A father asked his little daughter what she’d like for Christmas. She said what she wanted more than anything else was a baby brother.
The timing was perfect, and on Christmas Eve her mother came back from the hospital with a baby boy.
The following year, the father again asked his daughter what she’d like for Christmas.
“Well,” she replied, “if it’s not too uncomfortable for Mummy, I’d like a pony.”
