Jack and the Monster Combine
Life is flying along, and all the kids are growing. It's great to see them gradually, although reluctantly on their parts, becoming more responsible. They are reaching new privileges. But it's bittersweet to see them sprouting up and outgrowing their clothes. I just sold a bunch of Helen's old outfits on a yard sale, and the memories! I'm a sentimental sap for sure.
I even had to part with some of Henry's tiny baby things! The little guy is out of the newborn stage, and at his 2-month well-baby check up today weighed 11 pounds, 11 ounces. He's still not totally excited about the Bumbo seat. It's a good thing he's oblivious to the fact that it's purple, or he would really hate it. It's also a good thing his daddy is color blind.
Jason double-checked the toy the next time he was in the store for farm business, and saw the mistake which was grossly in Jack's favor. At the next opportunity, he took Jack and his money into Hendrix, and returned with one little pleased customer.
Jack is still convinced that everyone on the face of the earth is extremely interested in his monster combine. He will boldly inform anyone who will listen of his fine purchase. He also has a realistic fear that it might get broken by rough play, and so, without much tact, will warn some people that he doesn't want them to have it because he doesn't want the auger to break.
