Every morning he wakes up (still in his crib) and calls in his loudest yelling voice, “MAH-mmy!” No matter if it’s 6AM or 9AM - the whole house can hear him. And if I don’t answer right away it turns into a stern, “Mo-m!” (And why has he not learned how to climb out of that thing yet?)
Yesterday he pulled out the bottom drawer of the dishwasher and pushed it around the kitchen/family room for a good half hour. The other kids would walk through and say, “What is Jackson playing with?” They recognized it of course, but could not place it. When it finally clicked that it was part of the dishwasher they tried to correct the problem, but 2 minutes later he had it pulled out again rolling on the brick floor.
He sneezed a big productive sneeze right into his hand. And what else is there to do with a big booger mess than to lick it off your hand? He had himself cleaned up in no time.
It was one evening just before bed. I go downstairs to collect Jackson and what is he doing? Filling cups of water and shamelessly pouring them onto the ground. Not into any container – straight onto the ground! All for the sake of watching water flow from his cup.
