Raising Dreamy Smurf to be a fine husband!

I got my hair chopped this morning...seriously considered going butch style but my husband in his VERY supportive way said......"really??!!".....with the right eyebrow and right upper lip lifted just so......so......I opted to leave a couple inches for his sake. The kids came home from school and didn't even notice.....I KNEW I should've gone shorter!.....so the following conversation took place...

me: boy..... no-one even noticed I got my hair cut.....

Hefty: you did? let me see...

me: I did...

Hefty: (after careful inspection): oh....(and walks away)

Dreamy: I noticed mom....and I like it....the men are going to think you are VERY attractive.....

LMAO!

Oh my dear Dreamy Smurf....how I love you!.......as you can see HE gets it! We've either managed to raise a genuinely sweet boy or an incredibly convincing bullshitter. Not sure which one is the truth, but quite frankly, I don't care.....because either way he'll make some woman very happy one day. If his future wife should ever happen to read this....you can thank me later!

To Hefty's wife.......I tried.....and I'll keep trying until he leaves the nest....but a mom can only do so much with the genes her child has inherited and Hefty Smurf is indeed Papa Smurf's son.....My dear husband has many wonderful qualities....as does Hefty.....but sweetness....or a romantic nature.....is not one of them....it just doesn't come naturally....

OMG....I'M WRONG....I just remembered a conversation that I was snooping in on between Hefty and this girl he likes at school. It was the most comical thing.....they've been IMing each other and Hefty wrote things like......I luv u......u are my everything......I miss you.....You're beautiful......LMAO!.......YES, THOSE ARE DIRECT QUOTES!!!!!!!!!!! So there is still hope.....apparently it's just me that doesn't bring out the sweetness.

And that little story makes me want to bring up another topic.....snooping.....yes, I am a snooping mother ......and I wear that title with pride. Many mothers feel very strongly against snooping.....they have moral issues with snooping and with giving their kids freedom and privacy.......and I obviously do NOT have those same qualms.....when my kids move out of my house they they will inherit their freedom and privacy. My father in law just bought and sent my kids a book called "Kids Are Americans Too". I just started reading it last night. It's suppose to be about the rights that children have as Americans. I jokingly (but not really) told my FIL that if this book is going to make my kids boycott our rights as their parents that they wouldn't be reading it. So far, that doesn't seem to be the case tho....the book is well written....so far.....
