The launch

And we're off. Having discussed this, tossed around a dozen blog names, plotted and planned for months, we're finally entering the blogging world.

So awww trouble, where does that come from? Well, who remembers when but the very first book Elizabeth ever responded to was Goosey Goose.

If you mess with Goosey Goose, you are in trouble.

Awww, Trouble.

Not with her father. Not with her mother. Not with her sister. Not with her brother.

But with her. Uh huh, uh huh. Goosey Goose. Uh huh, uh huh.

That's it, in its entirety. So one day, reading it to her, we ask where's the goose, and she points to Goosey Goose! And there was much rejoicing. We bought Chris Raschka's Thing-y Thing entire series.

Soon after that, one night at dinner, we had a little bit of acting out. First Rich, then I, said awwww trouble! And she looked from one of us to the other, her bottom lip started pushing out, and the tears flowed. Punished by Goosey Goose.

Wish it still worked.

But the fact we can't remember when exactly this all happened is reason enough for the blog. Not quite up to speed on a baby book or scrapbooking, but blogging, now that's something we can do. Welcome to Awww Trouble. Most of the time we think it's Susan and Rich in trouble. Elizabeth? Well, she's got it all figured out.

Susan and Rich
