I am mother to two teen boys but recently seem to have acquired a third. The Dark Lord's best buddy B comes over nearly every day after school. But he always calls me first to ask it it's OK, which I love.

My boys give me a lot of one syllable grunts passing as language these days, and it's hard to get a smile out of them. Not cool at all, apparently. But today I caught proof that teenaged boys are indeed capable of the same sweet, open smiles we loved when they were little.

I can't look at this without smiling myself.

They can smile like that??
And with mom looking, camera in hand?

Well, yes, and when they do, it certainly takes a mama back to their sweet childhood days and phases!
