Sam has a new way of requesting my attention.

He does it at swimming. He does it at skiing. He does it when he wants to show me one of his new (self-taught) karate moves.

sam-fockerHe yells “Mom!”  And once we make eye contact, he does the Jack Byrnes, from Meet The Parents.

But instead of saying “I’m watching you,” he’s saying “Time to watch ME.”

He’s nailed the intense stare, the furrowed brow and the finger pointing (which he seems to be especially proud of).  He looks like a cross between an angry Byrnes and a lovable Focker.

When he starts referencing the Circle of Trust, we’re in trouble.
