Why is this boy smiling?


A) Because he adores his mother, and especially loves her taking pictures of him.

B) Because his mother is beautiful.

C) He’s in a state of appreciation for all his mother does for him.

D) He’s forsaken his mother, developed a crush on Emma Roberts (Julia’s little niece…star of Hotel for Dogs), and he is hiding a picture of her he printed off the computer behind his back.

Little dude isn’t even eight yet! I thought we had more time! I thought we had a deal, he would love me and only me, forever! HT thinks I should find solace in the fact she’s a petite brunette, “like his mother.” Nice try HT. I searched for solace but came up empty.


Okay, so it is kind of cute, the way he’s carrying the picture around, putting it on the music holder of the piano as he plucks out little tunes. To her I’m assuming. And it is sweet how his face turns red at the mention of her. And though I was hoping for a fabulous gay son, I guess it’s okay he’s evidently straight.

As long as Emma doesn’t mind moving in with us. ‘Cause I’m never letting him leave me.

    Couldn’t be cuter.

  2. Hilarious! I LOVE this. He turns red?! Oh, so cute. But I’m with you. I’m never letting mine leave either.

    Just finished reading a book and I had to look up this line for you after reading your post. John Medina (a brain researcher) says, “…because males must get their X [chromosome] from Mom, all men are literally…Momma’s Boys.”

    Speaks well for him never letting go of you, too. 😉

    So adorable! (she does kinda look like you!)

  5. Amanda says:

    well if he was gay would his guy ever be good enough either?? The wee fella might not be so wee but I’m sure *she* is just a passing fancy, you’ll always be his no.1 ;D

  6. Heather says:

    I was totally going with– E) All of the above– until I noticed you mistakenly left it off. It’s ok, I understand, you were distracted by D). It happens. ;o)

    One look at his cute face and she’ll be moving right in! He looks so much like HT…..

  8. Jamie says:

    I think it is super duper cute!

    How cute is that? He’s picked someone who looks like his momma! And serenades? Lucky Emma!

  10. Jerri says:

    Is this boy smiling because he saw himself in a mirror?

    So. Darn. Cute.

  11. Claire says:

    I love how he turns red yet is still wearing a Lego and Star Wars tee shirt. Very cute.

  12. Michelle O'Neil says:


    She doesn’t really look like me. Todd was just humoring me.

  13. amber says:

    This whole post is funny and sweet! But I know the feeling. Only W also like the little brunettes… 🙁 lol

    Adorable. I’m in love with Seth.

  15. Kathi says:

    You are so funny. Yeah, I guess heterosexual will do. He is just adorable.

  16. Kim says:

    SO cute!! Everything about this is adorable.
    (And I know what you mean, about secretly wishing for the fabulous gay son!)

  17. I know, I thought I had it made with two sons – doubled my chances! Nigel was Seth’s age when he first swooned over a cute brunette, but Aidan took longer to confirm or deny. Just found out last year – he’s into girls. But the cool thing is that his best buddy, since first grade, is gay (and out at 11). I’m so proud.

    P.S. Seth is too cute!

  18. Betty says:

    Aww! He’s really cute about this. Wait till he’s 16 and driving him and his girlfriend around.

  19. Deb says:

    So sweet! Don’t you see how much she looks like you?

    You made me laugh! What a guy! And what a beauty! I can kinda-sorta understand his infatuation. One lucky girl, whether he sticks with her or lands with another ten or twenty years down the road, to get a guy who makes music just for her.
