according to Jack

Jackson has been going through a phase lately, where he pretends he’s a dog all the time. And, you know, I’m mostly okay with that. I was okay with building a “dog house” in the living room. I was okay with throwing a ball repeatedly so he could “fetch” it in his mouth. I was NOT okay with letting him drink from a bowl at dinner.

Some of his ideas are a little absurd. But in the interest of fostering his creativity, I try to roll with it... most of the time. I have no clue how a kid who doesn’t even own one knows so much about dogs.

Just so you know, the following was NOT my idea.

Jack: “Mommy, I really need a cone around my neck so I can’t scratch behind my ears.”

Me: “Are you serious?”

Jack: “Yes. I have an itchy spot.”

Me: “If I put a cone around your neck do I get to take pictures?”

Jack: “Well… sure!”

Me: “I’ll see what I can do.”

And just because you can’t take pictures of one and not the other…

That is referred to as an "Elizabethan collar" and you made a nice one! Hope Jackson gets over his "itch" and can be released from his collar soon!
Love you girl!

I guess it could be worse. Jackie MeMaw said you used to pretend to be a dog also so I guess it gets it honestly. Do you remember that or is it something you have chosen to forget?
