Anticipation

During a recent hair cut last week, Jackson sat under a black smock while the hair stylist finished trimming up some stray hairs.
"You look so cute," she told him.
"But, you haven't even seen my orange shirt underneath, yet!" he responded.

Talking Points

After asking Jackson to put his shoes on this afternoon:

"Mama? In the morning, we are going to have a discussion about you being so mean. We are going to talk after I'm done resting."

Magical

While packing up for the Thanksgiving trip to Gram and Grandaddy's, Jackson prepped his own back pack.
He never leaves for long periods of time without the following:
a microphone (for impromptu concerts)
a usb port (for hooking up the microphone, apparently)
a camera (it doesn't work but he still takes photos)
a backhoe
Elmo
and his phone (typically his "permission phone")

When Gram and Grandaddy arrived to pick him up, Grandaddy suggested Jackson climb in the car seat and put his tiny back pack in the backseat as well.
At the time, Jackson was enjoying the bells and whistles that go along with sitting in the drivers seat. So instead of getting out and loading up the car, Jackson tossed his backpack over the console to the back seat and as my father watched the backpack go whizzing past into the back seat Jackson declared:
"Watch this! It's magical!"

Authenticity

Me: Jackson! What do you say?

Jackson: Excuuuuse me!

Mam: Was that real?

Checking It Twice

Oh mom! We could get dad a snuggie!

No. He had one years ago.

I know! Wanna get him a new one? C'mon! Like a funny one?

No. He'll kill himself.

Lil' Surgeon General

During a kid-friendly, grown-up get together, we enjoyed a cozy fire pit out on the deck. Eventually, Jackson made his way from the kid's playroom to the grown-ups huddling around the toasty fire. Once outside, he noticed a few of the adults were smoking.
Without hesitation, Jackson glanced over at me and loudly announced:
"Mama! That lady is not making very good choices."

Heart Beat

Mama?

Yes.

Do you know what my heart is saying?

What?

It says 'I love mamas.'

Did you know that mine just stopped?

One Man Band

Just another laundry day musical.

You Decide

Jackson woke up this morning singing Black Eyed Peas songs.

Good parent or bad parent?

Happy Halloween
