Reality Show....by Jessica

This post is for Sue West who commented on a picture of Anya and I on Instagram: Love your family, you're like a clean fun reality show!  

I like a lot about this comment.  Thank you Sue.

It reminded me of a funny story.  

We were taking a walk through town a few months back and we stopped at this empty storefront window.


(Okay, I don't remember it looking so dungeon-esque, but I'm pretty sure this is the same building) -  Anyhow, we looked in there for awhile, then I turned to the kids: 
"I've got something to tell you."

Sometimes they look at me like they're not quite sure what's going to happen.

"Well.  I've signed us up for a new project they're doing in town.  We are going to live in this building.  Our living room is going to be RIGHT there.  And people are going to walk by and stare at us all day long.  How do you feel about that?"

They knew I was kidding.  And then they thought I might not be.  And then they knew I was kidding again.  And then, they thought about it again and thought I might not be.

You gotta keep it interesting.

Nothing can be more entertaining than messing with your kids' heads. (In a NICE way of course!)

You're terrible! Haha! Jonah is so prosaic, we can never mess with him. He just looks at us and says something super adult about how he knows we aren't being serious. No fun! ;)
