Ice Cream Man

Jackson has quite the obsession to the ice cream man right now. Seriously, this kid can't hear me yelling at him to stop saying cuss words or stop picking his nose, but he can hear the song of the ice cream man 5 miles away! I swear! Each and every time we hear that melody, Jackson gets this little round circle of a mouth, huge eyes, his head popped up like a gopher, then yells "We need MOOONNNNEEEEYY!! He's COOOMMMIIINNG!" And every time, like a sucker, I find $1.25 and RUN outside to wait. I'm even the mom that when the bastard sees us and still turned down the other road, I grab Jackson and say "run fast!" and we chase after him--yes, I'm sure I'm talked about by the Gladys Cravets of the block....

So the other day, we were at MeMaw's when we heard the chimes. The problem is that he NEVER comes to her side of the neighborhood. So Jackson get's the little circle mouth and yells "I heared him! I'm so HAPPY!" This gets Pawpaw in the gut, I'm sure, because Jackson and Pawpaw and Memaw load up in the truck, windows down, to chase the ice cream man....suckers.
Before they left, Jackson informs us: "I think hims on that aisle over there! I hear him!"

When they get back, Mom is doubled over with near tears in her eyes. You won't believe this:

Pawpaw hits the breaks to stop at a stop sign. Jackson says, "BREAK CHECK!"
Pawpaw slows down for another car pulling in their driveway. Jackson says, "What are you waiting on? Chrissimas? GO!" (a phrase that my father uses OFTEN!)

They find the ice cream man and Jackson says to him, "I've been wooking for you!"
They get back in the truck with ice cream in hand and Jackson says, "I'm so HAPPY!"

So about 30 minutes later, we hear that ice cream man on Mom and Dad's block. Jackson informs us that, "Dadney didn't get any? You got any more money?!"

Yes, I had $2.00, so I hand it to Jackson. He proceeds to flale his arms and yell, "HEY! Come down HERE! I got some money! I got $2.00! Park right here! I need some for Dadney!"

I have never laughed so hard in my life!!

The next day, we are at GG Jane's for a quick dinner and she tells him to put his knife down. She says "Baby, I never get on to you, but that made me nervous." Jackson replies, "Yes you are. You on me like a dog on a bone." (a phrase that GG uses often!)

This kid says the FUNNIEST things...more later!

It's really bad when you are at work and trying not to laugh out loud. I can totally picture him saying all of that and the look on his face would be priceless. And the kid doesn't even know he's funny!!! Love Aunt Stastey
