Today was fun and wet! Mom, Leisa, Jackson and I went to 7 cemeteries to decorate graves and Jackson kept us entertained the whole time. We were driving from Rexburg to Menan on the winding roads around the buttes. The roads go back and forth and up and down and sometimes feel like a roller coaster. After one especially quick turn Jackson said "Whoa, I didn't see that coming". Where does his little 3 year old brain hear these things? And how does he remember EVERYTHING he hears?

OK here we go with Jackson again. He has been upset all afternoon. He keeps coming up to his teacher and telling her "They're calling me Cheeto!" She talked to the little girl who was calling him "names" and she was calling him "Kiddo". A few minutes later he was upset because he thought she called him "Burrito" so the teacher told the little girl "Let's just call him Jackson. He doesn't like being called kiddo." She said "But it's not a bad word" and the teacher agreed but told her Jackson doesn't like being called anything but "Jackson". There is even a little boy who can't say his name right. He calls him "Jaskon" and Jackson tells him over and over "My name is Jackson, not Jaskon!" One of the other girls in the class said "It's OK if you call me kiddo". Hopefully that will solve the problem.

Tonight we were at my brother's house celebrating birthdays. We were in the living room just sitting and visiting. My 3 year old nephew Jackson came in and started spinning around. When he stopped he was very wobbly and couldn't stand up straight. He said "Oh, I'm very busy". When I thought about it that must be what his brain feels like when he gets dizzy. Busy in the head. It makes sense. Well, to Jackson anyway.
