Jack on Self-Reflection

Age 11:

Jack: Mom, you want to know something weird about me?
Me: Sure. 
Jack: You know at the end of the movie Breakfast Club when the guy is walking away and puts his hand up?
Me: Yes. Judd Nelson?
Jack: Yeah. Well the weird thing is sometimes when someone say hi or bye to me, I do that move and wave without turning around. 
Me: I don't think that is weird. 
Jack: You don't? Do you do that?
Me: I've been known to do it. 

Jack on Eye Contact

Age 11:

Jack was running late this morning getting ready so I called out to him and asked when he was going to get moving. 
He jumped off the couch and headed upstairs. As he walked by me, he asked, "Why are you looking at me like that? Your eyes are so resentful."
