Jackson, Ben and Eli were all snuggled up on the chair, watching some sort of TV program (probably the hunting channel!) while mum and I went over some paper work.
A commercial came on, asking people to give money to help homeless orphaned children by 'adopting' them.
Ben innocently took this in and then asked his dad "why did you choose me?", no doubt thinking we had picked him from a TV commercial.
Without missing a beat, Eli said "because you were the best one we could find."
Ben accepted the answer and turned back for the TV.
Jackson gave a big horse snort and announced
"They didn't PICK you Ben! When dad bred mom they didn't even know if you would be a boy or a girl!"
