Jack the Russian

Jack told me today that he needs to teach me Russian so I can live with him over there. "You know, that IS where I'm going to live, Mom." Very, very serious. He's mentioned it before, but this time...he seemed intent on making me know he was sincere. "I'm going to be Russian. And I'm going to be a Russian astronaut."

So my lesson for the day was "apple." That should come in handy once he's transplanted our family to Moscow. I do like apples. ;)

Parenting really is about being in the passenger seat, watching where they go. If I tried to take the wheel, there's no way he'd be as interesting/fun/charming as he is to me, when he's making the decisions about where we go.
