The Many Moods of Jack – Volume 5
Wow, talk about your typical New Englander. This kid’s moods are changing like the weather these days.
(picking Jack up from Camp)
Jack: Noooooo!!! I wanna stay and playyyyy!!!!! (kick, throw toy, have fit on the floor)
me: When you have a fit, we leave. If you come say hi to me and ask if you can play a little longer, I’ll let you. It’s the same rule as last summer. Let’s go.
Jack: (all the way down the hall) Noooooo!!!!! I’ll be goooooooddddddddd!!!
(in the car)
Jack: Oh, thanks for the snack Mom!
me: (raised eyebrow) Feeling better?
Jack: Yeah, I just wanted to play, but there are 21 lunatics in that class, so it’s better that I leave.
me: I don’t think you should call them that.
Jack: (picks up a book and starts reading) It’s okay, they know they’re lunatics.
Jack: Can I ride my scooter?
me: Go ahead…
Jack: You’re the best Mom!
Jack: I want to eat in FRONT of the video!!!
Jack: (bursts into tears) Waaaahhhhh!!! You never let me DO anything!!! Wahhhhhhhhh!!!
me: Want to eat outside?
Jack: (tears abruptly stop) Really, on the deck?
He was seriously changing moods about every 10 minutes. I’ll have to look that up. Maybe it’s a vitamin deficiency. Or wait, maybe it’s because he’s 6. Sigh…
