A Southern Fried Mess

Insanity is a southern necessity…

Dear Mom and Dad…


This note just made my day.  I found it on my pillow the other night—it’s from my youngest son.  I guess this means we’re doing something right.

  1. It would appear so. You’re fortunate.

    (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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. How totally cute is that??!! I love that he said y’all. I think it’s one of the only southern words that I actually still use.

    I’m afraid that I say the word all the time…to the point that it starts to get on folks’ nerves.
