Closing the night out by scrubbing black sharpie marker off of the stainless steel refrigerator. Just lovely.
Jack clearly recalled a memory of something that happened when he was less than 2 years old, that we haven't talked about since. Crazy.

After we told him we'll be going to TN for vacation, Jack said, "I was thinking maybe Africa or Korea instead." He's tough to please.
Earlier today, Jack asked me if he ever said funny things when he was little.

On the way home from school, Jack said, "Mom, heaven sounds exhausting."
"Jack, you need to stop talking. It's rest time." "Mom, if you just ignore me I'll probably get bored and stop."

After preschool yesterday I asked Jack, "What did you learn today?" He responded, "It's a long story. I don't really have time right now."

Me: Jesus loves it when we talk to him. Jack: I love it when he talks to me. Me: What does he say? Jack: I'll tell you when you grow up.
I just heard Jack say to Kyle, "I just told mom she could cuddle with me. You know what that's called? Compassion."
