Happy Mother's Day a bit Early

I remember so fondly that wonderful stage of life when my little boys brought me dandelions in their precious, sweaty little hands, and tenderly stroked my hair when they sat on my lap. They would ask me to sing them another lullaby and thank me when I made them cookies. If you are still in the midst of those days, treasure those moments with all your heart and soul. Because this is much closer to what my world is like now. This is so realistic that it made me cry with laughter and yes, it made me appreciate my gigantic, darling, wrestling, testosterone-powered sons all the more. If you or your husbands have brothers, hopefully this will make you smile, too. Oh, and if you look carefully at church, one or more of my sons might just be wearing a colored t-shirt with words on it (turned inside out if I caught them before we walked out the door--sometimes this part happens while we are driving to church) under their white shirt and tie...

  2. Thanks for that! I was laughing so hard. I know my children would NEVER behave like that. I'm off to my happy bubble now.

  4. Add my tears to Corinne's!! I just gave my mom a digital picture frame loaded with pictures from ALL of my siblings, their spouse's, and all the grandkids. She'll open it Sunday at one of my sister's, and, hopefully, FREAK OUT! Had any of those siblings lived nearby there might have been fist fights trying to get those photos!! Brothers and sisters.

  5. Too funny! But what really got me was your intro of how they USED to be. How mine is now. I will do more treasuring. :)

  8. I LOVE THOSE GUYS!! (It doesn't hurt that they were in an 'internet celebrity' version of a BNL video...) They crack me up here, and also terrify me about what my future holds!!!
