Swappy Jacks

Nope. It’s not a new breakfast cereal or a card game, though that’d be a close guess!

Christian was served “Sloppy Joes” for lunch at preschool on Monday. No big deal (except that he’s my picky eater and I wasn’t sure he’d try it—which is why I’m leaving him at preschool for lunch—trying the peer-pressure route to trying new foods!) but you know kids say the cutest things!

As you may be able to guess, he was stuck playing many card games with his sister during the summer and an all-time favorite for both of them is “Slap Jack!” So when he was served a funny looking sandwich and told it was a Sloppy Joe, he could not quite remember that. (Oh—and we’re still working on words with the “L” sound in them. So “swap” is actually “slap” in Christian-speak.) So I’ve been cracking up this week as he tells people that “Swappy Jacks are GOOOOOOD!”
