Glad you are getting help this summer and that DB has made that transition to DM!

My college girl has been much more help than she was last year - but not without asking. What a difference not having to ask makes!


Well, maybe he is just growing up ;)

gary rith

I give him 2 thumbs up :)

Cassi Renee

Sounds like he's good at SHOWING you how much he loves you --and his sister. The Girl Next Door is a lucky lady :-)

Green Girl in Wisconsin

What a great kid--but really no surprise!

Smalltown Me

Kids can really step up when they know it's important. BTW, I also get that look when I try to photograph my younger, but not the finger!

Susan Walker

My son (16) is that way, too. I never say anything about it to anyone else, though, because whenever I do, it's met with, "Wow. What does he want?"

Nothing. Some kids are just genuinely amazing.

So glad you can fully relate!

Susan Walker

(Actually, though, I do brag on Facebook about it from time to time.) ;-)


What a good egg!


Good boy.


He may not read your blog, but I'm sure he wouldn't mind reading it if you printed it out and left it somewhere for him to find.
I think he is just mature enough to realize that you have enough on your plate right now. That says a lot about him... and you and your husband!

Karen (formerly kcinnova)

You've got me beat. My 19yo may take out the trash and unload the dishwasher without being asked, but I'm pretty sure he would not mow the lawn without being told to do it.

I figured that either he had requested that you not blog about him *or* something was going on that was too tough to talk about. Glad it's the former and not the latter!
(And yes, much cuteness!)

Busy Bee Suz

What a great young man...shenanigans or not. You and Mr. Fix it raised wonderful, respectful and down-right good people; all deserving of a shout out now and then. or everyday? :)
I'm pretty sure he was showing you a hang nail on his middle finger. No? LOL

Sweet! He could give my husband (who is home on disability) a few lessons ;)
