What are you not really good at? Violin.

What does the president do? He symbolizes…  That’s pretty much all he does.  At least our current one.  He’s like the American eagle.  Except he doesn’t really symbolize freedom, he symbolizes debt and poverty and welfare.

What is your favorite room in the house? What kind of question is that?  The bathroom.  What the heck?  Like if there was only one room left what room would I want it to be?  Is that what kind of question this is?  Probably the kitchen.  I could just pee in the sink.  Don’t put that last part.  MAWM!!!!

Do you have a superhero preference? Heck yes.  Batman for the win.  And Hawkeye.  I like Thor a lot too.  Oooh, and the Green Arrow.  I really like him too.

Can you think of any other questions I should ask you? Yeah.  You should ask me, “Kait, would you like to sleep in tomorrow and have me make you steak for breakfast and serve it to you in bed?”

Misunderstood T. rex

is a blog we are putting together as our family of ten grows. The blog is called Misunderstood T. rex because, like the infamous dinosaur, our large family is often misunderstood, profiled, and categorized simply because of our collective number of teeth.
This is a blog to help me remember our favorite recipes, and to help our future sons and daughters-in-law find out more about their spouses, what meals they like, and other things we'll throw into the mix.
There will also likely be drawings of T. rex's here and there because I draw T. rex's, being that we're practially related and all. Also, I'm not exactly sure what the plural for Tyrannosaurus Rex should be.
This introduction is much longer than I had planned.
