Jared got his first hickey today. He has this toy that you turn inside out and it jumps really high. When I got home from shopping today, I noticed he had this perfectly circular purple spot on his forehead. I asked him, "Did you stick that green thing to your head?" He said that he did and ran in to look at it in the mirror. I was laughing about it because I remember kids coming to school with hickeys on their faces from doing the same thing.

When he went to bed he asked me if it would be gone by morning. I told him that I didn't think so, but maybe. I asked him if I could take a picture of it, but he was adamant that I didn't. I started laughing about it again and he said, "Mommy. It is making me really mad that you won't stop laughing about it." I still can see the humor in it and hopefully he will be able to, too one of these days.

I love that! When Martin left for his mission Kent had one from a cup he had stuck to his chin. It covered from the bottom of his nose down to the bottom of his chin. And he had to give a talk for Martin's farewell. It was hilarious! I'm still laughing. Thanks for that. I needed that funny memory today.

That is pretty funny! He'll laugh when the mark goes away, maybe.

We ended up telling him that he should be glad that he can make everyone happy. He let me take a picture of it last night and he wasn't as embarrassed about it as he was when it first happened.

He did tell me that everyone he talked to asked him what happened to his head.
