While Papa Echo was taking out his contacts, Jonathan asks, "Daddy, why are you taking out your eye pods?"

My husband is brilliant. I'll admit it. Don't tell him I said it though. Let me give you an example:

I bought a bunch of cans of vegetables for our food storage. We are now trying to go through these cans and I have to say that canned peas and carrots are frankly disgusting. The kids think they are from the devil. (I have to agree but I don't tell them that.) Well, we needed a vegetable with our chicken dinner and the only thing I had was one of these cans. So, I heated it up and thought "Be prepared for a looooooooong dinner of crying and whining and threats (from me) and more tears....." As I was getting the milk and glasses on the table, my husband was plotting and scheming. When I walked into the dining room, I found all three kids gobbling/inhaling their vegetables. My mouth dropped to the floor. Turns out that all three kids wanted a drumstick and so Papa Echo says, "the person to finish their vegetables first gets the drumstick."

Well, I finally did it. I started a blog. It must be going out of style if I'm now on the bandwagon. I sure do enjoy reading my friends blogs and hearing about their day to day highs and lows. Now I'll have to reciprocate and share my family with you. It's not too fair to always be the anonymous donor of comments. So, here's to my future online journal!! This ones for you Tif-do and Stimey.
