Summer Jackie

Just been having so much fun with the kids home this summer...
Jackie's newest thing is anytime she does something and someone copies her - she tells them they can't do that - 'cause she's "copyrighted" it...
as in Jackie is singing a song and Marin starts singing along
"Marin - you can't sing that with me - I copyrighted it"

money maker...

Jackie and Daddy playing store.
Jackie" Daddy, do you want to play?"
Daddy "Yes!"
Jackie "Well - you need cold, hard my hand. Change and dollars too"
Daddy (handing over the cash) "O.K. - what do I get?"
Jackie (taking money and shoving it into the play register) "You'll see"....

Neighborhood Riot...

So Jackie is out riding her bike....a neighbor out of a walk stops to chat with her. Jackie is being her normal, precocious self. Neighbor asks what is written on Jackie's shirt ("Future Movie Star"). Jackie stares her up and down....then declares "I don't want to discuss it"....riding away on her bike. Neighbor graciously turns to me and tells me that she likes the way Jackie knows about boundaries....boundaries???? LMBFBO.

Too much material to write....but this one had to get in. Today at school, the librarian asked J her name. "Jackie" was the response. Librarian asks her last name. "Jack Attack". Hmmmm....

one more chance

The scene: Target

The Players: Jackie (having a hissey fit because Mom won't buy her a prize)
Mom (walking ahead pretending she's a childless writer that lives in a flat in Paris)

Jackie "Mom, o.k. I'll give you one more chance. You buy me a toy, and I'll give you a hug and a kiss"

Mom: (after she finishes laughing hard enough to require Depends) "I don't negotiate with terrorists"

Then they had pita and hummus at the cafeteria.

The End.

Clay Play

Jackie is working with clay today...found a bunch of toothpicks and proceeds to create a porcupine....saying "Trust me - this is going to really hurt" as she's sticking them in. LMBFBO.
