Is Gambling a Man's Thing? We Dare to Disagree

We are milk drinkers. Specifically, we drink cow's milk. I fully appreciate the wide-range of other milks out there for people who are lactose intolerant, but I also chuckle at the idea of milking an almond. There are no allergies in our family, so when my son turned one we introduced him to cow's milk and haven't looked back.

Granted, it is not a lot shorter, but since my son has declared that he wants to be taller than my husband and I, we are not going to take any chances: We are going to stick with cow's milk.
