Everyone needs a big brother

What would McKenna do without her big brother?

She Loves her JJ

And he loves her too. (Most of the time)

She needs someone to climb on daddy with.

And to help with life's challenges.

JJ These Days

Every day around 7:00am or so JJ and I have the following conversation:

JJ: I need poscal (popsicle) Mommy.

Me: It's too early for a popsicle right now. You need to eat breakfast.

JJ (After some giving it some consideration): How 'bout orange poscal?

Me: How about toast?

JJ: How 'bout red?

Me: How about Eggos?

JJ: How 'bout green?

Me: How about cereal?

JJ: How 'bout purple?

This is a running dialogue between me and JJ for the rest of the day. I just alternate the type of food I want him to eat depending on what time of day it is. I am sooo tired of hearing about popsicles all day long, but on the other hand, they are a very powerful bargaining tool. We can pretty much get JJ to do anything we ask him to do if we bribe, umm I mean positively reinforce him with a popsicle.

We' ve finally entered the 21st Century!

We just made the change from dial-up to wireless internet this last week. Hey don't give me any flack, it's not like I've been churning my own butter, people! Whenever we would mention to someone that we had dial-up they would either say, "WHY?" or "They still have that?" Yes, they still have it. And it was only $9.95 a month. That is why we had it.

But anyway, here we are, and I'm trying to figure out this whole blog thing, so be patient with me. We are excited to keep in touch with our friends this way!
