Last weekend we took our two year-old twin daughters to the Chesapeake Eggstravaganza, an Easter egg hunt and carnival at Chesapeake City Park. One of the free activities was pony rides.
As we put our twins on the ponies, the woman who owned them mentioned that she had twin girls who were grown now. She gave us a bit of advice that their dad was eager to hear. She told us that her girls were really into horses and she was glad, because they weren't as interested in boys when they were teenagers as some of their peers. "The horses won, " she said. "They stayed away from boys about a year longer than we expected."
Definitely something to think about, although I wonder if the girls bribed her to say that so they could get Daddy to buy them a pony!
