One morning, I hear a suspicious "clink" coming from Jackson's room.  Upon entering, I see the window lock on the radiator.

Dad: What are you doing?

Jack: I want to go out the window.

Dad: You can't go out the window!

Jack: But it will be sooo much fun.

Dear Jackson,

Dear Jackson,

If being close to you when you are sick makes you feel loved, but guarantees that I will be sick too, I will gladly spend the rest of my life carrying tissues.

At dinner tonight Jackson was playing a rhyming game.  The first word was "lad."

I prompted him, "what is the opposite of happy?"

"SAD!!!," Jackson replied.

"When I'm angry I'm..."


Finally, I said, "What do you call a little boy who is being naughty?"

Good Morning Feet

I woke up one morning recently and Jackson's head was on Nicole, and both of his feet were warmly tucked between my ass and my underwear.
