Some of our Faves!
Once in awhile I think I will recap some of our favorite moments with Jack, prior to him turning 5. I wish I had started this blog much much sooner than I did. But that’s what journals were for, eh? Though these stories may be familiar to some of you reading this, they are always entertaining. Enjoy!

This one takes place in an outdoor bathroom stall in Wellfleet, MA, at a seafood restaurant by the ocean. Jack is in the stall with me. I think he was 3 1/2 at the time. There were two people waiting outside the door to the bathroom and the entire outdoor restaurant was right behind THEM!
me: (trying to pee quickly!) Jack! What are you doing? Don’t get too close to me please… (he was bent over and trying to peer at my butt)
Jack: It’s okay Mommy, I’m just checking for ticks.
(cue the loud laughter from outside the door)

Okay, this one also involves bathroom humor. I guess that goes hand in hand with having a boy in the house! Jack was two and a half and was standing in front of the toilet finishing his potty break.
Jack: (looking from me to the potty and back to me…pondering…) Why Mommy no got da peanuts? (translation: Why doesn’t Mommy have a penis?). I laughed so hard I almost pulled something.
