Sweet Child O' Mine

Some of you have seen this already when I sent it out on email, but I was urged to share on the blog as well. I'm just gonna copy and paste (hopefully) so I don't have to type it again, but my kid is the sweetest EVER!

I've got to share this story; I'm still smiling about it :-) Brent said the CUTEST thing to me today while we were at IHOP. He had his usual, a Funny Face (for those who don't know, a Funny Face is a chocolate pancake topped with whipped cream eyes, nose and mouth, maraschino cherries in the eyes and chocolate chips on the mouth... a child's delight) and I got a sandwich with fries.

He asked if he could have one of my fries and I told him he could have as many as he wanted. He picked one off my plate and said "Oh, mom. You're so good at sharing and teaching and playing and making yummy stuff, I love you!" An early Mother's Day present :-) Had to choke back the tears a little... okay, a lot :-)

He also made our waitress all misty-eyed. Since we go there for lunch on a weekly basis, we see her a lot and she thinks he's just a doll (but of course!). This was the 4th time in a row that she's been our waitress, and when she came to take our order, Brent said "Hmmmm, I think I would liiiike... a Funny Face, please" (as if he had to think about it; he gets it EVERY time) "And I'm so happy to see you again! I love it when you bring us our pancakes!" She just melted and said in her southern drawl "Awww, you sweet little man you! I love to bring you your pancakes, darlin', you come and see me anytime you want, you just make my day!"

Now tell me that is not the cutest thing in the world! :-) Hope everyone has a good weekend!

Hey, great "title!" NOW you're a blogger! ;)

And again, I will say that your son is adorable. Luckily for him, he takes after his Aunt Jenny.

He truly is the cutest thing!
That is a story to keep forever :)

Thanks girls :-) Yeah, I was sitting there trying to think of what to "title" it, and it hit me out of nowhere. Now I must go listen to some Guns N Roses :-)

And Jen, I have something funny that I just remembered. The other day while on the computer I was laughing at something, though I don't remember what it was. Brent said "is Aunt Jenny On The Block funny, mom?" I said yes and he goes "Yeah, I think she's pretty funny AND pretty funky, too."

John died laughing and said "Son, if you ONLY knew" :-)

LOLOLOL.

"Funky"?? Where the hell did he get that one?

Renee said...

LOL. I'm not sure. Actually, I am. I usually use the term "funky" when I'd like to say "fucked up" and Brent's around :-)

And for the last two days he's been saying "frickin". Like "I'm gonna throw this in the frickin garbage, okay mom?"

I'm going to hell.

Jen said...

LOLOL.

Renee said...

And I'm such a 'tard if I thought saying "frickin" was much better than what I COULD have been saying, cuz that word still does not sound great coming out of a 4-yr-old's mouth.

I'm gonna have to get creative with my verbiage, I guess.

Anna said...

Hmmm...
So if "funky" is your word used for "fucking" and Brent is calling Jen "funky"...

Renee said...

No "funky" is for "fucked up". Which is even funnier :-) But "funky" could be just weird, or out of the ordinary or just really... fucked up :-)
