Thirteen things I love about my son, Jacob:


1. He does the white man rap... well.

2. He is silly and makes me laugh.

3. He's not ashamed of his body... and proves that by stripping down to his skivvies the moment he walks in the door after school.

4. His curls.

5. He laughs at me. And my silly stories and jokes.

6. The way he talks and plays and cuddles with Doodlebug. He's a good big brother. (I love this picture. Jacob's arm around Snick. Snick's leg around Rufus. I smile every single time.)

7. He loves to eat breakfast foods for dinner.

8. He HAS to eat three meals a day. And when noon strikes it's ALWAYS lunchtime. Even if he just ate at 10!

9. His laugh. He laughs with his whole body. Just like me.

10. He thinks laundry is fun. (He'll make a great husband some day!)

11. He is always excited to see "Army Guys". And still calls them that.

12. He calls me before he goes to bed and when he wakes up when he's staying the night somewhere. Just to check on me.

13. He hasn't made a mark on my couch! ;)

I just want you to know your son sounds amazing. I mean especially cool. Oh can I borrow him to do my laundry?

Okay I am so excited that he likes b-fast for dinner. I grew up that way and it was always a cool treat and my girls after the initial shock always get excited too. French toast or eggs and bacon or waffles are the BEST thing ever for dinner. Um, should I mention cereal too?

Kimmy! I can't believe how much we have in common. Listening to you talk about your son reminds me of me talking about mine. I am assuming you are a single parent too. Jacob souns a lot like Keven when Kev was younger. And...I have a Rat Terrier that looks a lot like your Fox Terrier!

So glad you found me through T13! I love the look of your blog, I'll be back!
