A Glimpse of the Future?

Jackson is at it again. The boy, the tent, and his many, many, balls. Hours of entertainment, I tell you. Now he has decided that he likes to fill the tent with all the balls, some books, and maybe a golf club or two. Then he has to sit in the "tunnel tent" and read his books. Alrighty then. Don't you ever wonder what goes on in their little minds? Last week he found one of Joe's belts (has a clip on it) and wanted his toy camera attached. Then he wanted the belt put on. He ran around like a little spelunker. All of a sudden I heard, "Look Mommy, I have a cat tail!" I turned around and he was holding the end of the belt. Thinking he had a tail just like "Mi-mo" and Tanga. He wore his special tail belt for the rest of the night.

Peekaboo!

Reading in the tent!

Where is your cat tail?

"Right here!"

Jump, Jump, Jump!

Many of you know how bad my eyes are used to be! Not anymore!! Hooray I have 20/20 vision now. But before I had Lasik, my vision was 20/600. Bad, VERY bad. I was "gifted" with my bad vision from my Dad, whose eyes used to be bad, VERY bad also. So, as much as I hope that Jackson gets his Daddy's good vision, I feel as though the odds are stacked against him. Maybe Lasik surgery will be even more afforadable when the time comes. But until then....here is what he may look like! Jackson found a pair of Joe's glasses the other night. (the correction is so small it is barely noticable). He wouldn't take them off. Makes me wonder if they actually helped him see better! Anyway, Jackson looked pretty funny and cute in them. I guess that is a good thing...

Don't I look very scholarly?

Let's go to the library!

Or maybe just watch some Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!

Now you know how I live every day of my life. Not a day goes by that we don't listen to that song once, twice, and many more times! If it hadn't been.....
I can send you a copy of the CD if you like!!!
