Be My Baby
So The Boy asked me to tye his shoes. He likes my triple knots. (what can I say? I am one "knotty girl"....man, I.crack.my.self.up.)
I told him he was going to have to perfect his own triple knot.
He thought about it and said, "Maybe when I am 8."
You know I am a sucker. And, apparently so does he. I agree to 6 more months of triple knots.
Trying to take advantage of my generous nature (shocking), he replied, "How 'bout you do it until I am ten."
I quickly retorted, "Ten! Don't even talk about being ten. I need you to stay my baby as long as possible. "
He says, "Mom, I will always be your baby."
I gleefully exclaim, "Really?!" (Oh, this boy. He is SO sweet.)
He states, "Mom, you are like 26 years older than me. I will always be a baby compared to you."
Geez, kid, thanks. Thanks a lot.
Out of the mouth of babes. Seriously.
Ah, a fellow L.A. girl. Yes, the celebrity sightings are abundant, especially on Robertson. I've definitely had some interesting encounters. But I still miss the midwest, and especially the smell of smoke in Autumn. I mean, I suppose L.A. smells like smoke in Autumn too, but for a totally different reason. Bleck.
What a sweetheart!
However, they are producing their own babes, so I get to live those years all over again :-)
You *are* so "knotty"! But that is why I love ya!
Hes a keeper, that one, how sweet
Don't want to get into any trouble with Lula.
I still remember the night I was trying to get my oldest daughter (age 3)to sleep in her own bed. I made a joke about what would happen when she gets married. She happily told me she was planning on tucking her husband in bed at their house and then she would get in her car and come to my house and go to sleep in my bed. It was really funny and sweet.
when you're first married and you have your first kid, you're a cute young couple on the horizen of life. Once you have your second, however, and drive a cheesewagon (with a spoiler, of course) you are just OLD.
Apparently, I'm old. My friend, who is 21 says to me, "what did prom dresses look like when you were in school?"
I'm giving away some money, honey...come check it out! Nothing but good can come from this!
She forgets that she is my baby and needs a good reminder. She's all fashion and Hannah Montana and short shorts and lip gloss....oy vey!
I have a secret for you. My son is ten and sometimes, sometimes, I still tie his shoes. And I always double knot them.
(I am a fan!)
