Swept Away


My son will be a charmer, I promise.

And I don't know how I'll deal with his 2nd girlfriend and the one after her and the one after her because after 27 years, I still haven't mastered the whole sharing thing.

Oh yeah, that's right, I said 2nd girlfriend. He's 3 and already has a girlfriend.

Her name is Kendyl.

And she's an older woman. She just turned 5 and he's a little less than a month shy of turning 4.

But she's a totally sweet girl and she kinda Mamas him a bit and watches out for him and she doesn't let him give her all of my sugars. He keeps a few hidden behind his ears for me.

(That's how he gets out of it when Mama starts kissing all over him, he tells me he's out of kisses. Or he has to stop for a second and pull a few more out of his pocket or behind his ear and put them on his lips to refill his kisses.)

My grandmother is down from Oklahoma for the week and is keeping the boys (my son and my nephew) while our daycare is closed for vacation.

Her heart melted last night when Ty went upstairs before we left and took her face in his hands and said "You know I love you, don't you?"

How sweet is that?!

And this morning, as we were walking out the door to get in the car I smiled down at him and said "I love you".

"I love you, too, Beautiful!"

I don't need a man to sweep me off my feet, my son does it almost every day!
