The fact that Bossy’s son still lets Bossy cut his hair.
That man hasn’t walked through salon doors maybe ever, is that right Bossy’s son? Maybe once in a mall in Virginia.
This looks pretty good, but later in the day, when he stuck the bangs up at odd angles? Even cuter.

One of my favorite things: That young man who still looks at his little sister that way and let’s her lean on him that way.
Wait! No photo of the even cuter?!

How awesome that they are so close. My brother didn’t hug me except so h could pin me down and torture me. On a sad note, when did Bossy’s son lose three fingers? 😉
Debby saysApril 7, 2009 at 9:08 am
Sweet siblings indeed! (cute hair too!)
Maria saysApril 7, 2009 at 9:18 am
*sniff, sniff* I always wanted a big brother. Bossy’s daughter is lucky to have bossy’s son and it looks like they know they are lucky to have each other.
*sniff again* It’s just beautiful….

That is so sweet! Now I want DuckyBoy to have a little sister! This is unfair propaganda!!
Carroll saysApril 7, 2009 at 10:10 am
Of all the fabulous brother/sister pix you’ve posted, I really think this one’s the ultimate. Does he call her “Squirt”? This really looks like a “Hey, Squirt” moment to me 🙂
See, this is the thing new parents can’t possibly even begin to realize. That thing th’t happens to your heart when the baby is born? The feeling like your heart is about to explode? It doesn’t stop feeling like that, even when they grow up. This photo? I guarantee Bossy’s heart practically explodes every time she looks at it, right Boss?

I’m glad you all got to see and hold your boy last weekend.
I think I will feel a wee bit sad tomorrow night because, for the first time in 19 years, our boy won’t be at our seder table. Alas, he’s heading to Philly with new friends and multiple invitations for seders, shuls, and sleeping accommodations. I’m thinking Pesach Bacchanalia!
Take care, p.j.

Awesome picture! I love the way they so obviously LOVE each other!
Reeb saysApril 7, 2009 at 11:58 am
FRAME that photo and keep it forever.
There is so much that I’m entranced by about this photo: Bossy Daughter’s sweet boney shoulder; the other one tucked in under Bossy Son’s broadening shoulders; his right hand casually, comfortably wrapped around her hip; his other hand tucked into the pocket like a model in an ad; and that look, that electric fond-sibling look, like they’re sharing a fun memory (that probably doesn’t involve haircuts by mom.) Perhaps the memory is of having their entire lives documented by a mom who delights in being allowed to cut her darlings’ hair.
Dang good lighting too.

Your children are so obviously secure and sure of who they are. It shows and I am captivated by them. It transcends mere happiness.
Ms. Cranky Pants saysApril 7, 2009 at 1:46 pm
This right here, folks, is all that’s good and right in the world. Bossy, you are a lucky, lucky woman!
reen saysApril 7, 2009 at 1:46 pm
Look at these people!!! It appears that Bossy’s Daughter just told Bossy’s Son something hilarious…or asked him to do something for her pretty pleeeeeeeeease. 🙂 Great haircut, awesome sibling love shot!
Theresa saysApril 7, 2009 at 2:02 pm
This makes me jealous and hopeful. My kids are 4 and 6 and all they ever do is fight. Maybe one day we too can have great sibling relationships on our household.
Kerry saysApril 7, 2009 at 2:05 pm
I can’t imagine how seeing your kids love each other so much must feel. How amazing, awesome, beautiful! Seriously, this picture brought tears to my eyes and I don’t even know them! Sweet.
Stacey Ball saysApril 7, 2009 at 2:18 pm
That is a fantastic picture and a fantastic haircut!
margie saysApril 7, 2009 at 2:56 pm
A lovely photo.
David saysApril 7, 2009 at 5:19 pm
The only reason my sister and I ever got that close was to exchange physical blows. You truly do live in a different world than I do.
anon saysApril 7, 2009 at 5:22 pm
I love it! But what awful accident left Bossy’s son minus a few fingers?
krg saysApril 7, 2009 at 6:06 pm
and I love how bossy’s children love each other.
Emily saysApril 7, 2009 at 6:48 pm
What a sweet photo. However, I have never been a fan of sideburns- they’re just so ….. 70’s!!!
Annie saysApril 7, 2009 at 7:48 pm
Great picture of beautiful kids. My 21-year old son always comes to me for a haircut – and he’s in a band! What trust … it never ceases to amaze me.
Jenn @ Juggling Life saysApril 8, 2009 at 12:49 am
You definitely don’t get that kind of brother/sister sweetness from a freshman and a sophomore.
Vanessa saysApril 8, 2009 at 12:54 am
That is so sweet.
I wish I had photos like this of my siblings and me. You know, as if we actually liked each other.
