Jackisms

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?

I love the things that come out of two year olds mouths. I can't wait till they start spilling family secrets..or wait, maybe I can.

What a funny kid! What's with all that candy? At least they are smart enough to keep it out of sight until the end of the shopping! I love that he says kay guys...too cute!

That is soo funny!! Andrew always politely declines request to go to bed, clean his toys, eat his dinner by saying, "oh, no thank you."

That Jack, he is a character. The famous 2 is so fun, we are half way there and knowing somewhat of what you are refering to. Accept Daniel acts out because he can not speak yet. So I call him Mr. Dramatic. No more binky ali.... I pretended he lost it and that I could not find it. So for the last 2 nights I have said Elmo is waiting to sleep with you. (He has a elmo blanket) and ya he whimpers for a few but off to sleep he goes.

Take care

Zoe tells us to go in the other room if we are obstructing her naughtiness. It's hard not to laugh.

I love this!!! It makes remember when Claire and Jane used to pull stunts like that. Claire used to apologize for something and then under her breath whisper, "I not sorry." It was hilarious and maddening at the same time.
