The Hard Way

One of the things I love most about my kids is their bodies -- their tiny, perfectly compact little bodies. Sometimes I look at them and marvel "I made that." Well, I had some help, but you know what I'm talking about.

Punkin is getting taller by the day, fast losing the last of her baby belly. Bubba, so tan from being in the sun at camp every day, loves to walk around the house in just his underwear as he prepares for bed and I swear he looks just like Mowgli with his floppy hair and knobby knees.

I hope I can say this without sounding pervy, but I especially love their butts. They're just so cute! I have, over the years, developed a habit of smacking them on the butt. Not in a spanking kind of way, but in a "Hey there Sparky", coach-to-football player kind of way. Or if they're walking up the stairs behind me, I just can resist giving them a little goose.

Well, the kids have now decided to return the favor. I'll be cooking supper and all of a sudden - whap! And you know what? That shit is HELLA ANNOYING. So. No more put pats. No more gooses. LESSON LEARNED.

The kids aren't stupid. :-)

Heh. Guilty! Guess I have to restrain myself, as well, lest they think that people just go around patting other peoples' butts. Whoops. (But they're too cute to resist!)

I always pinch my little one's heineys...but the first time the return the favor? It's on.

I think more mom's than you think have done the same thing and gotten the return favor. I know I have.

Oh, oh, oh, yippee! So glad you are back. Loved catching up. You know you can just leave your friends hanging like that! :0) And I like your writing, so there!
