It’s late. Jack is with his dad in NYC for two weeks of film camp at the NY Film Academy. He should be asleep now. I sent him a photo of my friend who’s in Privincetiwn right now eating at SCOTT CAKES!!!! When he saw the photo Jack said NOOOoOoOoOooO!!! I thought he was going to see it in the morning. Why is he still up after 10?? Who knows. He seems pretty wired. Whatchyall think??
OMG I’ve been so sick. So there. That’s why I haven’t posted. I think this is the longest stretch without a post. Yeesh. So I’m back. Again. Cough. Here’s what happened at bedtime. The fun never ends I tell you!
me: Goodnight sweetie. (I lean over to kiss Jack)
Jack: You smell like fish.
me: You know you’re my special boy, right?
Jack: Or the boy’s bathroom.
me: Even when you’re … how shall we say … a bit naughty, I still love you.
Jack: Or it’s like when the skunks tore up the bags in the garage.
me: You know that right?
Jack: Those are not all BAD things by the way.
me: (shutting door, going down two steps…)
me: (back up) What’s up Jack?
Jack: My eye itches. Can I have a wet paper towel?
me: Sure… Here you go.
Jack: Thanks. Goodnight.
me: Goodnight. (I make it all the way down stairs)
me: Sigh! (up the stairs) What’s going on?
Jack: I’m sorry, but my bed’s wet from the paper towel!
me: Why did you… Sigh, here move over.
Jack: All you’re doing is putting another blanket on top of it?
me: It’s fine. Goodnight.
me: (I make it downstairs AND into the bathroom)
me: Grrr. (stomp up the stairs) Come on Jack, what’s up?
Jack: I’m really sorry! But I can’t find Stripey! I’m sorry!
me: It’s okay…sigh, here let me turn the lights on. Close your eyes.
Jack: (with his head under the covers) Where is she?
me: Oh I don’t know, move over again. (I shake out the blankets and she goes flying across the room). Here.
Jack: Thanks. I’m sorry. You sound mad.
me: Just tired that’s all. It’s okay.
Jack: (leaning over to see his clock) What time is it now?
me: Just go to bed!
Jack: All that back and forth and it only took 10 minutes. Not bad!
me: What are you talking about?
Jack: I usually make you go up and down for at least a half hour.
me: WHAT?? Are you kidding me?
Jack: Hahaha! I mean… SORRY!!!!
