Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website, PlantingDandelions.com

The Household Goddess

Sometimes being a mother of boys means finding rocks in the washing machine, presiding over belch contests at the table, and waging a losing battle over the default position of the toilet seat.

Other times it means you can walk through the house looking like this

and your five-year-old will stare up at you with enormous wide eyes and say, "Mom. You look gorgeous right now."

Without even a trace of sarcasm.

Wow, you are me, only I have to straighten my hair and my three sons still think I'm gorgeous with clips all over my head.

I don't detect sarcasm in Patrick's comment, either. You'll just have to face it — you're gorgeous.

Wow, lovely - these little boys, they see right through to the heart of things. To the truth.

Kids can be the best ego boost around ~ of course no one can kick you in the butt better too!

This is a really lovely blog! Came across it kind-of by accident and it has added a sparkle to my evening!

Having sons is just about the best thing in the whole world isn't it?

Oh I love this post! Your son was right, you know. You do look so beautiful in this pic.
