He Really Needs His Own Blog

Jacob brought home a backpack full of papers and junk from his desk today. I told him to sort out what he wanted to keep and pitch the rest. Here's what he kept and shared with me:

By "Jake S. Hooten"

It Really Bugs Me When....

"Do you want to get on my good side? Don't do the following things... It bugs me when bugs get in the house! -- It bugs me when my sister takes my D.S! (Seriously, just ask!) -- It bugs me when I have to run errands (Could my mom's list be any longer?) -- It bugs me when I have to return my favorite book to the library! -- It bugs me when I have to go home after I was at a friends house. (I wish I could stay 2 hours longer!)"

Well, he's wordy like me! It took two bugs to list his "bugs"!

I love that he is "Jake S. Hooten" at school. (Mrs. Klein asked him on the first day of school if he went by Jacob or Jake. He said, "Jake"! Nevermind the fact that we have never called him that! It's his alter-ego at school. When asked why he went with "Jake", he said "because it has a silent 'e'! Makes sense!)

I think he even spelled everything correctly. He's worked very hard at reading and spelling this year. He's made great progress.

Apparently, I need to run my lists by him before we run our errands!!

Ross noted that he writes just like he's blogging.

Yes. We had some ants in the pantry last weekend. Ant traps work wonders! I hate bugs too!

I'm so glad he was able to get that off his 8-year-old chest! He really is a happy-go-lucky kid. We love him to pieces!


  1. LOL! That is hilarious! I can totally see him saying all that....and you are right...he has his mama's wonderful sense of humor and writing style :) Gotta love that Jake S. Hooten! The neighbors across the way sure do, especially with his toothless smile right now (that pic above must not be current :)) Love ya, friend!

  2. I can't stop laughing. I think my favorite part (other than call out to you about errands) is the "seriously, just ask!" Gotta love him!
