Boy I Love


My beautiful bald-headed boy was fighting off an achy flu. This meant we had a pleasant weekend of him just lying on the couch, sleeping intermittently, watching TV and chatting with his parents amiably. On Sunday he felt better, and he and his girlfriend announced they were making us dinner—steak tacos and quinoa mixed with brown rice and sweet potato. The taco fixings included avocados, chopped onions, shredded cheese, sour cream and salsa. My husband and I gave each other secret smiles. This is a lovely pass we have come to in our life as parents. And our son's gf is a sweetheart.

  1. The only thing that could have made that picture better is if he was holding a sleeping kitten to his chest as he napped.
    Yes. What a sweet time of life. You have SO much to look forward to.

  6. Now I want tacos!

    Isn't it a lovely thing when we like or even love our children's partners? My daughter's boyfriend is just as sweet as he can be and absolutely dotes on my daughter. He is so good to her.

  7. It is such a restful thing for a parent's heart when our children find a compatible companion.
