Thank God for Little Boys...Snips & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails

Thank God for Little Boys...Snips & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails

 

Those who know me, know my family is the center of my life - second only to my faith!

My boys are 18 months apart and they have been the apples of my eye since the day each of them were born. Matthew (on the right) is the oldest and he embodies everything an older child typically does - he's very independent and has the biggesst heart of anyone I know. In his short, albeit 31-year lifespan, he's gone from a painfully shy introvert to a social butterfly. My husband and I often joke that we can't shut him up - but, because we know how far he's come, we don't even really try!

It's so hard to believe how quickly time has flown by - it really seems like just a couple of years ago, we were sitting in the floor building crazy projects with Legos! He has grown into a wonderful young man and will be 32 his next birthday (in 2020).

 

Matt Ryan and Me

 *Yes, both of my boys are tall - all of us over 6' tall. For reference, I am 5'13"!! 
Photo taken DEC2018. 

 

Ryan, on the left, is my 30-year old baby and yes, he embodies the yougest child's qualities - always! He knows that if he needs a shoulder, he calls me. He has always been incredibly social, athletic and the life-of-the-party kind of guy! He knew what he wanted to do, went off to college for it and graduated with degrees in business & marketing. 

 

He promptly took a job in recruiting and has never looked back - go figure! He was recruited and accepted a fabulous position at a recruiting firm in Uptown Chicago. He loves what he does and we are so very proud of his values and incredible kind heart that is full of faith. 

 

I'm so very thankful for both of my boys - I'm thankful for a wonderful relationship with each of them and who we are as a family. We are always comfortable being honest with one another and we laugh SO much together - at each other and at ourselves too! 

 

Thank God for Little Boys...Snips & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails!

Hi Debe - you are understandably proud of your sons.  I am sure little girls' parents are equally boastful of sugar, spice and all things nice.  

Posted by Michael Jacobs, Los Angeles Pasadena 818.516.4393 17 days ago

Thank you, Michael Jacobs and, yes, I'm sure the little girl parents feel the same - as well they should!

A family who laughs together stays together..... thanks for sharing your amazing kiddos, one can read how proud this Mommy is and how blessed she is.

God bless you and yours, have a most wonderful Thanksgiving week.

Your little boys aren't so little anymore and I really like how you say you are 5'13", haha.

Posted by Brian England, MBA, GRI, REALTOR® Real Estate in East Valley AZ (Arizona Focus Realty) 16 days ago

We do enjoy laughter together - and often, Bob Ratliff! My boys do make me proud and yes, I know I am blessed!

God bless you and yours as well and I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving too, Bob.

No, they're definitely not little any longer, Brian England! Some days I miss those years when they were little - the pitter patter of feet running through the house all day long. The kiddos always seemed to be at our house and there was rarely a weekend night that we didn't have an 'extra' kid or three spending the night! 

Now, if one of them would just have a grandbaby for me... LOL

And, doesn't 5'13" sound SO much better than 6'1"?!! Being a female, it always did! 🤣

Hi Debe,

That's a beautiful picture of the three of you. Your boys are very handsome! It's fun to see their personalities from boys to men. I'm so glad I'm not in that picture. I would probably measure up to your son's knees. 

You look marvelous and so happy!

Debe they must be close to 6'- 7".  you have been blessed in many ways.

You have very good reasons to be proud.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) 13 days ago

Good morning Debe Maxwell, CRS - you have two wonderful sons and are rightfully proud.  We had two daughters and remember cabbage patch kids and American Girl.
