I have an even number of children again.
Even or odd is a big deal for some people. I know someone who went so far as to “plan” her family based on wanting an even number. Now *that’s* odd. 🙂
I do think there can be a sort of ganging-up mentality when there are odd numbers. It happened with my two sisters and me. There were five of us most of the time growing up (and various fosters and eventually an adoption), but the youngest two were kind of a pair unto themselves, which left me and my sisters to pick one ally at a time. We all love each other, of course, and don’t fight anymore (much). But it’s an interesting idea. Would it have been any different had there been four girls in a row?
I guess I’ll keep an eye on how the dynamic changes based on the pairing up vs. ganging up theory.
For now I’ll just enjoy the cuteness of two by two.
What do you think? Have you noticed a difference in your own families when it changed between odd and even?
