Little Boy Blue

But, Momma. I don't wanna go inside yet.

I let him stay outside.

I was helpless against this face. A pushover. Soft.

But, Mom. I wanna stay out til 2am and party with my friends.

But, Mom. All the other kids are doing it. It's legal in California, you know?

But, Mom...

Oh Lord, help me.


  1. On some of those statements...that's when tough love comes into action. But for now, just too cute! Sure, Sweetie, go ahead and play a little longer! Besides, winter is coming and I hear it's pretty cold there!

  2. Yup! You are officially in trouble!

  3. I let them have candy after breakfast and get the treat at the store when every part of me says "NO" but the rest that's different... at least that's what I keep telling myself

  4. Seriously... those cheeks alone...those soft, sad, mushy, kissable cheeks...

    You are in trouble. :) But there is prayer.

  5. Yes, Sarah.....his precious future is in your hands.

  6. Yep, you're in trouble! ;-D

    Just enjoyed catching up on your past week. Loved Jedi Daniel, lol!!

  7. definitely in trouble =)

    my guess though is that there will come a day that he'll make you so mad that you'll find your resolve and have no problem saying no.

  8. yeah, can't stand when that lip comes out. Sometimes I do days when all I say is "yes" to every question they ask--hard, but fun for all of us--usually they are simple things--can we jump in the puddles-yes, can we have candy first then lunch-yes, can we take all of the comforters off of all the beds and make a fort-yes, can we sleep in sleeping bags in your room-yes; then it goes back to normal until the next random "yes" day.

  9. He's just so stinkin' cute!

    I had the same issue with my #3, she could stop the world with her eyes and still can.

  10. Remember these carefree days won't you when life get tough as he grows up. I love him!

  11. I'd melt too.
    That face is just too much!
