The Friday Funnies #6

Happy, Happy, Friday to you, to you, to you!
(okay, so I have that damn birthday song from Sprout stuck in my head)

I’m guessing it isn’t a good sign when I pick up my infant from daycare and his teacher says to me, “you’re gonna have your hands full.”  Just a guess.

The Bear Hunt:
My husband and I were off to take the boys on a walk after work the other day.  As we passed our neighbor’s house and headed for the trail they informed us they had seen a bear on the trail earlier that day.  Assuming the bear would be long gone by then I joked with Jackson that we would go on a bear hunt and came up with clues that he should look for as we tracked the bear down.  Half way through our walk we stopped to let the dog swim in a creek.  As we turned to continue our stroll momma bear appeared in our path about 15 yards ahead.  “Jackson, look,” I exclaim as I point down the trail as if we are at the zoo, “it’s the bear, we found her!”  Meanwhile my husband is quietly responding, “turn around now, let’s go.”  “Wait, I want Jackson to see her.”  About this time momma bear hopped up on her hind legs and stands up to show us her full frame.   Zoo viewing over, hauling ass beginning!  I think I’ll save all future wildlife viewings for areas with protective glass.

When I got home from work on Monday Jackson could not wait to show me the “present” he had found me.  “Mommy, mommy, I have a present for you, look,” at this point he hands me a rotten apple that he had apparently found on the ground.  “Eat it, Mommy, eat it.”  Yummmmm!!

Jackson upon dressing himself earlier this week, “I look so cute in these shorts!”

A father at daycare, “Every day I ask (my daughter) what she did at school, and every day the answer is: Jackson.”  I got the impression that Daddy didn't really like the idea of his baby girl “doing” Jackson every day.

I had a new babysitter watch the boys for us last weekend.  The next day she sent me an email thanking me for the opportunity to spend time with my “well behaved and well-mannered boys.”  
My reply, “you either need a lot more work or you’ve emailed the wrong parent.”
