Me: "Please don't touch that... those are Uncle Chris's supplies for his job fair.  Uncle Chris is trying to find a new job."

Jack: "I need a job!  I need a job!"

Yes, sir, kiddo!  Start pulling your weight around here, geeeeeesh!  What have you been doing for the last 2 1/2 years anyway!?   Haha.


Upon me walking into his bedroom to read some books to Jack before naptime:

Jack: "Where is Owen?"

Me:  "He's downstairs, taking a nap."

Jack: exasperated  "Get my brother!  I need him!  Don't leave him downstairs, Mom.  That is NOT a good idea."

Jack, after passing a little gas: "Did you fart, Mom?"

Me: "No, I did not.  I think you did."

Jack: "I think Owen did."

We've only just begun with the sibling scapegoat, I'm thinking!

From the mouths of babes...

I need to get to the store and buy a special notebook so I can remember all these hilarious daily Jack-isms, but until's today's installment.

Jack: "NO! NO! NO!  I do NOT want to read Puzzlehead tonight.  I NEED Click, Clack, Moo!"

Me: "Why are you being so crabby tonight?"

Jack: "Sometimes I'm crabby, ok, Mom?  Sometimes I'm a happy boy and sometimes I'm crabby, ok?  That's it."

True story, my boy, true story.  I'm picking up what you're throwing down.

on the difference between men and women.

yesterday we got a little peek at the tiny baby in utero.  i only had one ultrasound with jack, so it was pretty neat to see this baby so far along.

my take on the experience: "he has his brother's nose and lips!  i can't believe how much he looks like jack!"
john's take: "well, this means jack will be giving him a fake ID once he turns 21."

my due date is officially moved and i'm measuring past full term... so chances are, we'll meet this little man.. SOON!  so excited!
