My sweet baby.

I wasn't feeling so hot today after my dinner last night decided to fight back.  So tonight while the kids were getting ready for bed I was laying in my bed.  Alex brought me in a book to read to him and then left again.  When he came back he said, "Mommy, guess what I'm going to do while you're reading to me?"

He climbed up on my bed holding my brush in his hand and then proceeded to brush my hair while I read him a story.  He's the sweetest little thing EVER!  His wife better thank me some day for her wonderful husband that is willing to brush her hair.

I think having my hair brushed is one of the best things in the world.  Too bad Alex is the only one besides myself who ever does it.  He's even learning how to put it in a ponytail.

Now if only I could teach Ella to brush her own hair!

I agree - getting my hair brushed is the most relaxing thing for me. I have trained all my boys to brush my hair for me- some are better than others. In fact, in a few minutes, we are going to go watch I Love Lucy while I sit at the foot of my bed and sort laundry and my two boys at home brush my hair. Makes doing laundry almost something to look forward to.
