Just Ask Jack

If you've got a burning question, I've got just the person to answer it: Jack. Our ever-curious 3 1/2 year old is full of answers these days. Here are just a couple of examples:

Sam has gotten to that stage that he must remove his shoes when he is in the car. I remember Jack going through a similar stage, but can't for the life of me remember how long this lasts. It doesn't matter if we are going an hour down the road or around the corner, he will do everything he can to get those suckers off. It can make running multiple errands quite frustrating. Last week after opening his door to get him out, I notice he has again removed his shoes. I say aloud, "Sam, did you take your shoes off again? What am I going to do with you?" Jack looked at me and said very matter of factly, "Putting them back on."

Another evening last week, I let Sam enjoy himself at dinner and feed himself his yogurt. Of course, I knew what would happen, but a bath was on tap for that night anyway. I was in the kitchen, and Sam's back was to me. So, I asked Josh, who was standing closer to the table, "how's Sam doing over there?" Josh's said, "He's doing great, Mama," with such joyful encouragement. Jack looked at him as if he were crazy and piped in, "He's got it ALL over him!"

Glad to know I'm not the only one letting my baby feed herself yogurt or applesauce or ice cream....I was afraid I was just lazy, but obviously they're getting bigger and I'm in denial.
