Little man and I were getting ready for the day. I was putting his shorts on when he looked at me.
“Daddy, we’re twins.”
“Oh really? How so?”
Mike lives in North Florida with his wife, two children, two dogs and a cat missing a piece of her ear named Sadie Mae. He is a 30-something guy trying to balance family, work, gardening, travel and his love of food. When the kids are asleep and the house is quiet he writes two blogs, Black Coffee & Bourbon chronicles the daily circus that is his life, and Sweet Tea & Bourbon which documents his foodie adventures.
“We both have black hair.” he said.
I tussled his blonde hair and told him to put his arms up so I could put his Lightning McQueen t-shirt on.
“And we have green eyes daddy.”
His eyes are a blue/green mix like his momma’s.
“And we’re both boys.”
He got the last one 100% correct. Before we walked out he asked if he could put on some smell good for the ladies. I handed him the bottle.
“I can do it myself!” he said as he squirted 3 pumps onto his neck. He strolled out smelling like a middle schooler. I put the cologne back on the shelf and trailed after him into the living room.
