A Particularly Cute Evening

On October 21, I picked Jack up from preschool. Daddy went into the city to have dinner with Donovan, Gus, and Jenn. Jack was very cute and talkative that evening. Some highlights… Driving home… Jack: What O’Ryan doing? (Orion is Jack’s cousin, my nephew) Mommy: He’s sleeping. Jack: Uh-uh, the sun is not down! He … Continue reading

A Good Night to Be a Mommy

Jack was ever-so-cute tonight. The really cute stuff is at the end, so if you’re pressed for time, I suggest to scroll to the play-like dialog stuff. I picked him up from school early so we could buy new shoes. In the car, every time we went under an overpass, he would cry “A tunnel! … Continue reading

What Your Name?

Jack is learning that everyone has more than one name. He knows his: Jackson Louis Chittister.  “I got two O’s,” he says, “Mommy and Daddy got one O.” This is true. In stories, he asks what the characters’ names are, and if we don’t know, I’ll try to get him to make them up. He’ll … Continue reading

Why My Son Is Cute and Smart

(originally published on LiveJournal) It’s been awhile since I did a good Jack post, so I decided to write some random cute stuff that he’s been doing lately. The first thing that comes to mind involves his books. He’s always loved to turn the pages in books, and he loves to read. He can say … Continue reading

The Fair

Tonight, we had the quintessential family experience: We went to the County Fair. Mostly, I thought that Jack would like the livestock. He loves cows, and is learning how to say the names and/or sounds of many farm animals. He now has: Moo, Cow, Baa, Goat, Hop Hop (bunnies), Cuck Cuck (chickens), and Pig. Getting … Continue reading
