Bicycle it is

FarmWife wanted to get D a little donkey with a cart and harness for her birthday. FarmHusband wanted to get D a new bicycle for her birthday. FarmWife said, "and we can get ponies for the other girls." FarmHusband said, "and we don't have to feed it."

FarmHusband won, and little D is getting a new bike when she turns seven next week. (Shhh, don't tell!)  It all works out in the end, though. FarmWife is actually working towards adding a second full-sized equine to the family some day—someone who can wear my harness until I get my act together and learn to behave between the lines.  The donkey idea was merely a test, and the test revealed that the time is not yet right.

Husbands are smart, husbands are opinionated, and husbands require kindness and patience. They are like mules that way.
