Working Man

Our son is a rough and tumble ball of hugs and wrestling.  If other children don't want to play with him or get a giant bear hug, he simply chases after them and hunts them down - like The Terminator.  He doesn't care whether or not the other children reject him, he just keeps going, if they shove him, he thinks it's funny and part of the game.

A few days ago at daycare he chased a group of children into the toy playhouse, holding up a piece of wooden play rail road track akin to a scene in a movie of where "the monster" chases down frightened villagers.  I commented that Jack could turn anything into a weapon with mad MacGyver skills and has great persistence which gave Chris the following idea,  "Sarabeth, why not you create some mock resumes for the babies."  Which is silly, but so am I, so here's Jack's:
