Close to You


5:30 in the afternoon is my favorite time of day. It's when I pick my sweet little boy up from school.

Almost every day he has some sort of art project to show me. After I've sufficiently oooohed and aaahhhed over it, he shoves it in his backpack and away we go.

But yesterday he showed me a drawing called "My Mommy". He was so proud, telling me all about my hair (blue) and my shoes (round and black).

And I wanna leave diss here in my cubby, Mom. 'Cause dat way when I am missin' you so much you will be close to me. I can just run over and pull you out of my cubby and give you a little squeeze.

I told him I thought that would be a great idea.

And if he had drawn my heart on that masterpiece, it would have melted right off the page.


Melissa :

I know mine just did!

Kim :

They are so precious. Enjoy it.

The 5 Bickies :

I would have been a puddle...what a gogeous little boy!

Mrs. Fabulous :

Awe, that is so precious!

5:40pm is my favorite time of the day! Darn traffic! ;)

Tonja :

You must make a picture of it and show it to us! There are several ways to preserve this work of art! I still have some pics of myself that the boys drew when they were small, and they are some of my most treasured possessions! Find a way to save it!

Henley on the Horn :

I can't breathe b/c that took my breath away! What a precious post. Will you give your little man a hug for me too?

Nadine :

Oh my...that's just the sweetest thing a child could say. My heart is melted along side yours.

Sandra :

I'm actually tearing up over this post. Have y'all read the book The Kissing Hand? Your little boy would LOVE IT. xoxo

Sooooo Sweet!!! How I miss these special sweet moments with little boys! Somehow it's just not quite the same when they get older, i.e. college boys! ;)

That is one of the sweetest things that I've heard. When I hear stories like this, it makes me even more excited for when we have kids.
