Aunt Michelle took Jacob out for some special time, and one of the things they did was rent a movie at Blockbuster. Jacob picked it out. Underdog is a cute movie, and the boy character in it lost his mom and is being raised alone by his dad.
Jacob stole one of the lines from that boy and used it on me during dinner tonight:
"I just want to be a regular boy with a mom AND a dad."
My sister Michelle is moving in with us in a couple of weeks, and between her and the kittens we're going to be getting, hopefully Jacob will be a bit more distracted and not feel such a void in his life. Maybe I will, too...
