Today we spent most of the day at home…and the toys strewn all over the house account for that. It was a good day to reconnect with toys and for me to do some things around the house. I’m already caught up on laundry from our vacation so that’s a good start!
Some funny things came out of Jack’s mouth today…
Me: Where did your pajamas go? (As he jumped into bed buck naked this morning)
Jack: My foot felt funny so I took them off.
“I have chicken bumps, Mommy!” (also known as goose bumps)
Me: Why is Casey crying Jack?
Jack: She was standing on the ice [hardwood floors] and just fell down. I didn’t do anything…she just fell on her own. It would be better if she was on the carpet.
“Can I pick your clothes out for you today, Mommy?” Luckily I already had them picked out, but I’m curious what he would have selected for me.
“Let’s go look at the beautiful fish.” (while stopping by the vet’s office)
Jack: Mommy, where is Tugger?
Me: I don’t know, probably upstairs sleeping. Why?
Jack: I made this for her. [He shows me something he cut out of purple construction paper and on which he glued some purple scraps.] It’s a picture of her face.
—10 minutes later—
Jack: I changed my mind Mommy. This is a picture of you. It’s for you, not Tugger.
Me (inner sarcastic monologue): Precious. I’ll treasure this forever. Let’s put it right on the fridge. Purple, dog-faced Mommy.
