Opposites attract

Do you ever look at your children and wonder where they came from? As in, how in the world could someone you helped create act or feel that way? Johnny takes it in stride. He despises few things in this world. The two things on the list are bubble gum (do NOT chew in front of him. You also do NOT want to be around homeboy when he steps in gum that someone has spit out. It is truly disgusting to him.) and mustard (even though I love mustard, Johnny will not eat it on his sandwiches). So, along comes little Evelyn with her arms full from the fridge. She brings me the loaf of bread, grape jam and...mustard. And asked that I put them all together. She has ordered "purple and mustard" enough times in a row to warrant documentation. Hilarious. We have, however, brainwashed our children to believe that bubblegum is poison. When they see it in the grocery stores in the 25 cent dispenser stands, they point and say, "Ew! Gum! Gross!" Totally awesome.

I laughed out loud. I did not know that about Eve. I love it. She is grandma Covey's offspring.

That is really funny. What a combination-Jelly and mustard-ick! Ethne(almost 3) loves mustard as well and her favorite sandwich is currently mustard and cheese on bread. Nothing else-just mustard and cheese :) I am right there with stepping on the gum though-I HATE stepping in gum.

LOVE IT!Johnny has always hated gum and it's so funny to hear that your kids truly believe that it is horrible! And I love the thoughtful sandwich Evelyn made for her Daddy.... Johnny should have eaten it to show his gratitude... Just kidding! I love you all!
