Janice’s 4 year old son Jackson constantly cracks me up with the things he says.
The other day our neighbor Julie gave us some homemade muffins. As usual Julia wouldn’t eat hers, and so Jackson got to eat both. A couple hours later, as we were playing outside, Jackson announced,
“I want to go over to Julie’s house and thank her for those nice muffins.”
Surprised and smiling to myself at his thoughtfulness, I said, “What a great idea Jackson. But, she’s not home, she’s at work.”
He replied, “My mommy works at home, so I’m lucky. Julia and I are lucky because our mommies work at home. But my mommy has gone to work today. She doesn’t usually go to work, but she’s gone today.”
I asked, “Oh, really? Where is she working today?”
“Well, she hasn’t really gone to work… she’s gone to bed.”
I laughed with relief that he had said that to me and not someone else or Janice might have been rather embarrassed. In her defense, she did have a bad cold that day and so going to bed was an appropriate thing to do.
