Our Magic 8 Ball

Jack has a new role in our household: he’s our Magic 8 Ball.  It works something like this:  We ask a question (like, for example, “would you like to eat your sister’s socks for lunch?”), and he responds by shaking his cute little blond head, nodding his cute little blond head, or scrunching up his nose and giggling like you just asked a really silly question and he’s laughing but of course won’t even grace that question with an answer.  It’s really quite entertaining.  Mealtimes and car rides go something like this:

Jack, do you love your mommy/daddy/big sister?  (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)

Jack, do you love Wildcats more than Jayhawks?  (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)

Jack, do you want to eat chocolate covered frog legs for dinner?  (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)

Jack, do you think daddy’s hair looks funny?  (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)

Jack, do you think that you should keep Daddy up all night?  (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)

Jack, do you think we should skip bathtime and let you run around the neighborhood naked instead?  (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)

Jack, do you wish you had big ears like Molly?  (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)

Jack, do you know that mommy sneaks chocolate when you’re not looking?  (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)

Jack, do you want to go to kindergarten today instead of your sister? (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)

Jack, do you think Obama should become President? (cue head shake, head nod, or giggle)
OK, I actually haven’t asked him that question.  😉

You get the idea.  So, if you have any deep questions you’d like answered with a shake, nod, or a giggle, stop by sometime and ask our cute little Magic 8 Ball.

    He is SUCH a doll! When can our families play again? Sydney LOVES Amelie and only wants to join Girl Scouts if Am is doing it! We’ll have to talk!
