iblog Writing Contest

Well, if you are visiting from the iblog writing contest, I have to admit

I totally goofed.  

It's not my fault really.  I slept in until 9:00am! My kids actually were quiet long enough for me to sleep until 9.

OK. I had earplugs in. 

Anyway, sleeping in until 9 really messed me up and I was not thinking correctly when I entered the past post for the contest.

OK. It is my fault.

But, I've had some coffee now and I am posting the past blog right here on this very page.
So nothing wrong can happen.

It is titled, "My Sweet Boy"

My sweet boy had his first day of summer vacation today and spent the day hanging with mom.  Unfortunately, I have the worst headache today from this head cold.  I tried to make the best of it and he was very sweet to understand.

As we ran our errands this morning, and stopping for some of his favorite hot chocolate, I began telling him about when he was younger ( only 4 short years ago) when he would chat away and of all the words he mispronounced through his toddler vocabulary.  We laughed about it and it made me think of all the little things he does now that one day I will look back on and will make me smile.  So I have thought of a quick little list of the five that always make me smile.

1- The way he will all of a sudden start freak dancing (ANYWHERE) and yell out "Break It Down".

2- In all seriousness, refers to his little brother as Little Rat.  I really do think he means it as an affectionate term. He will say, " You want to go play outside, come on you little rat".

3- Every one of the many dimples around his mouth when he really smiles.

4- How he ALWAYS has a song in his head and is forever singing.  We will sing the same song over and over again until someone tells him to stop. Then he'll change all the lyrics by changing the vowels in the words.

5- The fact that at 6 years old, he has slept with a stuffed animal since the time he was a few months old.  I can still see him rubbing the Pooh bear around in circles on his cheek like when he was 9 months old.

Love you little man!

So cute! I've never heard little rat used in such a sweet way before! (I'm visiting from The Girl Next Door contest.)

Coming from The Girl Next Door!
This is so sweet! I had to comment because my son (2yrs) fell in love with a stuffed monkey and takes him everywhere. He loved it when he was on a few months. I cringe the day we lose it or can't find it!
