I was on my way out to Pilates the other night and I make JJ lock the screen door behind me and I said thank you to him. He asked me why I was thanking him, and I said because you’re you. As I got into the car to drive off I realised I meant it.
He exasperates me to my absolute limits at time, but that’s one of the ‘joys’ of parenting is it not?
We have some great conversations though. I love that he helps me see things through a different light.
He asked me the other day what I see when I think of different numbers. I just see the number I realised. When he thinks of the number six he sees darkness in the middle and glowing red eyes on the outside. And that’s not a one-off, it’s just what he sees. And he sees different things for different numbers. WOW! Do other people see something else when they think of numbers?
Below are a series of images I took last weekend when he was on the trampoline. I bought this trampoline when he was about two and he’s just turned 11. I replaced the mat a few months ago and I’m really glad I did because he still uses it.
It’s not easy to put a new mat on a trampoline let me tell you. It took two adults a while and a lot of strength and grunting to get that mat on.
This photo one was his favourite.
The one below is one of my favourites.
These photos of JJ are so wonderful….and show us just what a character and charmer he is. What a great kid…. ~Joy xo
He’s a character all right.

Lovely photos and he’s so adorable.
and really funny shots.
Thanks Nina. Those photos ‘describe’ him to a tee. I often tell him he should be an actor.
