Sunshine Sunday - my phone, anniversaries, and melting me

One of the things I am really grateful for, even thought it seems trivial, is my iPhone.  The camera on it isn't my DSLR, but it's not bad and I take a whole lot more pictures on it because it's with me all the time.  It's fun to be able to catch those moments that typify my boys.

Rex actually asked me to take this picture of him.  He's working on skateboard tricks, though he's not Shaun White just yet.

We hadn't visited some of our elderly neighbors for a while.  (I didn't do much of anything during those morning sickness months.)  We stopped by the other day and brought some flowers.  It happened to be their wedding anniversary, so it was perfect.  They are in their 90s and still seem to be in love.  That makes me so happy to see.

This little guy needs a haircut, but he has been learning how to melt me.  His current line is, "Mommy is the beautiful princess of my dreams."  Really?  Yes, you can have whatever you want, Baden.

Oh, I love these boys.  I am so glad I get to be their mom.

Thanks for reading.


  1. Oh my word. I love it when my little guy calls me his princess. Kids are completely honest, so you know the compliments they give are totally genuine.

  2. The other day my youngest told me I looked beautiful. I actually started crying, because I was overcome with the sweetness of it. Boys can be so sweet.

  3. I got a pretty drastic haircut yesterday and my oldest (3.5) told me he liked my hair. That meant more than if it had come from anyone else especially since he had told me he didn't want me to cut it cause he liked my long hair. So true, they are very honest little things.

  4. Cute! At the risk of sounding totally weird, my husband and I went to a movie Friday night and saw you and Mr. Roar there as we were leaving. I was too chicken to say hi (and I didn't want to interrupt what I'm sure was a rare night out for you and your husband), but I just wanted you to know that you looked beautiful and I wish I'd had the courage to tell you hello and how much I enjoy reading your blog. :) Happy Sunday!

  5. Oh, that's just beautiful!

  6. Cheri,

    Just wait until your daughter arrives if the boys can make you melt...


  7. Insert giant smile here!

  8. I'm the same way with my iPhone over my other cameras. Love that he thinks you're a princess! Glad to know that the sweetness of being a mom to a boy gets better and better.
