This has been kind of a long week. Jackson’s babysitter, who watches him three mornings a week, is on vacation, so I’ve been trying to squeeze in work in the early, early hours before Drew goes to work and in the spare minutes here and there while Jackson is occupied with play-doh or books or writing his ABCs over and over. But on top of that, I got hit with allergies this week and haven’t been sleeping well, and then yesterday I got some kind of bug or something and threw up everything I ate all day and just generally felt lousy all afternoon. I’m better today, but tired. And it’s raining. So, yeah, long week.
But this morning I was showing Jackson the site, which he’s seen before but doesn’t quite understand what it all means, and I was explaining that I’m Dear Wendy and people write letters to me asking questions and then I answer their questions and publish my answers on the site. He was fascinated by all of this and declared that he wanted to be Dear Jackson. He wouldn’t drop it either. He kept asking where his letters were. So, on the forums, I invited people to write questions to him, and he was so excited when a few were posted. Here he is reading and answering a couple (by the way, the “Read in English” statement is in reference to Jackson saying EVERYTHING these days in “Spanish,” which isn’t so much Spanish as it is gibberish that he makes up and calls Spanish). Anyway, here he is (I asked if it was ok if I posted the videos here and he said yes, by the way):
