Zack says...

**The other day Zack had a tummy ache. We were late for school so I just brushed him off and told him to go get something from his room. When he didn't return I went upstairs and found him on the floor with this:


He was rolling it back and forth with his arms in the push-up position. When I asked him what he was doing he said: "Daddy says this helps with your stomach." His tummy was fine after that.

**A few day's ago Zack was mad about something I wouldn't let him do (I can't remember what). He walked out of the room and yelled: "I want a better mom! You are always so RUDE!" I have a feeling that is not the last time I will hear that!

**One day I had Zack's friends mom pick him up from school for a play date. She always goes to Starbucks and this day she had picked up a treat for the boys. When they got in the car she asked Zack if he would like a cocoa. He said: "No, we don't drink that." She tried not to laugh and then asked him if he would like some hot chocolate instead, to which he replied: "Yes!"

**Steve has taken Zack skiing a few times and it can be somewhat frustrating for them both at times. Zack just wants to zoom down the hill. Steve wants him to learn the basics first, of course. One such time Steve was lecturing Zack about something, maybe he was a little mad or frustrated. A little while later Zack chuckled and said: "Dad, you know when you were talking to me? Your teeth were green and green smoke was coming out of your mouth!" I guess those are the kinds of things going through his mind when we are lecturing him and he gets that glazed look in his eyes. Hilarious!

**Zack recently discovered a cool thing you can do with those malted milk Easter egg candies:


Just so you know, it can stain the skin!

I love the tummy ache. That's why I avoid exercise at all costs. Who wants an achy tummy? Really.

Those eggs used to be one of my favorite things about Easter! I love the stomach thing. That is hillarious. And no, you did not give me any wrong advice. Are you kidding me? That was seriously so nice of you to let me drop by while you were making dinner. He just got super worse that night. He's doing lots better. I really do appreciate you letting me just drop by. And I'm super bummed I had to miss lunch. That's a story all in itself. McDonalds sometime this week? Maybe later in the week sometime...

Zack is awesome! You should make a book of all the silly things Zack says and then one day you can give it as a wedding gift to his wife to be. I've had Dresden and Logan both say that I am a bad mom...in fact, just the other day the boys were fighting and I told them if they hurt each other don't come and tell me because I don't want to hear about it. Dresden said, "Mom, you are being an unresponsible Mom." So, there you go, I'm not only a bad mom but I'm not very responsible either. :)

Ahhh, it's sooo nice to see that Steve is being a good father and setting an example for his son.
