What's a Mother to do?

When....



her thoughtful three year old proudly presents a carefully crafted beaded necklace just for his "Momma to wear"?

She wears it, of course.

Then...when packing up to head to Kroger the three year old says, "Momma, where is your necklace I made you?  Will you PLEASE wear it to Kroger?"

The mother (vainly) hesitates and squirms a bit...then see this face:



"All the mans and ladies will like it.  Especially William," (William is the produce guy.) the three year old assures his mother.

The mother gets many double takes from other ladies and "I feel sorry for you" gazes from college girls at the grocery store.  But, as the proud three year old marches right up to William to show off his mother's new necklace, this mother is even prouder.  "I made this necklace for my Momma.  Doesn't she look beautiful?"

I love you sweet, Asherboy.  Thank you for my beautiful necklace.  It perfectly accessorized my pink cardigan, how did you know?

This is hilarious, and so sweet at the same time. I love that necklace! :)

Limes and lemons have some differences, but are similar in their health benefits. I think you are getting the same "goodness" from limes. You just never hear of people cleaning with them? LOVE u

How SWEET is that? Girl, you wear that necklace, and wear it proud. Not all boys would do that for their mommies!

So so sweet! I have the same necklace at my house, but have never been asked to wear it around town!
