Confession #1: I have a few quirks. I know, it is surprising, but true. One of my more alarming quirks to people I meet is my absolute refusal to put milk (or any other liquid substance) in my cereal. I eat it plain, right as it comes out of the box in all its crunchy, glorious self. The thought of milk sogging it all up...yuk!

Confession #2: I may have influenced the girls to carry on my quirks. I don't think I did it on purpose. My original intent in not giving them milk in their cereal was to avoid the mess that a two year old with a spoon, milk and cereal could create. I don't like messy. I am not the fun mom that gets excited to jump in puddles or make mudcakes or play with sand. SIDENOTE: The theme for this weeks I Heart Faces photo contest is "messy". I got nothing. I have let the girls get dirty, but since I am not a big fan, I am not inclined to take their pictures when they are. :)

Anyway, back to the cereal. Jamie let Macie try his the other day (The other girls just scream with disgust if he even suggests they put milk in their cereal). But, the Mace...she liked it. And Jamie instructed me that I was to give her cereal and put milk in it. So yesterday, for the first time ever as a mom...I gave my two year old a bowl of cereal with milk and a spoon. Surprisingly, it wasn't too messy and she ate pretty much the whole bowl. I guess I will have to influence Macie with one of my other quirks. :)

HALLELUJAH!! (Abs) I'm extremely happy that Macie can now experience the cereal eating process as it was truly intended to be - with milk!!

Oh my gosh! I laughed so hard. I do totally remember that you didn't like milk on your cereal. Who was the wierdo that used to put water on their cereal at college to save calories? I would like to punch that person. SO annoying : ).

But anyway, I totally came over to see your messy picture. Mine weren't really messy. I am not a big mess fan either.

Worst day EVER at work today...but this, totally and completely, made my day!

Hey, how was your trip? I know you took some nice pictures while you were gone. Don't you want to enter this week? No digging required : ). I want you to learn how to do photoshop for me. My pictures need your help. You are SO good at stuff like that. When can I schedule you for training? : )
