i hope the sky is listening

It's been raining for the past few days in Austin.  We're in a serious drought, so the rain is awesome for the scorched earth and thirsty plants.  And for the diminishing (but still beautiful and boat-able) lake.

It is not, however, so good for Jack and his buddies, who missed their regularly scheduled Tuesday Splash Day and haven't been able to rock the playground time as much as they would like.

This morning, on our way to school, Jack pointed an admonishing finger at the sky and said sternly, "You stop that raining.  Jack and his friends need to play."

He couldn't see my smile in the front seat.  I paused and said, "Well, how do you think the grass and the trees feel now?"

With his chin to chest, all pouty-like, he responded, "Better... But Momma, I told it to STOP.  So I can play."

Is it too early to wonder if he will be President?

Hope you feel empowered to give orders today.

Talk soon,
Heather

  1. Oh, I think your Jack and my D would get along fabulously, esp. after seeing your "Jack acts like he's 30" tag. Mine's the same. He orders his baby sister around constantly; it'll be BAD when she can finally respond to his demands! We're having Texas-like weather now, so I will send some your way. :)
