My two favorite funny conversations with Jacob this past weekend.
At the beginning of his bath:
Jacob: (regarding the water somewhat suspiciously) Our water comes from the duck pond and has duck poop in it. I think this water has duck poop in it too.
Me: (stifling a giggle) Our water comes from a well, which means we had to dig a very deep hole to get water up from underground. Since it was underground no ducks could poop in it.
Jacob: (smiling after sighing in relief) Oh! That's really good!
Before taking a quick dip in one of my friend's pools before going back to my house to meet his Mama.
Me: We won't be able to be in the water for a long time. Before I let you go in I want you to make a deal* with me not to fuss when it is time to get out.
Jacob: Ok, it's a deal....but....maybe I might forget and complain.
*Final terms included a 5 minute and 2 minute warning from me. I threw in one last cannonball just because he had been such a good kid.
