Jack barely speaks in full sentences, yet things are still coming out at his tender age of two that need documentation.
Jackism #1 - Our JoAnn's Fabric store is so obviously designed with marketing motives in mind by someone WITHOUT children. The checkout line resembles a disneyland line complete with ropes and switchbacks. On both sides of the line there are shoulder high shelves lined with every candy (common and obscure) that you can imagine.
There is no hope for distraction. Your kids are enveloped by temptation. While we were in this line the other day, Jack was standing up in the cart (yes, I've been told it's a hazard) reaching over, inching towards the candy and telling me, "Mom, don't see me. kay?"
Jackism #2 - On our way to church, we always pass by a park. Without fail, Jack usually requests some play time. This Sunday was no different.
J - "I want play park!"
us - "Not now sweetie. We get to go to church and learn about Jesus."
J - "NO. NOT JESUS! I want park!"
us - "Sorry Sweetie. We get to see your friends at nursery and learn about Jesus."
J - (the rest of the way to church in a chanting fashion) "NO. Not Jesus, not Jesus, not Jesus....!"
Jackism #3 - Almost always before breaking a rule or getting into mischief while we are around, Jack will announce his intentions to us by saying something like, "Don't say NO me! Kay guys? Don't say NO." I love that he refers to us as "guys". Everything ends in "kay guys?"
I have a feeling I will need to keep track of these the older he gets. I just can't wait to see what's been trapped in that mind of his for a couple years! Or can I?
