I usually like to post something new when there is something new to post. I am not so sure if there is anything new to post, but I have the urge to to write...
So, last weekend Kevin was home and he always wants to have a family dinner with anyone and everyone who wants to come. This seems to be a ongoing event. We had the whole crowd over and had sloppy joes. Sloppy Joes- now that reminds me of a story-
time to spotlight nephews Trae and Chris. Years ago when these two were just young lads of about 5 or 8 or so, they came to our house on vacation. I was going to fix dinner of Sloppy Joes. their mother said " they dont like Sloppy Joes". I had already started dinner and that's what we were having. So when it comes time to sit down and eat, these two little guys ask "what is it?" I reply, "Sloppy Bobs, have you ever had that?" They admitted that they had not and were happy to try them. After several bites, they wanted more and cleaned their plates and requested seconds. Their mother was shocked!! I guess it is a good thing their father and Grandfather are named Bob! (picture is of these boys with their parents and 10 years later!)
That story reminds me of another one... When my kids were little, they did not like to drink water much. So one day after watching Power Rangers on TV, I asked who would like some "Power Water". Curiosity and too much TV got the better of them and they all wanted some. After determining which Power Ranger was their favorite, I got water in 3 clear glasses and put a drop of the corresponding food coloring in their glass and Wa La!!! Power Water!!! After that, I never had a problem getting my kids to drink water. Aren't kids amusing and so easily tricked!
