(A note: You might want to address that “Y’all” habit before it gets ingrained!)
Ram, honey, It’s too late for the ‘y’all’ thing. You see, I have a real bad habit of saying it myself (along with the word ‘honey’ as you can tell) and I’m afraid that he has already picked it up much to everyone’s dismay. He even made a special effort to ask me how to spell it and to where the apostrophe goes in the word. I’m southern. I’ve corrupted him. End of story. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! I’ll have to swing on over and visit the ‘store’ soon—-from what I’ve read so far, you’ll have me splitting my side open from laughing.

awww that is soooo sweet 🙂
I actually cried when I read it. He’s my quiet child and you just never know what he’s thinking. I thank God everyday that I’m blessed with such wonderful, thoughtful children.
That is really sweet. My four year old is a letter/card writer. My oldest is more of a fist bumper.
I love it! ‘A first bumper’ type. Now that would be my oldest daughter. My middle daughter likes to color pictures for everyone and my youngest daughter likes to give stickers out. My oldest son at the stage of ‘ you stand over there and pretend you don’t know me’ and we’ll get along just fine.
What else can be better?? You are a complete success when your children think you are…Lord bless that baby and you…
Just dwell in that for a while……
Love you, Barb
I cried and was so touched by his note. I held it to my chest and thanked God right then and there for the wonderful sweetness he placed in my youngest boy. Then I went and gave my son a really big hug. ‘Course he was all like, “Yuck! mom koodies.” But I could see the smile he was trying to hide.

You know, “y’all” is in my phone’s dictionary, so it must be a real word! Is it really?! That’s cool. I wish it had been a word back when I was in High School. I like to drove my English teacher crazy…. nice new pic, Adam… got the beard and stache styling.
—I’m a middle aged Southern woman… deep south ‘Southern’. If I say or use the word ‘honey’ in a sentence (or in this case a review/comment ), It doesn’t mean I’m hitting on you. I’ve had many a person take this the wrong way. This word is simply just embedded in my vocabulary. Maybe hypnosis would help…
—I’m married…..happily married. I’ve been with my first and only husband now for almost 19years. Yes, I’m one of those people. And If one of us should ever become single, it’s because one of us took a shotgun to the other.
— We have five wonderful kids ( between the ages of 13 & 4) that I absolutely love and adore. Okay; so I may have mentioned once, maybe twice, that I wanted to auction them off on EBay. But they were driving me crazy those few days. You try living in a house with that many kids…
—I love photography. Who knows, one day I might make the move up to amateur photographer. It’s such a big step….
— I absolutely love to cook. What Southerner doesn’t? ‘Course if you were to ask my family, they would say that not everything I cook is fit for human consumption. It might give you consumption though….
— Lastly, I’m a stay at home mom…who the neighbors think is nutty as a fruit cake. So I might carry on converstations with my chickens…and yell at the birds stealing my pecans while dressed in my PJ’s. But I’ll have you know, I’ve only had the fire department over once since we’ve been in our new home. I was just tired of doing the laundry and thought it would be easier to just set fire to it all in the front yard and start over. I mean come on, who hasn’t done that?
