    Sure short, Holly loses, until she meets the bad boys at the next campsite.

    Someone got the short end of the stick.

    Good deal for Sis – lots of “naughty” kids behave better for an Auntie than for their own parents!

    Middle panel should read “I’ll trade you the middle-school diva for both of them.”

    @JDono

    You are correct, but spoken English is often spoken colloquially; ei, badly. And in the rush of trying to get an idea out, we sometimes make misteaks.

    Not sure who lost on this exchange. Val is thinking back on how much easier things were when her kids were three and six, while Joan hasn’t yet experienced the horror of coping with a teenager. (My youngest niece was a sweet, obedient child until she turned 13, whereupon she figured that being 13, she now knew everything and she spent the next seven years being pissed off at the world for not acknowledging her superiority.) I think both ladies are in for an eye-opening.

    I have actually taken a six-month old camping. She adored it. Just accept the level of filth involved and they will be fine. I do recommend a playpen for when you get tired of stopping the baby from eating rocks and dirt.

    I’d take the teenager over 2 small kids any day. You can ignore the teenager’s attitude, but you can’t ignore the 6 month old for a second.
