Totes Adorbs

More Like "Captain Adorable"One look at Wes and you just know that his power of cuteness is evil and could overtake you at a moments notice. Add in his latest phase of Cuddle Monster and his powers are multiplied exponentially. He’ll reach his arms out for a “hug” and next thing you know you’ve been carrying him for an hour and you can’t/won’t put him down because his sweet arms are wrapped tightly around your neck and he’s saying things like, “I’ll keep you warm, Momma.”


But lately, man…he has had some great hysterical moments of cuteness. I wanted to try to document them for posterity and to share them with you so that you can see what I’m dealing with over here. PURE, UNADULTERATED EVIL. Some of these statements or questions seem innocuous when you first read them, but imagine them spoken by an adorable boy with giant blue eyes and big blonde girls and you’ll see exactly what I’m dealing with over here.

  • “Nikki! You are not old enough to dance sexy like that!” While watching his sister dance during GLEE. She wasn’t ‘dancing sexy’ for the record but I have gotten on her for that before. 🙂
  • “We don’t say, ‘What the hell?'” At family dinner. Of course.
  • “Momma, you look beautiful.”
  • “Did you have a good run?” Another variation: “Did you have a good boot camp?”
  • “I’ll rub your head for you…” In response to my regular headaches. His headrubs are actually quite good.
  • “When I grow up, will I get boobies too?”
  • “Nikki! Come see Momma’s big muscles!”
  • “Momma…I don’t really like wereworlves.”
  • “Can I have some privacy?” When he feels like he doesn’t really want company in the bathroom with him.

  1. He is a cutie! And naturally I had taken a big drink of coffee when I got to the line, “When I grow up, will I get boobies too?” I almost ruined my keyboard!

    My son is 7 and he never wants to be picked up and rarely wants to sit on my lap anymore. But last week I was looking at Pinterest and he came over and got on my lap. Suddenly, I heard him say, “F*@k this sh*t, I’m a dog in a fort!” I almost fell out of my chair. He was reading one of your pins! His reading has really improved, although I don’t think I’ll have him demonstrate by reading that particular pin!

  2. First, I love your typo (or is it one?) : “adorable boy with giant blue eyes and big blonde girls” – yes, I can see him being the type with big blonde girls following him around, especially when he’s telling them they’re beautiful and asking for his own set of boobies 😉

    We are VERY MUCH in the anatomical discussions over here as well. Tony delights in talking about my breasts and comparing them to Bryan’s mother’s. Cause that’s not at all awkward.

  4. Hahaha it’s so nice and sweet that he likes hugs and cuddles although that can really be tricky and Wes getting his way =P only thing is that it’s just too endearing =P but you can see it as he’s a smart kid =D ^^ xx
