Doesn't that kind of stuff melt your heart? Really, how can you say no to that? :) Have fun with the Play Doh! I'm sure we'll be playing it later today also!

LOL, they do learn young don't they?

I would totally be like "Of course you can and if you tell mama she beautiful again you can also have a cookie." I'm shameless like that.

Hi Kathryn! Thanks for visiting my blog. It is a work in progress! Kind of fun though! I thought I would stop by and say hello. It feels just like home! I'll be back as well! :-)

I would say he is too cute for words but clearly that's an over statement.

Kristen said...

Oh my goodness, that smile is to die for!

Seriously, your little schmoozer is just too cute!

And of course you have to give in, at least until the play-doh gets smooshed into the carpet like at our house. :-)

Awww that is soooo cute! I remember those conversations. Now they are older they usually involve money or a promise to NOT do something! lol

Over from David. A heart warming post full of memories for me of mine. Thank you.

Jennifer Fosberry said...

Oh you have to satch that one. My brother had the touch too. I remember one time when we were in high school and Mom was mad at him. She left to go play cards, he wanted something and my Father was smart enough NOT to give permission and my brother called her. This was the conversation:
On the PHONE:
Hi Mom, did I mention you look lovely tonight? Can .....

She fell for it! Mad at me and Dad for another week.

Enjoy.

Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
