Although I don’t generally pay any attention to horoscopes and the like, I admit I have a soft spot for the Chinese zodiac. The other day I was wondering which animal’s year it would be this year. Brad grabbed a calendar we’d gotten from our favorite Chinese restaurant and announced that it is the year of the Ox. He proceeded to read each of our animals descriptions.

Ox (me) – Bright, inspiring and easy going. You make an outstanding parent.
HA! I beg to differ!

Dog (Brad and Sarah) – Honest and loyal. Generous but stubborn.
Sounds about right.

Dragon (Lizzie) – Excitable with complex life. Stubborn on outside – soft hearted inside.
Hit the nail on the head.

Horse (Joshua) – Cheerful and popular, but impatient.
Holy crow, have they met Joshua??
