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.


(at home)

Jack: Can I ride my scooter?

me: Go ahead…

Jack: You’re the best Mom!


(dinner time)

Jack: I want to eat in FRONT of the video!!!

me: No.

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?

me: Sure.

Jack: Yay!

me: (Sigh…)


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…
