he knows of a muffin man

when jackson first started watching shrek one, then two, then three, he became obsessed with asking me if i knew who the muffin man was. 
then he began asking everyone else.
in march i gave an update... but he hadn't met the muffin man yet...
he finally did in los angleles a few weeks ago.
he was so giddy and happy.

he said he was expecting drury lane to be further away 
and the muffin man to be bigger.




jack update:
::things i'm loving about jackson lately::

1. while watching dennis the menace together, he commented a few times when dennis was up to no good, "mom, that isn't very nice of him. he should go on timeout." or "that is a potty word."... ahhh, all this effort is working... however, he did laugh throughout most of it.


2. he loves to play outside with his cousins/friends. he smells like a schweaty puppy at the end of everyday.

3. when he came home from a playdate with his friend jane looking like this...
his expression when i first saw him was unforgettable.

4. how he squeezes my hand three times whenever he can. i love that he picked up on that.  {i.love.you.}


5. we were at nordstrom the other day and the pianist was playing the theme song from WALLE by louie armstrong, so he sat down next to him to listen until he was done. 



6. often he asks me awkwardly in front of someone we are with, "do you love me or _________ more?" 

7. how much he loves to shop.  more than me.


8. he thinks jesus plays wii.  i come downstairs to find him playing wii tennis. he says, "mom, jesus is playing with me. cool huh?" i am not sure what to tell him at this point. i think it's just a bearded character but i love his faith.

9. climbs and hides anywhere and everywhere. it's fun until he finds too good of a place to hide that takes me longer than it should to find him. walmart is a big place.



10. his patience while i tied his first real tie. it took me ten minutes to get it together. so unlike my past record time when i did it often.  it's amazing how rusty three and half years of non-tie, tying can make you.


11. he was explaining a description of one of his friends he plays with up in san francisco and says, "she has curly hair and googley eyes that sometimes look different ways!" 

12. jack: "mom, how old you have?"
me: "26"
"oh. this whole time long i thought you were four."


13. on our walk in newport, there was a house being fumigated and was persistently asking me if we could go jump in it.
...no jack, that isn't a bounce house.


14. he takes his shirt off any chance he gets.

15. he randomly will tell me he loves me. it makes me feel so stinkin' special.

16. how he has three cowlicks in his hair. i do hair and he would have three.


17. when we saw the movie TRON together he was the loudest there blurting out, "oh man, i love this movie!...oh i love this!... oh the lights!... i want a motorcycle!...can i do that!...oh no way!"... obvs he  was very into it and paid little attention to my whispers in his ear to quiet his excitement. 


18. we were going to noey's bowling party, and on the gift we were giving her had a group of disney princesses on it.  he says, "mom, how come the little mermaid isn't on here?" m: "well, she didn't make the cut." j: oh. i like princesses but not all their toys. they are weird."


19. how i find him somehow melted against my body in the morning.  he crawls into bed sometime around 5 am and fits perfectly next to me.  i need to read a book about what age this needs to stop but i don't want it to.  i love it.
{he is on the plane here. that would be awkward if i put one of us spooning on here. get real}

20. how much he loves fun.
