It's been awhile since I've shared any Jack-isms, but don't let that fool you.  This cutie still talks our ears off, and he's gone from sharing sentences to monologues. 

Yesterday Owen was napping and John was reading, so we decided to head out to a park for a little one-on-one time together.  As we were driving to the park, we noticed a garage sale and I asked him if he wanted to stop.  "Ok, Mom," he answered, "But just for two minutes!"

We got out of the car, and I made a beeline toward a mid-century style bookshelf that I thought might be perfect in our bedroom.  "Oh, isn't this cute, Jack?" I asked.  "I could put this in my bedroom for books!" 

He gave me a perfect side-eye, looked exasperated and loudly remarked, "We already have a bookshelf, Mom.  And we don't need this bookshelf.  So we are NOT going to get it.  We need to get back in our car, and go to the park.  Right now!" 

And so we did.  A special thanks to the combined efforts of Dave Ramsey and my two-year-old for keeping us on track with our budget this month!
