Conversations with Jack

Now that Jack has become such a little person, I love the conversations we have. He still speaks in some small degree of jibberish when he really gets going, but you can pick out the majority of words enough to really understand him. At any rate, here is a conversation we had this morning, while I was getting Katie dressed for school. It was just too funny not to share.

Jack: Mommy! Where your pants are? You don't have any pants on!

Mommy: Mommy is wearing a dress today.

Jack (sternly): Mommy, you NEED pants on.

Mommy: No, Mommy has a dress on! Just like Katie, see? I don't wear pants with a dress.

Jack: Oh. (pause) You a princess, Mommy?

Mommy (blushing): Aww, do you think Mommy looks like a princess?

Jack (again stern): No Mommy, you supposed to say 'Thank you' now.

Mommy: Oh, ok. Thank you Jack, that made Mommy feel good.

Jack: You're welcome, Mommy. You're welcome. (pause) I want a waffle. And a banana. And toys.

He is an absolute riot. The joy they both bring me, day in and day out, is just immeasurable. I always knew being a Mommy would be awesome, but I never knew it could possibly be THIS great!
