Oh you gotta love the "Jaxon-isms". I do anyway. The things that come out of a 3-year-old's mouth are hysterical! 

Today we went to JoAnn Fabrics and as we are walking into the store, hand in hand, I say, "Jaxon I love our dates. This is going to be a good one, I can tell." 
"Yeah, Mom, but the zoo date was WAY better."

After our trip to JoAnn, we were headed to a playdate and I say, "Thanks for being so good at JoAnn's. I really enjoyed our date." 
"Your welcome, Mama. I couldn't have done it without you!"


Brian, Jaxon & I went out to lunch the other day (seriously, how great is it to be on break???) and of course Jaxon is non-stop questions. I mean it's a little excessive. So I say, "Jax, why do you ask so many questions."
He sighs and says, "UGH! I'm sooo tired of you asking me that! I just do okaaaay."
Ok. Got it.


In the car after lunch, out of the blue Jaxon asks us, "What's blood pressure?"
HUH? Really? I know he knows this phrase because the nurse checks my blood pressure each week when she gives me my shot and I tell him what she's doing. But for him to ask me what it is? I'VE never even asked what blood pressure is, much less understand it. Guess my preschooler is much smarter than his college educated Mama.
I threw that one to his dad, who is much smarter in the medical department than I.


The other day we were at home and Jaxon tells his dad, "Daddy, you say a lot of bad words."
Brian sighs, "You don't even know the half of it."


Last weekend we took Jaxon to see the Lion King in the theaters. For hours after the movie Jaxon asked us questions about it. "What was the baby's name? Who was his dad? Why was Scar mean? What happened to Mufasa? Why was the savanna on fire? What was Simba's baby's name?"
Honestly, the questions are too much.
I was explaining that Simba & Nahla fell in love, got married and had a baby. Whose name I did not know. 
"Will I get married, Mama?" 
"Yup. One day you'll fall in love and marry someone."
"I'm going to marry you, Mama."
"No, you can't marry me. I'm your Mom."

 "But I LOVE you!"

Heart melting.
