Yeah, he’s SO street smart!
Jack and I went out for a day of fun, which in this case involved an arcade, ice skating, a trip to the mall, and a lego advent calendar. A boy’s dream day!
And how did it almost end? With Jack plastered on the front of a red sports car like a hood ornament. He literally let go of my hand and sprinted across the parking lot to our car. He’s maybe done that once in 6 and a half years. The lady in the red car almost didn’t see him as she came squealing in. I was yelling all the way across the parking lot, and everyone could see me doling out the big lecture. Just to think if that woman had been going a little faster or if Jack was running a little slower.
To quote a famous comedian (any guesses?) “I brought you into this world, and I’ll take you out!” Meaning, I’m not letting some random car do the deed for me. Sheesh.
me: yadda yadda yadda…And you were almost HIT by that car!
Jack Mom, I’m a kid. I know how to survive in the world.
me: Ha! You barely made it past 3, what with the stitches to your head and the deadly allergies.
Jack: (getting in the car) I’ll never forget the day that YOU decided to get lame.
me: Huh? When?
Jack: Today. (slam!)
