While I was eager to be done with 2009 and all that surrounds that year, it looks like we sheltered our kids from all the stresses and concerns.
Jessica: "Our life is kinda boring."
Papa Echo: "Really?"
Jessica: "Yeah, I just wish something exciting would happen."
Papa Echo (while preparing for yet another job interview): "Hmmm, you really shouldn't have said that."
Jessica: "Well, I mean, I don't want to move or anything..."
So, a job loss, mom going back to work, a complete change in finances, and struggling to sell a home is not exciting enough... Oy...
I guess it's good that we don't communicate all problems/excitement with our kids?
