And His Name is Daniel

I'll bet most of you don't know that I have a son.
I never post about him.
He's been living across town for the past couple of years.
I don't get to see him as often as I'd like to.
He's 21 and his name is Daniel.
I've always called him "Boone".
I'm the only one allowed to call him that.
It's my right.
I birthed him.
Daniel does not like having his picture taken.
He's a good looking kid, but you can't tell, can you?
Show us your face Boone!
Now take off the glasses.
Maybe if I took him to lunch he might let me get a better picture.
This one has no problem in front of the camera.
No idea what this was.
Put your arm around me and look like you love me.
Stop covering your face and just act natural.  Here,  let's pretend like we're drinking.
OH, HEY, let's look at the camera and cross our eyes!
And he's proud to call me his Momma.

He reminds me of my little brother who's 22. All of the pictures I have of him look like that lol!

just call me jo said...

How cute you all are! I must say I know how Daniel feels, but he might have had less poses if he'd given in the first time. (I love that YOU call him Boone. So cute!)

Oh, and on a different note--I'm trying to read Diana Gabaldon. Outlander was all checked out so I got the first of the Lord John series. Why doesn't this read fast for me? I struggle! Maybe I'm not smart enough to read her.

ain't for city gals said...

Boone (don't let on I called him that, OK?) is really trying to see how you do that nifty eye trick! Isn't it great, being able to embarrass them for a change? Too cute, and thanks for showing us Daniel.

Must be a boy thing. I have the darnedest time getting decent pics of my three sons. And heaven forbid they act like they like each other!

Very cute guy! Thank you so much for sharing him with us even if he thinks its silly. My oldest sons middle name really is Boon isn't that funny.Tell him to hop on over to wyoming and I will give him a haircut he could really be embarrased about, then you can take a super picture. {thanks for all your great comments}

How cute is he!? Love all the pictures!!!

Kris said...

What a handsome guy! You have two beautiful kids Holly! I wish my son would cut his hair. He is so much more handsome with nice short hair! Oh well, they don't seem to much into pleasing their Mama's when they are 21 are they? Funny post!+

Silly boy! Silly mama! I love it! He is a good looking young man and I do love his funniness and yours! I'm glad you're not vacuuming either! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
