Jake: Mommy at 6:05 I’m going to smile at you, okay?
Jake: I said at 6:05 I’m going to smile at you. That is in one minute.
Me: Alright buddy, I can’t wait!
As the clock turns to 6:05 Jake looks at me and says “Mommy” and then flashes his smile at me. It’s over pretty quick but I am smiling too. Since that day, if he is watching the clock, he smiles at me. The other day I asked him why he likes to smile at me at 6:05 and he said “because I like to smile at you!” This is totally fine with me!
Jake is obsessed with the time 6:05 it started back in August. He sets timers for 6:05 and looks at the clock each day waiting for this time. I think his love for this particular time came from a PBS show called Odd Squad where they had to feed the dinosaurs at 6:05 or things got a little odd. This is my best guess. Cute show that teaches math concepts.
Last night, Thursday, Jake starts making a beeping noise and banging his car. I asked him to stop and his beeps got louder and he points to the clock where it says 6:05 and he looks at me flashes me this awesome smile and goes back to playing. My heart is full at that moment. I was tired and really wanted to go to bed and his quick little smile rejuvenated me. Funny how a simple smile from him changed my attitude!
I took this picture on Jake’s first day of school this year with his teacher. He had to hold the clock and it had to be set at 6:05; I just love both of their smiles 🙂
