Still Laughing . . .

Saturday, August 25, 2012

My nugget starts middle school in just over a week, so I'm feeling VERY sentimental right now. I can't believe how quickly time has slipped by. He is lovely and frustrating and inspiring. He's my little soul mate. Going through all these old pics of him had me yearning for the days when he fit in my lap, the crook of my arm, and that little hollow under my chin. In that same spirit, here is another post about Little Man.
He thinks BIG:
Jared: I'm really good at opening doors for people. I think I could make a career out of it.
Sarah: There are a lot of doormen in New York.
Jared: I think I'll move there and make something of myself.
Sarah: It seems like you might waste that amazing brain of yours holding doors all day.
Jared: No way. I'll just tell witty puns while I do it.

He has SUPER powers:
"Nothing has matched my superior cerebral powers."
(when asked by his 5th grade teacher what subject they have covered has been the most challenging)
He gives the most amazing Compliments
On the drive to school one morning:
"You have such a big heart, Mom!"
and after a pensive moment,
"But surprisingly small arms."
He is ALWAYS thinking ahead:
Wearing his "Chuck Norris Makes the Honey Badger Care" shirt
Me: Jared, you need to put on a pajama shirt.
Jared: Okay, but if I ever need to go all "Chuck Norris" on someone, the shirt's coming off. It will only get in the way.

He gives great advice:

Jared: What are you doing?
Mario: Getting ready for my first big presentation.
J: Is Molly going to be there to help you?
M: No.
J: Your first real solo mission?
M: Yep.
J: Nice! Just remember, try not to get booed.

Still more to come . . .
