    Recent Jack Stories


    • Jack was throwing one of his class A tantrums and I asked him to go in his room until he was ready to be kind, so off he went to his room. A couple minutes later he Saunders into the living room and I said "Are you ready to say sorry?" He looked at me and said "NO!" and quickly ran back into his room.

    • The other day Jack and I were eating Breakfast and I thought the milk smelt a little funny so I took a spoonful from his bowl to taste it. Jack looked at me horrified and lifted up his bowl and drank all the milk leaving his Cheerios soggy and milk less.

    • I am always singing and the other day I was singing some church song and Jack came up to me and said "Nice sing mummy" this was a pleasant surprise because often he says "no more mummy."

    • Yesterday we went to the park and Jack tried to attempt the big kid park. It was hopeless. He couldn't climb it and there were too many kids playing on it for me to accompany him. In his dismay he laid on the floor with his face in his hands. A three year old boy walks up and says "Dude, you OK?" Jack lifts his head up and explains in Jack language his sadness the boy told him that everything would be OK. As the Big three year old Jack watched him in awe, I believe in mind he said "I want to be just like him when I am three."
