I just realized I never did catch up from all the Jake funnies I collected a few weeks ago. Here are a few about body image.
- The other day Jake asks me "Do you think I'll be 5'7" by next year?" I said "No, because right now you're like 4'7". And anyway, I wasn't 5'7" until 7th grade." (He's in 2nd.)
His response was "Yeah, but you don't have my build."
- When Jake looked over my shoulder at the computer and saw himself in my Facebook profile picture (he was in his swimming trunks and pretending to flex his arms), he said "Wow, look! My muscles are big!" That child does NOT suffer from a lack of self-esteem.
- Jake is fascinated by my friend Jimmy. (He's 6'5".) One day while driving, Jake randomly told me "I'm almost as big as Jimmy - just a few more feet to go!"
- And here's one related to Jimmy's tallness: You know those cell phone towers you drive past everywhere? Well Jake was staring at a cell tower one day and said "That's tall. That's like . . . 10 Jimmys high." I pretty much love that Jake uses my friend as a unit of measurement.
