What's Love Got To Do With It?

It was a lovely Sunday morning. We were out of coffee.....a Sunday morning must....G-man had just returned from a coffee and doughnut run. We were all relaxing with double chocolates and Boston Cremes when Ross broke the silence and asked.....

"Mom what does love mean?"

I thought to myself....oh sweet boy, what a great question. What a deep question from such a little person. Such a complex question. I must answer this in an equally complex and deep way...thinking....thinking. I began....

"Oh Ross, what does love mean? Good question! Love is more than just a feeling, love is......"

Suddenly, my little precious deep thinker interrupted....

"Mommm, I mean in... tennis. What does love mean in tennis?"

Oops, never mind. I guess I can save the love talk for another time ;)

Hi Mimi!! that is so hysterical, how cute.
I just got your email, and yes, I seem to be ok, just had my check up last week and everything was great (it has been 15 years, I found out about it when my first child was 8 months old) glad to hear your sister is doing well, it seems to be very treatable and curable, Thank God. One of these days I'll write about it. It may be helpful to others. I'm sure your story was inspirational to so many woman out there. Have a great night

Oh, that was PRICELESS!!!!

ha ha ha

Way to go, Ross!

NOW - as for my 19 year old calling at midnight. I know I should've just been happy that he called, but this is my son that TESTS ME, TRIES ME, TORTURES ME, and always calls to brag about his latest way to annoy me. The previous call was "Mom, you're gonna be mad, but I'm living with my girlfriend." These are regular occurrances. He calls, tells me something to rile me up, then gets mad when I lecture, and hangs up on me.

ARRRGH!!! LIFE with teens. NOT always so fun. =0)

Just you wait! =0)

You are off the hook girl, for now!

I remember when my son was really little he asked me where he came from. I said that I would explain that when he was older (he was only three).

He said, "Well Isaac is from Oregon and his mommy told him!" LOL!

Oh, and french fries do sound wonderful!

Kellie said...

But really, if you get a chance, I would love to know what Love means in tennis too!
