sale. I cam home to signs reading:

FOR SALE! 3 brown eggs

breakable but handy and yummy

$5.40 tax and tip

THANK YOU!

(We’ve been discussing tips lately. Apparently they are getting it – because that’s a really big price for three eggs, brown or not. Pretty sure they didn’t sell.)

Another sign read:

“This dog for sale! $70.36”

And in small print, at the bottom – because, while you have to teach the concept of a tip, small print is a given:

“Age: almost 1

Name: Brady

You might have to spank her often. When you call her name please say “Brady come.” She likes the van or she does not come.”

Since the dog is still here, no one must have wanted a disobedient dog either. Truth in advertising hurts.
