My backup man

The sound of music. This house is always ringing with the sound of music. There is something playing at all times.

While in the kitchen, doing who knows what, I had Rascal Flatts...Melt screaming on the boom box. Thinking I was alone in my Rascal bliss, I just had to put on my groove. I even think I was singing into a wooden spoon. I turn around, and there he stands, my little boy. He was wearing an enormous smile and said giggling, "Mommy, what are you doing?" I just had to laugh. I told him, "I'm throwin' it down, come on over here." I put him on my feet and we waltzed around the kitchen. As we danced Michael notices my wedding band and asked,"Mommy, what is that gold ring and why do you wear it all the time?" I briefly explained that it was a special ring that Daddy gave me when we got married. It means that we love each other very much and will stay together forever.

Before we finished our dance Michael squeezed me has hard as he could around my waist and looked up at me with his beautiful golden brown eyes and said, "Mommy, when I grow up and get big, I think I'm going to get one of those rings and marry you too." I haven't heard any sweeter words since hearing his Daddy make the same statement.

Oh, that made me tear up...how totally sweet. I can't wait until I can dance with mine. His new version of dancing is stomping his feet. It is getting harder to tell if he is mad at something I did or just feels like groovin' a little bit!

You know I wish I could have a child, a little girl, just so I could groom her to marry Michael one day!

Not if I get to him first! What a sweetie. This reminds me of something that happened this weekend. I was cleaning up in Anna's room and had her radio on; 'Nasty Boys' by Janet Jackson came on and I was dancing (not well, but dancing nonetheless) to it while John M. grooved along with me.
After a minute or so, I turned around and there's Anna staring at me and I said 'What?'. She said 'Oh Mom, I saw it ALL!'.

Little boys are so precious. They always love their mommies so much.

My little boy tells me he is going to marry me too. And, he tells me everyday that I'm beautiful. So very sweet.

I can't wait for the day when my son tells me he wants to marry me. Don't all boys tell their mothers that?
