I’m always amazed when I realize that Jack is doing something just like Chris and I. I think the first time I really noticed it was when he was really into shooting baskets last spring. When he missed, we always said, “oh man.” Soon, he was saying “Oh Man” every time he missed a shot. He still says it when he misses a shot or ball.
The other day, Jack and I were sitting on the bed and he saw a little scratch on my foot. He said, “oh no Mama ouchie” and kissed it. It was so sweet, because that’s what I do to him. And at bedtime that night, he was lying next to me, and leaned over and kissed me and started patting my back- just like I do to him every single night.
He is a very sweet little boy, and I love that about him. But, it also reminds me that he is watching everything we do and learning from us, so we need to be on our best behavior and teach him well.
