Male bonding in today’s world

album 1 026
I want to be a baby again.

Everything is sooooo interesting!

For instance, Boy Blue was watching his Papa wash the dishes with such a look of awe on his face. I might add that Mama had the same look of awe on her face.

Boy Blue watched Papa clean each glass, plate and piece of silverware (not really silver mind you) like his very future depended upon this study of dish washing. Maybe…it does depending on the future wife.

Boy Blue watched with wonder and excitement at every movement his Papa made. The sound of running water caused him to flap his arms and make a growling sound from deep inside his chest. Papa answered the little growling manchild with a big silly clown face and smile. He was quickly rewarded for this silly face that only a Papa can make by more Boy Blue arm flapping and louder growls.

It was all very primitive.

I would even go so far as to say, that dishwashing with Papa, should officially be labeled as an important male bonding experience for Boy Blue.

Now, how’s that for the modern man????

    I enjoyed looking at your family pics…you’re all so adorable!

    Papa and Boy Blue should definitely make the effort to bond this way more often….thereby giving you, Pumpkin, a much deserved break from those daily chores! Maybe the next picture to be posted will be the one of you napping with Boy Blue!

    Such a precious picture. It’s nice that you have a man that will help with the dishes. I have one too. They are few and far between!

    oh! oh la la c’est beau! simple pleasures! Nothing as nice as sleeping with a baby!

    Love the family photos. Cute kids!

    I must ask…not to get into a long ethnic conversation…but your French husband. Is he 100% french? Most of the French people I’ve met were very light and “nordic” looking. He’s more tanned (and darker hair) than I am… and I’m part greek! ;-)

    RaleighRob, what kind of French people have you been meeting, and where?!? I’ve rarely met a (naturally) light-haired French person, and I stand out like a sore thumb here because of my light skin and blond hair.

    Pumpkin, that’s a really sweet picture. And a man who does the dishes by his own free will AND watches the baby at the same time? He’s a keeper!

    Samantha- well, one was from Normandy vicinity, another was technically French-Belgian. And the only time I’ve been to France was a brief visit in the Calais region. So I guess all my references are pretty “up North” so that probably explains it all.
    Next time I visit France, if I’m lucky, will be closer to the Meditteranean and I’ll get a more diverse view. ;-)

    My husband is Czech (his mother) and Laosian (his father) but when he was six months the family moved from Prague to Laos because his father was declined residency in the Czech Republic (then, communist). At four years of age my husband moved to France with his parents for a better life. It is a little sad because he only has seen his grandparents in Laos maybe twice since he was four.
    So, that is the story of my tall dark and handsome Frenchman. He is multi cultural to say the least.
    Me nap…ohhhhh, please. I do dream.

    “…Mama had the same look of awe on her face.” LOL.

    Great post. Great guy you have there, too.
