"Mommy. ...... mawwwwmeeEE!"
"Yes Jackson?" (as I put down the book that I was very engrossed in during the afternoon yesterday)
"Did you know that Tommy told me he ate a worm one time?"
"Did you know that he said it tastes like French fries?"
"Did you know that if you eat lots and lots of cake really fast with lots of frosting and then you go jumping up and down on the trampoline that you'll PUKKKEEEEEEEEEE!!! it all up?"
"Did you know that it happened to Tommy one time?"
"Did you know how I know that it happened to Tommy?"
"Did you know that he told me contrary to what Conner said, I believe him."
He's definitely getting older, my Jackson, when he starts to pick up on the influences of his peers and naturally their achievements. But who uses the word contrary at the age of 6.5?
It's precious and adorable but in the same breath it's sad because all of this, this growing up stuff, is. happening.way.to.fast for my liking!! Believe me I'm not one to boast about things, but it cracks me up how he uses vocabulary, he's far more "advanced" then I was at his age-just give me some barbies and books and a tree to read it in and I'm golden.
He grasps everything and engages himself at it 100%.
Onto other things, nothing much new here still very busy but all in good ways.-I guess. Don't give up on me my friends, I'm around even if it's every couple of days. I'm still walking bright and early on the weekdays and have even picked up a few stragglers that wanted to join in with me. So my two neighbor friends and I head out about 5:ooam every morning to gab and walk gab walk yakkity yak yakking away about our husbands, and our children, and our families and our dysfunctions and well, the sort of stuff you'd talk about with your friends I would guess-but in mom form.
I have to tell you that I'd never have guessed that I'd be one of those moms that walks and chats. But it's very refreshing and surprisingly I don't miss the quiet walks what so ever. Besides if I feel like I didn't get as adequate of a walk in the morning, then what I'll do is go to the track nearby and jog that for a mile or so with my music and quiet at the end of the day---usually though I am wiped out by 8:00am and ready to turn in to dreamland.
So how are you doing? Any plans in the next few weeks? I'll be by to visit hopefully within the next few days.
Aside from the crazy schedules of June life, I'm leaving with my boys to Florida June 30Th so I have that to prepare for as well as Sullivan's birthday-He'll be four July 1st.
Here's to a great Hump day and may all of you find something to make you smile today.
