Today we volunteered at Al’s Angels. They help families in need throughout CT. We helped box up food for holiday meals. It really felt good to lend a hand. So, needless to say, our day was busy!! (started at 5am…gasp!)
These are some things that you might have heard from us today…if you hung around long enough, or cared to listen…in no particular order.
Jack: I’m taking a Union break.
me: Pause this while I get much needed crackers.
Jack: (after I asked what game he was playing) Just Cause 3. I wasn’t playing, just hovering around in my wing-suit.
me: (talking to friend’s mom) Did you skate today? Ohhh…can you do a triple camel toe, or whatever that’s called?
Jack: I want melted ham goodness.
me: Heat the egg but don’t let it explode.
Jack: No my bed’s not made. I tore it apart looking for my phone.
This was when I was trying to help Jack study his science…
me: What pages should I test you on?
Jack: Just quiz me on these notes.
me: Um… I can’t read this writing Jack, it’s so tiny and messy. Does this say “plague”?
Jack No it doesn’t say plague! Arghh!! If you won’t help me study then how am I supposed to study!??
