Violet is tentatively getting a brother in May, which means that playing house will be a lot more fun.
When you’re a little girl playing house with a bunch of other little girls; one of you inevitably has to play the dad–which, let’s face it is the most boring role in playing house. It’s like getting the short straw. However, when you have a brother–problem solved! They don’t even have to participate in the game to be included, which means that no little girl has to waste a perfectly good afternoon of playing house to be the dad.
