Subaru Confession: Maturity??

Jack and I were in the car on the way to school this morning. He was giving me an update on one of his classes and why his seat was moved. (Not his fault).

me: Well, I bet you can concentrate better now, at the very least.

Jack: Yep. There’s a time for work and a time for play.

me: (!) What have you done with Jack…? That sounds… mature!

(I swear he winked and pointed a finger at me)

Totally not what I expected him to say. Right??

As we drove along we talked about a few other things… and about a friend of his that I mistakenly thought did something that someone else did.

me: Well, I’m glad that wasn’t him because I would have been really disappointed.

Jack: And now you finally sound like a typical parent.

me: Sheesh.

Jack’s unique brand of … humor

me: If you really want to do a favor for someone or help them, don’t ask them if they want help, because most people say no no it’s ok I’m fine.

Jack: Then how do you help?

me: You have to tell them you’re going to help and just say you’ll do whatever it is. Like if you know someone needs a ride somewhere you don’t say Do you need a ride? You just say hey I’ll pick you up at 7.

Jack: No matter what the agreed upon time was?

me: Sigh, yes if they need a ride at 9 you force them to take a ride at 7. Sheesh.

Jack: (excited to tell me a joke) This guy went to the doctor and said “I have a problem. I always poop at 8am on the dot.” The doctor says “Well what’s wrong with that? That sounds very healthy.” And the guy says, “I wake up at 9am.”

me: Ha. Where do hear this stuff?

Jack: Around.

Funny Jokes

Is that redundant? LOL. Jack and I were driving to school this morning, we missed the bus, sort of on purpose. The alarm went off and I just didn’t want to get up. So I shut it off and pretended that we had a power outage ha ha. But of course cats and dogs have their internal clocks and they won’t let me sleep very long. 😦

Quick update on cats and dogs… Moca caught the lovely virus, or parasite rather, Giardia. This was right before Thanksgiving, and she’s only just now gotten slightly better. Talk about a skinny dog OMG. And Bella went in for dental surgery on Monday so she is in a little bit of pain this week and not eating well… as you could expect.

Jack broke his foot again for the second time, or toe rather, same foot same break same spot same everything.

My house is like an infirmary, the morning routine goes like this, feed the cat, feed the dog, feed the boy, give the cat liquid pain medicine, give the dog one and a half pills for tummy troubles, wrap the boys toe, wipe the dogs foot and other toe because she also has an infection LOL, makes probiotic in the dogs lunch so that the dog walker can feed that to her at noon, repeat.

But it’s the season of CHEER I tell you! Perpetual hope! I’m still smiling.

So, we were driving to school and I was listening to Christmas music and being goofy and telling dumb jokes, and laughing at them by myself naturally.

Jack: that’s not funny.

Me: what? You mean my joke? Oh I get it, it’s not funny because no one’s laughing.

Jack: no, it’s not funny because you don’t know how to tell a joke.

Me: Sigh.

Games, Subaru Confessions

XBox live and other important things … like I have a new 12-year-old!

OMG the new puppy totally made me forget that Jack turned 12 and I need to update my banner at the top point point. I will do that this weekend. Lots going on in Jack’s world.

All heard from the back seat of my car…

Jack: dude I totally got Xbox live for my birthday.

Friend: OMG that is awesome! Now we can play together! Did you get silver or gold.

Jack: I got gold. Silver totally sucks.

Me: silver what? What are you talking about.

They pretend like they don’t hear me.

Friend: Yeah you totally can’t even talk on silver. It’s a waste.

Jack: I totally want to play BO 3.

Me: Hey,which version of halo is that?

Jack: nothing in that entire sentence made any sense mom. It’s zombies!

Me: Oh. Um. I totally meant call of duty! I don’t know why I said halo.

They were back to ignoring me again.

Friend: Dude, you have so many awesome games maybe we can trade like if we switch each other’s gaming name we can totally use each other’s accounts and like play each other’s games and like do other stuff!

At least that’s what I thought he was saying ha ha.

Anyway apparently Xbox live is something that gives you magical powers and makes everyone love you.

The end.

Define annoying…

Today we had a 90 minute delay due to snow so I had to drive Jack to school. We made a quick stop at Dunkin’ Donuts for hot cocoa. The puppy Moca went into her crate nicely and Bella was enjoying the peace and quiet.

We were driving along when Jack saw one of his friends standing outside waiting for the bus.

Jack: Hey you scrub!

me: why are you yelling that at that kid? Is that what you guys call each other?

Jack: no, I called him a scrub because he’s annoying.

Me: oh, I thought he was your friend, but he’s annoying?

Jack: he’s not really my friend he’s just very annoying so I call him a scrub.

Me: well, how annoying to you have to be to be called a scrub? What does he do?

Jack: he just ask annoying that’s all

Me: is he annoying like a bully? Like poking at you and stuff?

Jack: no he doesn’t do that he just annoys me.

Me: what exactly does he do to annoy you? Tell me what he does that’s annoying to you.

Jack: kind of like what you’re doing right now.

Me: sigh…

I’ll leave you with a recent photo of Jack from the other day, and one of Moca this morning with her sweater and boots. We had just come in from shoveling the driveway ha ha.

Jack: Can we move to Canada?


Things heard while driving Jack and his friend to school today. 

Jack: I voted for Tom Hanks.

Friend: Donald Trump is a businessman, so he can fix the economy.

me: let’s hope so…

Jack: We can still move to Canada!

Friend: Canadians talk funny.

Jack: Does this sound funny: free healthcare!?

me: Geez…

Friend: Things Donald Trump will do: Paint the White House gold!!!

And now on to things that are a little more important in a 7th graders mind…

Jack: Mom, it’s picture retake day, and I’m wearing the wrong shirt and I look like a scrub! We have to go home so I can put on my blue collared shirt!! And, I should’ve packed shorts for gym, in case we do interpretive dance! Our worst fear is that someone is there taking pictures for the yearbook, ugh!!

me: Sigh…
