Jack. He is great. He is 4 1/2 and feisty. He is starting to tell me he doesn't cuddle anymore. He won't let me get him dressed anymore. And he takes showers now. Showers, I know. Sometimes, Ethan will let Jack use some of his Axe shower gel and it worries me because that stuff is supposedly liquid sex in a bottle. Have you seen the commercials?
Jack just got orthodic inserts for his shoes. And they might as well be gilded in gold because they are costing us a fortune. Sadly, they aren't gold, they are neon yellow. He got them because he has inherited a few weird foot traits from his daddy. Thanks a whole lot Ethan.
Do you want to know how to get your 4 year old to be quiet in sacrament meeting? When candy, cars, crayons, books and death threats don't work, teach him how to write potty words. Last Sunday, by the closing hymn, reverent Jack was able to write "poop", "bum" and "fart". Ethan and I kept looking at each other as Jack was gleefully writing the words of his dreams. "Is this what our lives have come to???" Apparently yes.
Jack has a thing for potty words and inappropriate words. And I have decided to pick my battles. I decided the fight is either between "butt" and "sexy". I have chosen to fight over him saying "sexy". So we will have to let "butt" slide. If you meet Jack and he starts saying "butt", just be glad he isn't tell you that you are sexy. Or maybe not. It could be flattering. But probably not because he is 4.
