Conversation of the morning...

Good Morning America is on the TV as I'm making breakfast.

Jack: Mom, they just said on TV that a dude is trying to marry another dude.
Me: Uh huh.
Jack: Has that ever happened?  A dude marrying another dude?
Me: Uh huh.
Jack: What about a girl marrying another girl?  Has that ever happened?
Me: Uh huh.
Jack (walking out of the kitchen): Whoa.

...Aaaannnd scene.

New school year, new thoughts from Jack

Oh, Jack- my funny, funny child. Every day he says something interesting. It's like he has this internal monologue that has no filter so we just get everything he's thinking first hand.

Here are some examples just from the last 24 hours:

This morning was his first day of first grade. As I prepared his breakfast, he mused about what first grade would be like. He was focused on where he would sit and said,"I want to get to the front of the class. Sitting close to the front will be the best place to see, hear, and learn!"

Then tonight he was petting our dog, George. George started to lick Jack's hand and he looked up and said, "George is getting Jiggy with it!"

And when Jay was putting Jack to bed, Jack was explaining to Jay that he needed a catch phrase. When Jay asked him why, he said he needs it for when he does "stuff that is awesome."

Man, I love that kid!
