Sometimes your heart just swells....

...and you realize you must have done something right as a mom!

I love this boy!
Isn't he cute?

Last night we were having friends over for dinner and cards.
My older son was gone to work.
So I told Jared he could have a friend spend the night.
His friend couldn't come till a bit later in the evening.

Now I will admit that I am a messy cook!!
And I am not one that cleans as she goes...I try, really....it just doesn't work for me.

And while we were in the dining room enjoy this......

....Jared was in the kitchen, waiting for his friend to get here,

CLEANING THE KITCHEN!!!!

without being asked!!!!!

He cleaned the whole.thing.

I heart that boy!

how funny... i was going to write on your other blog post, that it would have been great if you had someone to clean your kitchen like the cooking shows do, and YOU actually DID! lol. He IS a great kid!!! isn't it funny that as mom's, we are most happy with our children when they clean without being asked? :D

What a wonderful young man!

But why is it that about the time you get them trained properly, they up and leave home? With some flimsy excuse like, "Oh, it's time for college." lol
