once upon a time…

i remember when Power Rangers ruled the world


light sabers were the toy of choice ~


Batman socks were not allowed to be washed


Darth Vader capes had to be worn.


hours were spent on the couch watching Star Wars

~ every movie ~

chapters one through six


we could never get enough of a T-Rex

eating everything in its midst.


~ now ~

it is about fantasy football,

college entrance exams


apps to download,

making some bucks

to buy some stuff


typing texts to friends upon friends.




he was my little baby ~

almost 9 lbs of sweet and cuddly coos

with barely a hair on his head,

chunky little cheeks


two eyes full of baby blue.



he is 5′-11″,

long and lean with an athlete’s build,

two eyes of hazel,

muscular, hairy legs


in possession of some serious cooking skills.


I keep wondering when and how this all happened,

17 years

have come and gone,


what I do know for certain

is I could not be more proud,

of my baby boy


what he has become….



once upon a very long time……


in the beginning

in the beginning…


at the present time

in cooking form – fave shorts, shirt, socks…


first day of work

Mr. Professional….


Happy Birthday Peyton!

My Little Man

~ Forever ~

      Yes, it is done. The big 17. He seems excited and i have anxiety. I have a feeling the next year and a half i am leading up to becoming a grade A, one hell of a basket case mom. πŸ˜‰
