I’m not sure where it came from, but Max and I decided that Simba (from The Lion King) goes “wiggle wiggle pounce!”. We have taught Jack that, starting when he was just a wee small baby. We extended that to all cats, ferrets, and occasionally other animals as well. Last night, Dino (pronounced Dye-No, not like The Flinstones‘ character) was “wiggle wiggle pouncing” on Jack’s new blocks. When it came time to be done playing and go upstairs, Max asked for a night-night hug and kiss. Jack immediately backed away…
Then he squatted down a bit, wiggled his bum and said, “Wiggle wiggle wiggle” and then “POUNCE” as he leapt into Max’s arms.
Cutest. pounce. ever.
Later, we were reading the book of friends and family that I finally printed out. We have Jason & Paula and their son in it. I asked Jack if he thought Benjamin looked like him. Jack said, “Yeah, because we have curly hair.” Then he said, and I swear I didn’t prompt this:
“He kind of looks like me but I look better.”
I love my son. I look forward to spending more time with him.
