Release Button

We drove to Lawton Oklahoma today to visit with James. When we said goodbye, Joyce gave James a long hug. I mean a very loooong hug. So long that (after a while) James began poking Joyce on the top of the head, on the ear, on the shoulder,...

Joyce said, "What are you doing poking me?"

James replied, "Trying to find the 'release' button."

I laugh -- Joyce was less amused.

Then as we drove away, Joyce lamented, "He was trying to find my 'release' button. {sniff}"

"Sorry dear, I guess the umbilical cord got stretched so thin between Arlington and Fort Sill, it must have finally snapped."

Poor Joyce. *sniffle* (but still LOL'ing at the same time.)

Chicka--
Man may work from sun to sun, but woman's work is never done -- not until the kids pushed the release button anyway. Then ... well ... it's over, man.

Next Top Mom--
Thank you for the award, I will treasure it, like ... forever.

My eldest step-son will be leaving for Ft. Sill in 3 days. I want to cheer and cry at the same time. But mostly cheer because he's been such a pain lately.
