I want to share a couple things...mostly so I don't forget.
Jackson has always been a very serious child. If he does or says things that we laugh at he gets VERY embarrassed. That is just his personality. But he is a VERY loving child. Always giving hugs and kisses. Always.
Every morning when I take Jack to school he always gives me lots of kisses and hugs...well every morning that is until this week. So far every single morning this week he has refused to give me any. Finally after 3 days of this behavior I asked him why. His reply: "Mommy I will give you kisses at home. Its NOT COOL at school" NOT COOL!?!?!? WHAT! He is only 6! GEEZ! At first I was a little hurt by this, but really it makes me kinda laugh...was not prepared for it already at this age, but I knew the day would come...so I must embrace it. Of course now he is also asking to ride the school bus to school...um..no way, no how. I grew up riding the school bus...I learned a lot on the bus...enough said. Besides, I really enjoy taking Jack to school and getting to pray with him and talk about what he will do at school. Its important to me to be able to do those things. Plus, our school bus runs before 6:20 am...no way am I getting up that early.
Below is a recent picture of Jack (taken during a 2nd family photo shoot)
Madeline, well what can I say...her nickname before she was even 1 was Madzilla...she earned it. She is a character. Always keeping us on our toes, laughing our heads off and pulling our hair out (usually all at the same time) She says and does some of the funniest things. I could write a whole book on Madi-isms.
(though I wonder if anyone besides me would really find it that funny) So on to Madeline's funny...
This week has been a really wild weather week. Lots of (much needed) rain, storms, and tornadoes. The other day as we were taking shelter in the basement because of tornadoes, I was playing games with the kids and watching our favorite suspender wearing weatherman on the tv. When very seriously, and might I add, very concerned, Madeline said: "Mommy, does Daddy have tornadoes in Ass-Ghan-a stan-a stan?" I asked her to repeat it and she said it the same way. I know I should correct her to say it the correct way, but it was too funny...and hey, it was a moment that I could really use a laugh. Not to mention Daddy is still at the mob station and has not yet made it to Ass-Ghan-A stan-A stan...but that is too confusing for her so I just go with it. I will work on that pronunciation with her...soon...
Below is a picture of Madeline from our 2nd shoot...I love her smile...so full of happiness
So those are just a couple funnies from this week. I will share some more of our family pics from the 2nd shoot soon. (and all the other posts I promised to do too) There is just not enough time and not enough me...but I will get to it =)
