He's a magic man

I have been on a quest lately to have a one on one "date" with each of my kids and this Saturday morning I went out with Jake (the four year old for you new readers). He told me he saved up his money to buy me a bickit (biscuit) and big truck but we settled on Krispie Kreme and a little treat. It did melt my heart that he offered to spend his money on me though and I couldn't help but smile when he pulled out his baggy of pennies to show me he was ready to go!   I love getting to spend time with them alone because that is when the fighting stops and their true personalities really shine through. Plus I get to learn more about their likes, dislikes and the things they are really looking foward to.

Jake informed me that is tired of A B C D E F Gs and is ready to learn to read real books that have this many (holds up 10 fingers) words on each page and he wants to learn what numbers come after 17 because his piggy toe wants a number too.

I loved getting to hear him talk about how his favorite color will always be yellow but he struggles with picking a favorite between Caillou and Fireman Sam. He wants to be a "worker man" when he grows up and he hopes to learn how to do read, write and do laundry at school next year.

We were looking at how water in the sun will make a rainbow when were in the parking lot. I told him that he must be magic to make something that special happen in which he informed me that "magic mans"only make rabbits and I need to pay more attention at story time so I know these things. But while he wasn't pulling rabbits out of his hat  he will probably never know just how magical him and his brothers are to me. They took my plain ordinary life and magically turned it into something amazing by just being in it!

Thanks for one of the greatest "dates" I have ever had! I look foward to many more!
