Todd

Todd and his Mohawk looking happy. I bumped into Tatiana in the supermarket and she told me that he has gone to Poland for a week to be with his girlfriend. Now I know how his dad copes with the boy – I certainly can’t.

There again, I wouldn’t part with my money for Todd to go on holiday, he doesn’t deserve it.

He’s lovely to photograph though.

    Indeed, he does as they say, take a loverly picture …….

    Ears, chin & nose from his mom.

    B-)

    Even inclined his head much as you do for your photy

    Well, there has to be at least one positive thing about the lad and he’s certainly good looking. No doubt he’s saving all his nicer side for his girlfriend.

    of course they save their best for the girlfriend! sorry…mother of a 31 yearold student.

    It is a lovely picture of him. I’d like to bet that his girlfriend’s family think that he’s the bee’s knees.

    When Todd reaches the age of 50 (if he makes it that far), he will be going on at his children about their manners, general behaviour and style of dress etc. Perhaps then he will realise what distress he put you through.

    What do they say? “What goes around, comes around”. So true.

    My old Dad always told me off for being a “Teddy Boy” and out all hours. That is until I found out what he was like in the 30’s; driving his parents up the wall with his behaviour!

    Send him out modelling, might as well make some money out of him! They break your heart and your bank balance but mostly they come good in the end – trust me, I have 3 sons and I have been there!

    Yes, he sure is a good-lookin’ boy. And the mohawk thing is not as mohawkish as I’d thought.

    That is so far from a mohawk that he should get his money back from the salon. Maybe it will be enough to replace the broken jar of moisturising cream…

    gosh the family resemblance is striking! and he’s cute! though i might be scared of him if i was older and frailer.

    Yes, his mohawk is pretty lame – he forgets that I once ‘lived’ in England where people had real mohawks. This is supposedly the ‘in’ look… but yes, he’s not bad looking.

    Send him to the French Foreign Legion to give him some discipline and then on to the career in modeling

    Lets hope that when he has children they are just like him, and I don’t mean just the looks.

    Hope the mohawk grows, and he gets to color it.

    Wendy has the right of it. The time has come, Zoe. You must follow in the footsteps of all the Mothers before you and cast the Mother’s Curse upon your teenaged offspring:

    “When you are my age – I hope you have a son JUST LIKE YOU.”

    Then smile. Wickedly.

    And join with your anscestors and elder sisters who share the wicked smile.

    *smiling.*

    Sewmouse and Wendy – I’ve tried that. Really, I have. I’m at my wit’s end.

    Is it just me or does he look a little like Peter Andre?

    Suddenly everybody is going to Poland.
    Maybe travel will help him to realise how fortunate he is.

    BTW re the last post I later remembered two head shaped dents – one in my new fridge freezer and one in a loo wall – courtesy of my two sons having a barney. One forgets – angels now;)

    You know, last time I went to Poland to be with my girlfriend, Mrs. Ricardipus was very cross.
