Thursday 13 (#2)

THIRTEEN GREAT CHANGES IN MY LIFE SINCE MY OLDER SON MOVED BACK HOME: ♣

1- HE MAKES A KICK ASS GUACAMOLE ( he makes many delicious dishes)

2-WHEN THE REST OF THE FAMILY SCREAMS 'NO' TO MY ASKING 'WHO WANT'S TO PLAY SCRABBLE', HE USUALLY WILL SAY " I'LL PLAY ONE GAME WITH YOU MOM."

3-HE REPLACED THE TINY PARING KNIFE THAT I WAS USING FOR CHOPPING VEGGIES TO A LARGE CHOPPING KNIFE WHICH MAKES LOADS OF SENSE AND CUTS MY WORK IN HALF

4-HE HAS ENCOURAGED ME TO USE FRESH HERBS AGAIN, BREAKING OFF MY LAZY FLAKE HABIT (parsley,basil, oregano flakes)


5-HE TAUGHT ME THE BEST WAY TO CHOP THOSE HERBS EASILY

6-WHEN I'M OVERWHELMED IN THE KITCHEN.. HE SENSES IT AND ASKS IF I NEED HELP, THEN PROCEEDS TO HELP WITHOUT NEEDING ANY INSTRUCTIONS. ( I was making Chicken Marsala and my chicken got ahead of the rest of the dinner.. He quickly dressed and tossed the salad, washed and set the table, chopped my parsley and started washing pots!)

7-HE POINTED OUT THAT MY WHOLE WHEAT BREAD HAD CORN SYRUP IN IT AND I'VE CHANGED TO A HEALTHIER BREAD

8-HE POINTED OUT THAT I AM BUYING AND COOKING TOO MANY PROCESSED FOODS ( he points out a lot of stuff to me.. I don't always listen to it all)

9-HE WILL RUN ERRANDS FOR ME LIKE GETTING GAS, GOING TO THE LIBRARY, TAKING MY YOUNGEST TO JIUJITSU ( he did a run to the most dreadful errand-COSTCO!


10-WHEN HE REHEARSES HIS 'NOISE' MUSIC AND MY HOUSE IS SHAKING, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO BLAST MY MUSIC WHICH GETS ME TO DANCE AROUND MORE OFTEN

11-HE HAS WONDERFUL FRIENDS WHO ARE ALWAYS AROUND AND ADD MUCH LIFE AND HAPPINESS TO OUR HOME

12-HE HAS PUT HIMSELF ON A DIET AND EXERCISE PROGRAM WHICH IS MAKING HIM shrink. HIM GETTING HEALTHIER IS MAKING ME SO HAPPY AND ITS'S ENCOURAGING US ALL TO GET HEALTHY AS WELL

13- I LOVE HEARING THE GREAT STORIES ABOUT THE KIDS IN HIS CLASS WHEN HE COMES HOME FROM WORK
I JUST LOVE HAVING HIS COMPANY AND GETTING TO SEE HIM EACH DAY ♥♥

(he is about 4 yrs. old here)

Your family doesn't like to play scrabble? You poor thing! We play almost every Saturday night.

You might consider using that large paring knife to cut those apron strings.

I've got the insurance providers pulled up on the computer instead of the phone book out (from my TT). Your son is terrific! What a keeper for some lovely young lady someday. You taught him well.

You did good mom! Me, I re-did their rooms the day they left so they couldn't come back. LOL

This is so incredibly sweet, I absolutely love this list. You have raised a wonderful person and son.

I surprised to see this one, as I had been thinking along the same lines as you! Instead I opted to use the one you used with the food!

Very sentimental and loving. Great tribute to a wonderful son! Gotta love them!
