You don't know Jack (#4)

Like all toddlers, Jackson provides the occasional nuggets of observation or wisdom or humor. These are generally unprompted, often silly or nonsensical, and usually come out of the blue with no context. Here are some recent ones:

A quick lunch from the trunk while sightseeing.

  • "I'm keeping my eyes open for naked ladies, but I don't see any more anywhere."

  • "If I sat here all day, I might get picked up by a helicopter. I might." 

  • "I like bonking my head."

  • "Mom, I must eat ONE raisin and then go to bed."

  • "I accidentally touched the fence again . . .  And again. And again."

It lurks. It watches. It pounces . . .

  • "I was not pleased with how you said that to me."

        Kate:    "Isn't Mommy awesome?"
          Jack:    "No. Daddy is awesome!"
          Kate:    "What am I?"
          Jack:    "A doctor."

  • "Why isn't Rachel my mommy?"

  • Upon being handed a liver cell stuffed animal: "Are hepatocytes good for cuddling?"

  • "Mommy, don't eat too much. You might get too big! You might."

  • "Daddy, you're a good man. Like Santa Claus. You give me presents." 

  • "Can I go inside and show that lady my balls?" Umm, your GOLF balls, right?

Is it a hepatocyte, or the whole damn liver?


  1. Love these! Kids say awesome stuff. Yesterday Nicholas told me that someone stole his bug bite from his head while we was sleeping. He didn't know who did it, however.

    1. Kids are hilarious! I hope Nicholas can catch the thief. How dare that thief steal his bug bite?!?
