Compliments

Last week I dropped the boys off at school and like any other morning before they get out of the car they each give me a huge hug, a kiss on the cheek and as they are gathering their books and getting out, they always leave me with a "I love you Mommy", always without fail.
They are so not embarrassed and are self proclaimed "Mama's Boys" and when asked they say "Yeah I'm a Mama's boy, you got something to say about it?"

LOL, I love those boys of mine. "Mama's Boys", in part made that way by their Dad who always told them "You only get one Mama, you better treat her like the Princess she is".
And they do. :0)

When I went back that afternoon to pick them up, a teacher, whom I didn't know at the time, was watching us that morning, came over to my car and said to me "Ma'am I just wanted to tell you that you have the two most sweetest, polite and pleasant boys I have ever met. You didn't know this but this morning I pulled them to the side when you drove off and complimented them on being such awesome sons telling them I bet you really made your Mom's whole day".
It's always nice to get a compliment and although I wasn't really surprised, cuz they are great kids, I was taken slightly when she told me what they told her.
They said, "Thank you but we love our Mom, we don't do that because we are supposed to, we do that every morning because we love her".

I think my heart grew times 1000 right then and there. :0)

Kody would get in a picture with me any day. Kolin on the other hand is always on the go so to catch him for a snap, it is darn near impossible.
Imagine my surprise when he actually "asked" to have one taken with me. Sigh.....

Since I was in front of the camera this time {which is rare, believe me}, I had Kaysha take this one...

In that photo the only thing in PS I did to my own eyes was to tone them down. Yes, you heard right, down. LOL...they are so darn blue outside that in photos I swear I could be some neon blue eyed alien weirdo from some florescent day glo planet far, far away. Hehe...

Anyway, apologies for not getting on all weekend. Saturday we were out of town all day and yesterday was one of those rainy, headache, migraine kinds of days so I did my best to kind of sleep through it.

Today though, the sun is shining and it is fixin' to be a balmy 83 degrees by lunch. It's a great day to live where I do, that's for sure.

Have a beautiful day everyone!!

Beautiful photo, Kim - makes me want to do a shot with each of my kids... I am actually planning on photographing them with our old beagle so that they each have a picture of him down the road. I'll have to add the kid/me pic to my list of things to do.

Your eyes are gorgeous!! They look like gems!!!

Okay...I must have done a dumb thing and think I closed out of my post before typing in the word verification. OOOPS!!!

Just wanted to say that I think that is an awesome pic of you and Kolin.

I also think that's a great story about the comment the teacher gave about Kody & Kolin! It sure does make a parent proud to get unexpected feedback!! Way to go, guys!!

Longtime reader, not much of a commenter (okay, probably never but you might remember me from some emails about finding some...a-hem...wayward kids we know in the Cocoa Beach area from a couple of years back) and all that said, are y'all okay? I'm kind of worried. :-/
