I Confess...All Is Right In My World

September 9, 2011


I confess...I have a really fun and exciting (at least for me) give away coming up. I'm hoping to get the details posted by Monday. But since I have some VIP's visiting until Tuesday, it might be a little "late!"

I confess... I'm breathing a huge sigh of relief today. I'm also grinning like nobodies business.Want to know why? Because these two cuties...

arrived here today for five days of fun in the sun and also to visit one VERY happy Momma (that would be me!)

I confess...I'm secretly hoping for some snuggle time with that cute guy up there for myself.

I confess...I seriously doubt that I'll get that above mentioned snuggle time since he's now 22 and visiting his Mom (Me) with his girlfriend who I'm just meeting for the first time today.

I confess...knowing that the above cute guy has "outgrown" snuggle time with his Momma really REALLY sucks.

I confess...I like his girlfriend. She's adorable. And much more of a tiny tot that I thought lol. She's 4'11". My Son is 6'5". They're so dang cute together!

I confess...I can tell my Son is in love. That makes this Momma very, very happy.

I confess...hubby ended up going to bed around 11 and Rusty, Amanda and I ended up staying up until almost 4 am just talking about old times.

I confess...I loved every single minute of it.

I confess...My Son and I even talked about his Dad's suicide two years ago. He's never really talked to me (in depth) about it before, which always made me worry about how he's dealing with it. I'm happy to say that he's much more understanding of the reasons for his Dad's choosing to shoot himself that I expected. Much more so than I am. Knowing that makes me feel much better.

I confess...I loved telling Amanda all the cute (and scary) stories about when he was little. Like the time he super glued his eyes closed, and the time he wouldn't let me touch a butterfly because he thought I was going to "rub the butter off of it". Many laughs were had.

I confess...I've been doting over my Son like he's still 4 years old.

I confess...I've loved every.single.minute.of.it.

I confess...I made a huge bowl of banana pudding. Just for him.

I confess...You should have seen the smile on his face when I handed him his first bowl of it.

I confess...That smile is what I live for.

I confess...I couldn't be happier right now. Not even if you gave me a million $$$. Well, unless he said he was moving up here.

I confess...I'm sure you're all probably sick of hearing about my Son by now so I'll stop now. You're welcome lol.

Hope you all have a great day. I think we're headed to the OBX for some beach time and I think the kids want to go to Jockey's Ridge, throw a little shopping in there and it should make for a great day.

It has to be hard to for you to talk about his dad. My husband's mom killed herself and I'll never forget the conversations we've had. It must be very different for mom and son. Thanks for confessing; happy Friday!

It's always sad when they outgrow snuggle time. I have a few years yet til then but this does remind me to take advantage of the offered snuggles now.

I am not looking forward to the day my sons begin dating. They are 3 and 5 so I have some time! He is definitely a cutie! Over here from Mamarazzi!

We're headed to Emerald Isle this weekend!! Have fun in OBX! Take them to the Kitty Hawk Museum too. It's something to at least 'see' there.

Your kids are never too old to snuggle with their Mama! At least, that's what my mom tells me. My oldest is 6.

So glad you get to spend some time with your son and his girlfriend! Hope you get to keep that smile on your face for the whole time! :D

Oh cher, I'm so happy for you! They are such a cute couple. I don't think that I could handle living far away from my kids. Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Your son and his girlfriend are a beautiful couple. He is very handsome, Dee!!

You keep talking about him all you want...that's what us Momma's do!

Hope you got some snuggle time! :)
