Introducing Thing 4

Thing 4For those of you who have been following SuburbanDaddy for awhile, I’d like to introduce the newest addition, Thing 4! I’m not sure which is bigger news – that there is a Thing 4, or that Thing 4 is a girl.

I’m happy that with three older brothers she will be very well protected in her teenage dating years. Forget about the nerves a teenage boy will feel having to face questions from her dad, SuburbanDaddy, for the first time. How about the gauntlet he will face going through Thing 1, Thing 2, and Thing 3.

Thing 3 already needs to be restrained if you try to take away his milk or Buzz Lightyear toy. Image what he’ll do if you make his little sister upset. Of course, with three older brothers, she will probably be pretty tough herself.

Over the next few months, I look forward to sleepless nights, spit ups, and lugging around baby gear. I also look forward to a whole new set of material that I can write about here. That’s the real reason we added a Thing 4.

  1. Hahaha … yes! I’m sure the additional Suburban Daddy material was the real reason Thing 4 was conceived! And how HAPPY she will be to hear that in 10 years!

    CONGRATULATIONS Suburban Family! She’s beautiful!

  2. Congrats to the Suburbanette!

    Wait until she hits about 5 and the diva drama begins!

    Seriously though, girls are fun!

  3. "I just don't like all the maintenance, bills, and the worry about how to sell it when the time comes."That sounds strangely like the whining of various constituencies who don't want the headaches of maintaining their own health insurance, feeding their own kids, deciding what to eat, and all the other justifications for the nanny/welfare state. Gee, personal responsibilitie's a pain, I sure wish I could abdicate this responsibility to someone else, like, maybe, Obama? Amazing how some people's devotion to the principles of liberty and personal responsibility are a function of whose ox is being gored.
