Pride for my boy

Jack recently had an assignment at school the required him to list his likes and dislikes. I found my heart swelling with pride and also laughing out loud a little. Random Halloween photos are mixed in, just for fun, but in case you were looking for relevance to the post, go no further. There isn't any.

Here's a sample:

Eight things he really likes are:

- playing with my brother (yes, that got an out loud awwwwww)
- having my friend over
- going over to my friend's house
- Bon Jovi music (he's got good taste, no?)
- movie night (Friday nights are movie night at our house)

First of all, I want to just give a shout out that none of his favourite "things" are objects or toys or other possessions. Instead they are doing things with people he cares about. And playing with his brother is #1? Well if my heart didn't about break with pride upon reading that.

Now for the dislikes, don't worry it's short:

- Jazz music (seriously, he's 8, does he even know what Jazz music is? *insert laugh out loud here*)
- winter (hmm, I think I get where the Jazz music dislike is coming from...perhaps maybe, just maybe he's heard me disclose my dislike for it but winter, never. I love winter. *insert evil laugh here*)

Or evil Dr. Jay performing Jack-O-Lantern's lobotamy.

He's quite the kid, our Jack (not to be confused with Jack-O-Lantern, he is definitely not our kid), and we wouldn't have it any other way.

That is the absolute sweetest thing. I'm glad your boys are so close, it's so obvious in what they do, and how you write about them. Just wonderful. You and Jay are doing an awesome job. Even if Dad has a crazy wicked knife-grip - as long as that comes along but once a year, I guess you guys are okay LOL!

(I think that's hilarious that your boy likes Bon Jovi and Jazz... too cute!)

That kid is so cute, inside and out.

And remind me not to get on Jay's bad side... ;-P

We'll need to work on the Jazz. Let's just start with an appreciation of it, then we'll move on to full on like.

But the kid's got a point--winter bites!!
