Mommy Brag

On the homeschool webgroup to which I belong, every once in a while, one of the moms will break out of the I'm-a-mom-with-nothing-special mode that we're all supposed to adopt and post what we call a "Mommy Brag." This is when we announce something wonderful that one of our kids has done.

When Matthew was home on leave this winter, my boys went and did something nice. They stooped to having their pictures taken for me. Not something they usually enjoy, this time I really gave them little choice; I made and paid for the appointment, although I did not go along and remind them to smile. As you can see, though they did. I suspect the photographer was an attractive young woman, although I'm told one of the guys needed the stuffed animal and funny noises to crack a smile!

The result?

Don't they look great? The two standing, from left to right, are Ethan and Matthew. Jay is down in front. Jay and Matthew are all but taken; Ethan is available, as far as I know. A lucky young lady would have to wait for him to finish Basic Training and AIT, but I will be accepting applications to share with him when he's done! Just leave them in the comments section.

You have a handsome group of sons. I wish my daughters were a little older. I'd make them apply for the position of "Taken by Ethan".

Congratulations, Mom! You've done a great job raising those sons.

I don't have any daughters of a suitable age, so just wanted to say, what a handsome bunch of young men you've raised, Melody!

I'd like to say that Jay is taken. He's mine and nobody else can have him. Plus I've decided next semester at school I will just have to pass out flyers to young academic women looking for a nice young Army boy. Wouldn't Ethan just love to kill me for that? I think that is what would make it so much fun.
