Son? What Was That?

That was what I asked my 7 year old son tonight.  He was flying madly running through the house, trying to finish his after dinner chores in time to have some ice cream.  I  had just heard what sounded like something hitting the floor and scattering.

There was a looooooong pause, and then came the very remorseful sounding reply, “Your sewing stuff”.

Yep, my box of embroidery floss, the one with the spools all stored in numerical order, was upside down and no longer quite what you’d call orderly!!!

The truth is, it only took about 15 minutes to re-sort the floss.  And I didn’t even lose my cool!!  And yes, the boy did get his ice cream – double chocolate brownie flavor.   I love that boy!!  Besides, he was the only one of us brave enough to go stand by this snake that was wound into our cyclone fencing!!  Yes, that’s a real snake – about 3″ long!

I love my boyzzzz!

  • Give that boy a rub on the head for me!

  • I will…. Actually, I’ve been rubbing his head for the last couple of days because he has his new summer hair cut.  Just enough left on top to gel and spike up a bit for going to church!!  He loves it when I rub his head and tell him it’s from Corin!!
