unconditional handsomeness

one of my handsome nephews
I am a people person. But who wouldn't be, with a "people" like this in the family?
I spend 6 hours a day with little people that teach me about unconditional love, patience, and hard work.
Little people know what counts.
My own children also taught me truckloads about life, and even though they are growing up now, they are still little people to me in many ways. Maybe because unconditional love is the mortar that still holds us all together.
Right before my sons left for a camp out this morning, my #4 bear-hugged me and called me "mama", which I love. And my #3 promised me he would not do anything stupid, like take dares or melt his shoes in the fire, or break his pelvis. Again.
But really, adults are cool too. Just not as cool as little people. Or as good-looking as that hunk in the photo.

MMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....he is delicious.
Those eyes look like chocolate.

I'm glad your "men" promised NOT to do anything stupid while on the camp-out, but they probably still will. That's kinda like a merit badge they have to get or something isn't it?

You are probably right!

I agree about those little people.
I have my reasons for liking really old people too.. like the fact that my Grandma is "brutally honest" with me. ~ And I don't have to impress them. -- I guess old people and kids are kinda the same in that sense. huh...

My hubby is out on the hunt. I am a deer widow for 4 days. How bad is it that I can get a TON of stuff done while he is away.. but yet... I miss him so much.. I sit down on the computer and drwn my sorrows reading blogs..

Little people are my favorite, too. But small men who melt shoes and break pelvises aren't too bad, either. :)

Wouldn't it be nice to spend 6 hours a day with that handsome guy!

I hope #3 and #4 are home safely from their camping trip and they kept their promises.

those EYES on that little boy are AMAZING. How could you not want to just gather him up and smoother him with kisses.

you have good sons !!

(I am so glad they will try NOT to break a pelvis)

What a cutie! Yes, little people are very cool. I'm glad your son reassured you, though melting shoes actually sounds kind of fun to me. :)
