Watching Your Kids Grow...

We all know our kids grow up too quick at times. Where did the years go? Many want their children to stay young for as long as they can. The truth is your kids will get older. We did and they will as well.

But, there are some signs of growth in a child that makes you feel proud. Case in point...Morgan. In the morning I take both girls to school. Recently, Morgan has been reading to Lizzie Kate from "The Beginner's Bible." Little does she know, she is also reading to me. Morgan said, "I am up to page 86! Isn't that good dad?" I told her, "That's great!"

I am so proud she is reading well, but I am more proud that she is reading from a Children's Bible. It is a win-win situation. Lizzie Kate listens as Morgan reads. I hear her mention names that Morgan read.

Now, maybe Dad needs to read his Bible more.

Black Calculator...Black Stapler...Black Taco? With pepper jack sauce...

Put me in the column as someone who bit on the media blitz from Taco Bell for their new Black Jack Taco...with pepper jack sauce!

I must admit I have studied Taco Bell's commercials for some time now. They have come a long way. I never understood when the bell went forward why the clanger inside did the should have went backwards. They have since fixed that problem.

Their new commmercials have been very creative...enough so that they enticed me to try the Black Jack Taco. I would recommend it...with pepper jack sauce!
