The back of Jack's Head

My daughter and son in law are going to Boston for a Christmas Party. Since they plan to have a couple drinks they wanted to stay the night. With their busy schedules today they needed to drop Jack at 7 a.m. this morning. Later I will pick up Josh and keep the two of them overnight. I have the cookie dough all made and waiting in the fridge. Later we will make snickerdoodles for the church and for home. At the moment Jack has taken the cushions off my sofa and is using it as a trampoline. As long as he is occupying himself for a few minutes while I catch up here I am okay, It is a tough couch and he won't hurt anything. Later I have promised him we will go out to lunch and then to the playground. I will have a pretty busy afternoon so I figured I had better get my post in this morning and I will catch up later with everyone.

They have so much energy and this is a relatively safe way to let it out.

At least you have someone to look after you and make sure that you behave.

How wonderful doting grandma! @bellestarr I'm sure the kids loved the love and attention you showered on them. Usually, they don't get enough of it from their parents. Consider yourself Blessed!

I can see where you would have used the 'bad' word if you hadn't been pulled up. :)

I hope you have a fun day with your grandson. My three year old grandson name is Jack after my dad.

Jack is named after my dad too. I always wanted to name one of my kids John but I ended up using it as a middle name with my son Jason.
