My beautiful beautiful beautiful beautifulllllll boy....

"Mom, whatcha doin" he says when I answer the phone.

"Nuthin, whatdda ya need? I reply..

"I need a haircut, we have a Christmas party Friday night and my hair looks like hell" he says.

"Come on over, I can do it right now" I tell him.

When I hang up the phone I do a little dance. Daddio looks at me kind of weird like.

"Oh man" I say, "my kid needs a hair cut" I twirl around the kitchen as I talk.

I'm giddy waiting for him to come.

I get my haircutting things ready and when he gets there I take my good ol time doing the job.

There aren't many times you can get away with mauling your adult son...while giving a hair cut is one of those times.

I touch his cheeks, multiple times.

I lift his chin and force him to peer into my eyes (I tell him he needs to look me straight in the eye so I can make sure his sideburns are even... teee-heee).

"Hold still, and let me get all this hair off of you" I say as I clean his neck with my fingers.

"MOM, stop it....I can feel you sniffin my neck, cut it out"  he yells and swats at me.

"I wasn't sniffin your neck" I lie.

(I needed a fix real's been a long time.)

The kid with the good smellin neck and the woman who worships the ground he walks on.


  1. Great and very sweet post!
    I'm trying to enjoy every moment of my kids' time here with me because before I know it - they'll be gone raising their own families.
    Love to you

  2. Yeah Kelly before you know it they are all grown up and ready to mosey on out the door. I'm hoping all the hard work I put into raising them will pay off in the long run and they will want to visit and spend time with Daddio and I once they don't live here anymore. Your blog posts tell that you're a hard working mama too...thanks for visiting and the sweet comment.

  3. I saw you post on cjane's discussion board. Awwww... I don't know if I can read your blog. I don't want to think about when my kids will be grown and no longer want cuddles and neck sniffing:)

  4. Oops, I wasn't signed in. My blog is if you want to stop by.

  5. Hi Shalyce (pretty name!) Thanks for the visit. I will stop by. :-)


Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
