Wordful Wednesday - Spaghetti Face

Ok, so I made it to 6:00am this morning.... I was quite excited when I opened up my eyes and realized I had slept past 4:45am.... oh, it's just the little things that amuse me....seriously!!!
So, I was going through some old pictures and found one that I decided to use for Wordful Wednesday at Seven Clown Circus.

This is my little Joseph about 4 years ago..... he had just got done eating a plate full of spaghetti that ended up more on his face (and hair) than in his mouth. I remember this day....I remember this "time in my life". This picture was taken at the home the boys and I moved into after my divorce. I don't know that I could call it "home", because I never really felt comfortable there; it was a transition time I guess and the only thing good about that house was that it was right by mom's house. Anyway, back to the picture.....just look at those cheeks....and those big eyes. Even with spaghetti all over, he melts my heart!!!
Fast forward 4 - 4 1/2 years and here's my big boy (well, he's not very "big"....as a matter of fact he has always been very small for his age) again with spaghetti on his face....and still melting my heart (even when he has me wanting to pull my hair out):

He's a sweet looking boy. It's amazing how spaghetti sauce looks so permanent.

It goes by so quickly. And at least the amount of spaghetti that made his face is decreasing. ;)

Love the pictures and I'm glad you got some more sleep!

Ok, is it just me or does the type seem really small on Melissa's blog? I seriously have to lean in to read it! And I wear contacts for far away vision. :)
