Jack is 2 years and 8 months old. He loves to talk. All the time. And sing. All the time. And ask questions. All the time. Consequently, we are blessed with unexpected and sometimes pretty witty responses and reflections about life. I am doing my best to write them down, and I thought I would begin posting a few, when I think they are especially funny, sweet, smart, or just plain surprising. And maybe some of them will be none of the above to my readers, but will be significant to me because he is my precious boy, who brings a smile to my face and to my heart every single day. One more thing: Lest you think I have abandoned all attempts at correct spelling in these particular posts (if you really know me you will know this is NOT the case), please be aware that I am only hoping to aid in your understanding of his little voice and toddler speech…which I SO love. So here goes…
