Mama’s Boy. Then. And Now.

Here’s Eric with his Mom at 9 years old.

And here’s Eric with his Mom last night in front of the restaurant in Norwalk where we had dinner. He’s now 20:


And look how happy he is to pose for this shot in front of the sign.

Restaurant: Mama’s Boy Southern Table & Refuge – Highly Recommended.

Their motto: We believe in porch swings and sweet tea. Long conversations with old and new friends. Southern hospitality and charm with a little sass. Seersucker and aprons. Homemade, handmade and made with love. Cocktail hours and a good stiff punch. Anything smoked and pickled. Cowbells, old pick up trucks and loyal dogs. Farmers and their land. Minding our manners and our Mamas…

  2. That gorgeous young man loves his mom – which just proves that a) he’s cute AND very wise; b) he makes smart choices; c) he returns the love he’s given and d) he knows that the only way you’re going to write about this adored guy is when he comes back from a life-changing trip or you note how close he and his mom are. I vote for the mom here – and Eric – I’ve got three mama’s boys – and when they marry and switch loyalties as they must – it is a seismic adjustment. Hug on that gorgeous mom of yours Eric – it’s good for both of you!

  14. He’s a lot taller, and Mum has become smaller! Children have a habit of doing that to their parents! 😉

  16. This is really such a sweet post. Thanks! This week, my ‘older’ friends (ha ha – meaning those whose children are older than mine) have sent kids off to college. And we are all looking back at those photos of 9 year olds and asking: #howdidthishappen?
