Food Fashion and Flow: On the Good Ship Lollipop

On the Good Ship Lollipop

 As we approach Mothers Day, I wanted to celebrate the special little someone that made this holiday possible for me. My son Kaden brings so much light into my life.  I was born to be a lot of things.  A poet,  an inventive cook, a prolific writer and this amazing little boys mother. 

Motherhood, the most exhausting job you will love.  A mother is a protector, an intercessor, a friend,  a bringer of life.  My son makes  my life sweeter than cinnamon. He is the sunshine of my life and the apple of my eye. I love my son more than I can express and when he says things like: "Mommy, I want to be just like you when I grow up" Well, nothing makes me smile more. He says: "Mommy I want to be just like you. I want to pray for people like you do and I want to be a man of God.  My little boy aspires to be a man of God. I know I must be doing something right.

I am sharing some fly on the wall moments from a day in the life with my son.  (there are lots of photos, so I hope you don't mind us sharing them with you) Since my son is always borrowing my Fedora, I decided to get him his own and he was so thrilled and of course he said: "Mommy, can we dress alike?"  I couldn't resist:-)  We went on a little excursion to the park and  the candy shop and then I could not get this song out of my head:

On the Good Ship Lollipop, It's a sweet trip to the candy shop where bonbons play, happy landings on a chocolate bar:-) Remember that song by Shirley Tempill?

Play your cards right

This is what I'm working with L-O-V-E
 My son has me in the palm of his hand figuratively and literally, LOL. That image on the card Kaden is holding is my silhouette:-)

A smile and laughter is good medicine.  We smile and laugh a lot!

Rebels with a cause

Life is sweet for us:-)

On the good ship lollipop its a sweet trip to the candy shop 
 where bon-bon's play, on the sunny beach of peppermint bay Lemonade stands, everywhere

Crackerjack bands, fill the air, and there you are
happy landings on a chocolate bar.  
See the sugar bowl do a tootsie roll 
in a big bad devils food cake
if you eat too much, oh, oh, you'll awake
  with a tummy ache.

On the good ship lollipop its a nice trip, in to bed you hop, and dream away, on the good ship lollipop:-)

Have a Happy Mothers Day!!!

oh, snap! he is the cutest! i can't wait to be a mom :)

Carsedra said...

LV he is a handsome young man. Motherhood is one of he BEST things in the world, I will never understand anyone that has kids and doesn't appreciate the gift God has given them. You have women that want kids and can't have them, but then you have women that have them and mistreat them. I cherish my little man every single second of every single day!! And your son wanting to be a Man of God is a great testement to who you are as a Woman/Mother of God!!

Your son is so adorable and you are a beautiful mom.

These pictures are adorable.. I mean really your little man is so stinkin cute!!! Yes ma'am your raising him right! The bible says train up a child.. I can tell from your tidbits you shared here that he is an amazing little gentleman. Motherhood is something ain't it? People look at me and they see typical young mother, four kids, single, yada yada.. Then I hit em with my words, my brilliance, the mother in me, and they don't misjudge me again. Thanks for reminding me of this great reward God has given me. Like you, I feel blessed. Happy mothers day to you an amazing mom. You rock!!

Carrie said...

What a special family. The rebel without a cause pose really tugged at my heartstrings, as did Kaden's line about wanting to be a man of God. I hope you enjoy a well-deserved mother's day. I'm digging your boots, btw. And where oh where did you get personalized cards?

angiejenkins2011 said...

To say these photos are amazing would be an understatement. I am melting just looking at these photos and the love between you and your son. I never wanted children and looking at these photos makes me rethink it (LOL)

You are such an awesome mother. And your son wanting to be like you says so much. You are an amazing example. It looks like you two have a lot of fun together. and I think this is just the sweetest post. Happy Mothers Day!

angiejenkins2011 said...

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I love the "my mom rocks t-shirt" girl you do. And that deck of cards with your image on it and spelling out the word L-O-V-E is so original. But thats who you are, and you take unique and original to a whole new level.
