If only they'd both look good in the same picture

Although it is rarely used, Liam has his own email account. When we switched our internet provider over from Netrover to Cogeco, we got 5 email addresses as part of the deal; so, since he was already around, we reserved an account for Liam on the chance that we might still be with Cogeco a few years from now when he is able to actually use it. I didn't have an email account of my own until I was in university, but I am assuming kids these days have them by the time they hit kindergarten. Anyway, I was caught off guard a while back to receive an email at work from Liam Cook. I opened the email, and it said something like this: "Dear Mom, I saw something that I thought Dad would like for Father's Day. Here is the link to where you can buy it online. I would buy it myself, but I don't have a credit card. Thanks for taking care of this for me." I take it this means that Chad has taken my threats of considering the hitch to be his Father's Day present seriously. Which is good. Because it is. Only now, he wants something more; and it's not just a little something, it's an 8-man tent. Why we need an 8-man tent is beyond me; Chad will be the very first to tell you that there is no way, now how that we want five more kids. Father's Day is just a week away... we'll see what happens...

I got word that Chad was in fact getting that tent and that we could borrow it for our weekend in Algonquin. ;)
Will I see you on Wednesday?? Hope so. :)
