My kids (ages 2 & 4) so often do / say the quirkiest and funniest things that I thought hmmmm… I might as well write them down here and make it a monthly post.
Jack began a weekly soccer class through his preschool and he LOVES it! Every Tuesday I would pick him up from school he would gush about how “Max was there today” or “We all played soccer with Max!” or “I love learning soccer with Max!”. I had seen the young college guy in the jersey who I assumed was this special Max. One day as I was picking up Jack, this guy was packing up and leaving so I said, “It’s Max, right?”. To which he replied, “Coach Logan.” I was surprised and embarrassed, I apologized and quickly signed my kid out of school. As I was buckling Jack into the car I asked, “Honey… who is Max? Is Max someone in your class?” Jack laughed and said, “No, Max isn’t someone in my class! Max is a soccer ball!”
ME: Casey, please don’t scream like that.
CASEY: (scoff) Don’t be so scared, Mom.
JACK: (calling to his Dad) Honey, can you carry my truck down the stairs for me? … thanks, Honey
*Casey very carefully putting his socks on each hand like mittens*
CASEY: (whispers to himself) There. Perfect.
Jack was playing Among Us on my phone and it was his turn to be The Imposter. He wasn’t doing too bad! And after a few successful kills the players were all casting their votes and Jack VOTES FOR HIMSELF.
ME: Jack! Don’t vote for youself!
JACK: But Mom I have to! I’m the ‘poster!
*Casey trying to climb on my lap as I’m eating*
CASEY: I want to sit there!
ME: No baby, not right now. I’m eating dinner.
*Casey climbs on the chair next to me, waits a minute and then suddenly jumps into my lap*
CASEY: Oh noooooo! I fell!
JACK: Mom, Casey bumped me! Say sorry, Casey!
CASEY: Sorry Casey.
JACK: No, I’m Jack!
CASEY: I’m Casey.
One night before I tucked Jack into bed he said:
JACK: Mom, I had fun best friending with you today.
MY HEART 😭😭
