That'll Work

We spent 45 minutes in a traffic jam tonight while we worked our way past a car wreck. It's a good thing we bought a Sam's Club-sized bag of chips while we were out because that ended up being dinner.

Parents of the Decade

Jackson just dubbed us Parents of the Decade. Our secret is finally out that we don't have any pictures of the day he was born. That was our film camera era. I was busy producing a human that day, and my husband was a little too distracted/excited to remember the film.

Jackson's list of "Reasons My Parents Will Pay for My Therapy" is growing.

Me, watching a sulky kid: Are you depressed or impressed?
Jackson: How about oppressed?

I'm Holding Him to It

Jackson: "Mom, when you're in the nursing home, I'll bring you things. And when you're 92, I'll drive you places. I'll make sure Matthias sees you, too."
