Jack on Being a Good Husband

Age 8:

One morning we were driving in the car to take Jack to school.  I looked at myself in the rear view mirror and made a comment about how scary I looked without make up.
Jack: You look beautiful without it.
Me: Aww. Thanks Jack.  You are so sweet.
Jack (pause): Mom, on a a scale of 1-10, how happy do you think my wife will be being married to me?
Me: Oh man, I'd say a 10 for sure.
Jack: I'd say a 9. Because you can't always be perfect.
Me: What types of things do you think you would do to not make it a 10?
Jack: Oh you know...the same kind of stuff Dad does to annoy you.

Jack on Love Interests

Age 8:

We were out to dinner and we were asking Jack about crushes and if anyone had them at school.  Afterwards, we asked if there was anyone he liked. Jay asked, "So who do you have your eye on?". Jack shrugged his shoulders and indicated there wasn't anyone special. He stated, "I'm sleeping at night with an open door."


Jack on Cheerleaders

Age 8:

One day we were driving down the road and saw some cheerleaders holding signs for a car wash and yelling.
Me: Roll down the window so we can hear what they are yelling.
Jack: Don't. I don't want to listen to their tacky cheers.

Jack on Teeth

Age 7:

About a year ago, Jack lost his tooth but ate it by accident.  A couple days later, I overheard Jack say to Megan, "Hey, I just found my tooth in my poo. You wanna see it?" 

(For the record, it wasn't his tooth. It was corn. But I can see how he might be confused.)
