LOVE LETTERS TO MY SON
Our summer would not be completely documented with out all the basketball my child plays. I am terribly proud of the athlete he is and love to watch him “drop buckets!”
He has grown to nearly6’2″ and my basketball terminology has grown this summer too……..”put it up” – shoot the ball…..”bra”- brother…….and the list goes on. I will admit that me saying these things are about as silly as him saying some of my phrases like “oh foot.” Tomato or tomato however you slice the bread I am glad we still understand each other 🙂 I always tell him “I am so glad YOU are my kid” and I am!
These photos are from the week he stayed with his “BRA” Dwayne at UNC camp in Chapel Hill. They spent their days doing ball drills and their evenings in the dorm eating everything in sight. I looked forward to the 10pm phone call every night for him to say “I am in my dorm and going to bed.” A momma worries, ya know?
I wont be mushy but anyone who knows me knows I live for this kid. At every age I have said this is the best age, even being a teen I can still say this is the best age! The time has changed our conversations from puppies and bugs to ball and friends. He wears those darn headphones more than I would like but his love of music comes honestly and he needs to get “pumped” for the game 🙂
The hair you might be wondering……Ya’ll ya gotta look the part. As a matter of fact that hair got him some funny nicknames at camp and when your momma has a background in hair artistry…well ya know.
xo, sweet child of mine
