Happy "Mudder's" Day! Or a few reasons why my kid is awesome.
My husband reports that they had already chosen a different card when Jack spotted this one and demanded they buy it instead. I couldn't be more touched by that considering this one has a picture of "baby eggs" on it, and Jack and I had spent the last few weeks watching our robins nest, lay eggs, and raise their babies in our backyard. It's perfect.
He also chose those gorgeous roses, declaring them "bootifull." Yes, Jack, they are beautiful!
Other amazing things that Jack is up to right now:
*He has started calling me "mudder". I went from mama, to mommy to mother in 18 short months.
*He asks for "2 kisses".
*When he wants to know what you are eating he will say "What's in your teeth?" I jokingly asked him what was in his teeth the other day and he replied, "Hmmm, some cat hair." LOL Yes, Jack, everything around here has cat hair on it.
*Awhile back I was worried that Jack wasn't asking any questions yet. Of course I was worried for nothing, because now he must ask me at least 100 times a day, "What are you doing?" He is particularly fond of this game in the car.
*He loves an old Woody Guthrie Song, "Riding in my car". He will ride in the car trying to imitate the noises Guthrie makes in that song. You can have a listen to a clip here at Amazon. If you don't already have this CD for your kids, you should!
*His new favorite book is Tumble Bumble . His dad brought it home from a yard sale for him, and only a week later he nearly has the entire thing memorized already. All morning he has been wandering around saying, "tumble bumble up the stairs."
*This morning when I asked him if he had a present for me, he ran off as fast as he could go telling my husband that they had to go downstairs and get a present for mommy right now! Then he climbed up in "the flowers bed" with me and opened it. Between that and a very good trip to the flea market, we are having a lovely Mudder's Day.
I hope the same is true for all of you!
