NOOOOOOOO….you CAN NOT ride your sister like a BULL!!!!!!

Standard

Sooo….if you know our family, you know that I have a little cowboy…….it makes my mama heart feel better to still call him “little”. 

This story begins when he was about 2 1/2 years old and THE Girl was not even crawling yet…….YES I KNOW YOU HAVE HEARD THIS ONE, but it leads up to the next one, so bear with me!!!!    SHEEESH!!!!!

I am in the kitchen making something and I hear this little distressed squeaking noise from the living room…..I walk around the corner and there is THE Girl on her stomach with her big brother on her back…….he has a rope under her and has one hand high in the air…..

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!?!”  I ask ever so calmly!!!

 “I was just riding sissy like a bull!”

***Things you NEVER imagine coming out of your mouth as a mother………“NOOOOOO……..you CAN NOT ride your sister like a bull!!!!!”

He never again pretended that THE girl was a bull, but the couch arm, the footboard of the bed, the toy box….etc…..was fair game.

I REALLY thought he would someday grow out of this stage, but at almost 12 (aaaaggghhhhhh) he still wants to be a bull rider.  So what does a mother do in a case like this…….?!?!?!    TAKE HIM TO MEET PROFFESIONAL BULL RIDERS, of course!!!!!

So he hung out with and talked smack (lots of it) with Luke Kelley, Lorenzo Rios, and Fransisco Morales!   I REALLY think Cory and Luke were cut from the same cloth!   OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!  They talked smack for a good 20 minutes till Cory shut him down with “I’ve had more girlfriends than you will ever have in your dreams.”  That is when Luke turned to me and told me “He definently talks like a bull rider!”  oh my!!!!

What I got from the whole experience…………This is what I wanna do when I grow up!!!!!!!……..

prim and proper……..YAH RIGHT!!!!

Standard

A few weeks ago my mom and I spent three days together going through pics and sharing many stories….(you know….the kind you wait to tell till you are grown! heehee) ….and laughs…..and tears!

After Christmas I want to blog some of the pics we found but here is one to tide you over……..

So…. as long as I can remember my mom has tried to instill the “prim and proper” into me!  We all see how that turned out!  but apparently I was resistant very early on……..

Needless to say…….this one had me laughing for hours!!!!!!!
