One unavoidable thing about close family relationships is that you take after one another in various ways. My hubby really doesn't like eggs. Now, he would never turn down eggs at the expense of someone's dignity. We all have those things that we will not eat no matter who we offend, but this isn't one. In fact, God has actually given me favor in this area by causing my husband to like my scrambled eggs. So I made breakfast tacos last night. The last time I tried feeding scrambled eggs to my son was three months ago. He hated them. But I thought he would have forgotten this unfortunate preference by now. So I sprinkled a good amount of cheese on the eggs and put them on Jackson's tray. Ha ha, silly woman! I will not eat these eggs! I even tried pouring some syrup on them (don't judge - it's tasty). No luck. He's taking after his father.
Today I watched the NFL Draft with Curtis. Don't even ask me why. I was horrified by the barbaric placement of the camera in front of Brady Quinn and his girlfriend during their anguish. I had a million questions about the whole process and ended up a little captivated by the whole thing. So I think I might actually try to watch it again with him next year. And do you know what else? I recently listened to his sports radio show in our car for ten minutes before I realized it wasn't my normal station. So I might be absorbing some of my hubby's interest in all things ESPN.
Tonight we went to Chili's with our friends Daniel and Amy. They are moving far, far away in a month and we needed some face time with them. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich with fries and a side of ranch. There is nothing better than Chili's fries and ranch. However, my husband has a severe distaste for ranch and even smelling it or looking at it too long makes him gag and act like a junior high girl. It's almost like a small panic attack. Jackson was holding a french fry in his hand and what did he do but DIP IT IN THE RANCH. One after another after another... That's my boy! And guess what, Curtis? Your son likes pickles too!
