Two Girls, Happy Family!

The happiest families in the world have two girls -- to be exact!

According to new research about happy v. unhappy families that is based on a combination of kids ... mine was a third of the way down the list!  I have two sisters.

Of course, I'm gonna go on a limb and say that happiness is based on the condition of your heart both emotionally and spiritually, but this study focused on whether your kids are male or female, and how many you're raising.
