A DE-LICIOUS Christmas Treat

I am at my daughter's first grade Christmas party. I'm standing near the food table enjoying the delicious treats and chatting a bit with my sister-in-law (my niece and Alexis are in the same class).

I am standing with my back to the door and I am watching the kids play games, handing out slices of pizza to all the happy first graders, shoving apple wedges into my mouth and then I glance over at my sister-in-law and I suddenly see her eyes become fixed on something and a strange smile settles on her face. I turn around.

It is him.

He sticks his head into the classroom.

The classroom filled with way-to-many loud six year old children and their Christmas-sweater-wearin'-mothers, way too loud Christmas tunes coming from the stereo in the corner, way too much chatter going on about Santa this and Holiday that and waaaayyy too many pieces of apple being shoved into my big mouth .... just long enough to wave a hand at his darling daughter .... AND .... to once again allow all of us motherly-types to gaze upon his MIGHTY FINE GOOD LOOKING FACE ... one last time.

After smiling at him, I turn back to my sister-in-law (*that really should wipe the drool off of her lower lip with a holiday napkin, by the way*) and I look her right in the eyes.

She says, only mouthing the words, "He is sooooo good looking," and I nearly had to throw my arms around her to hold her up from falling to the ground or from melting into a pathetic puddle beneath the table.

I mouthed back, "Yes. He. Is," shoved yet more apples into my mouth and then turned back to get one last look at him - before he disappeared into the hallway.

I looked back into the room of rowdy children and loud music and there I saw - 10 mothers - all standing up perfectly straight, none paying attention to the party around them ... with their eyes focused on the door just behind me and big ol' goofy smiles on all of their faces.

He was gone - but there they stood - like hypnotized school girls ... gazing after him in hopes of catching just one - more - glimpse.

On the upside ... He will be around for at least 4 more years - we have many opportunities to see him again. We are only looking - you see - all of us motherly-types. He is married and so are we. We don't want him. We. Just. Want. To. Look. At. Him. - A. Lot!

Was it Brad Pitt?

Perhaps Tim McGraw?

jen said...

i love looking. looking is very, very nice.

Nicki said...

My orthodontist is a hottie. It's pretty distracting when the salt and pepper hair and perfect teeth come at me to look at my BRACES! I'm such a dork. And I'm happily married. But it's still distracting!

Jen said...

WHAT?! No picture with this one? That's just mean.

Eileen said...

Sounds like an extra bonus, an innocent one at that, at a chilren's Christmas party!! Nothing wrong with looking and smiling. Very funny post.
XOXO

Melissa said...

McDroolworthy!...

Dawn said...

Who is the mystery man? I must confess, if I was writing this story, the mystery man would be my doctor. I just like to look at him. Cute story :)

Irene said...

Yeah, looking is fun. Hey, men look just as much, most likely MORE, than we do!

Andrea said...

Ooh...I know the type! Enjoy the next 4 years of stolen glances!

Jodi said...

OHmommy said...

You are such a tease!!!

Angela said...

Hahahahahahaha! That is awesome and totally made my night, thanks for the great visuals!

Kari & Kijsa said...

LOL!!! Mmmmm...George Clooney? no..he's not married either....
Just a merry hello on the day after Christmas!

Blessings,

Angela said...

Now there are some times when I am glad I can't see, but some days when I wish I could. If I was at that party I am sure I would have been wishin

Karen said...

Y'all are desperate indeed if you're thinking that Santa is all that. ;)

My OB is quite the hottie, but it's awkward knowing that his hand was up my hoohaa. Somehow that just takes the romance right out of anything that I could imagine.

Joanna said...

Oh man, I'm still laughing!! Please tell me no one made that growling noise after he left. :)

Happy looking and make sure you have camera for us curious types - just saying.

EC said...

Don't you just love the kind of men you can drool over? It makes leaving the house fun ;)

Lizzy in the Burbs said...

So who was this dashing married man? The school principal?? We have a dad of one of the kids that goes to my younger son's school, gorgeous, and all the moms do the same thing! (I'm not sure if his wife realizes it or not tho!)

JCK said...

Those kind of distractions are good for the eye muscles and food for the soul. Just looking! Promise, just looking! ;)

frog ponds rock... said...

cheers Kim.xxx

Amanda said...

That was such a funny post! Who was the guy??? I'm in need of something yummy like that to look at. Its been ages since I saw a guy good looking enough to make me drool...

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

Was my husband on the loose again??? :-)

I TOLD him to stay home!!

Lisa said...

Hmm... I think we all need to load up a bus and come have a looksee! ;o)

multipleblessings said...

*lol* ... I wonder if he knows what he leaves behind him... ;)

I'm still laughing. There is a man at my gym, that always brings his daughters. The women in the nursery practically fight on who get to sign them in. I'm hiding b/c I don't want him to see me while I work out.

girlymom said...

Oh somebody's got a crush!!! This is a funny story, thanks. I think I would have been cramming cookies in, so congrats to you on the apples! My parents have a look but don't touch policy- which we have always found funny.

jennwa said...

Does he know that you all drool over him?
I wish my kids school had someone like that, it would surely make school function more interesting.

The Stevens Family said...

That is a great story! I want one of those. Taylor is in preschool, dance, and soccer and I think my husband is the nicest looking out of all the dads I've seen! I look at him everyday so that's not fair, I need someone like that in my life.

Jen said...

Fools aren't born, hot guys make them in their spare time. *wink*

patti_cake said...

Looking is FREE!

Heather said...

I wish you could post a picture, but that would be creepy.

Kami said...

I feel the same way about Jon Bon Jovi... sigh but he doesn't visit our school.

:)

Maria said...

That's so funny when that happens. I know EXACTLY what you mean!

Melanie said...

Couldn't you just snap a quick picture of one of the kids with him in the background? We want to see!!

Stacie said...

haha.

Yes, the look no touch policy!!!!

Casdok said...

The word tease comes to mind!!

Angie said...

I have a feeling "HE" is on to you and the other mommy lookers. I have a feeling HIS wife is on to you, too. Probably both used to it, actually.
KEEP BELIEVING

Shellie said...

So, where's the picture???

Sniz said...

I know someone like this. You pegged it right...we don't want him, we just want to look!

shay said...

I was waiting for at least a picture. How unfair of you....keeping him all to yourself!

suchsimplepleasures said...

lookings good...very good! i like looking...a lot. i have that same problem...drooling...when i take my son to preschool. some of the dads...omg! that's why, i try to get him to school...every day!! even when he isn't supposed to be there ;)

Toni said...

I think looking is perfectly acceptable, Kellan. It is the touching that gets one in trouble! (: I love looking at our dentist; it makes the whole experience a little more palatable.

Don Mills Diva said...

Just because you're on a diet doesn't mean you can't look at the menu -enjoy!

Queeny said...

A new teacher? A parent? The principal? Who is this hunk? You can't just leave me in suspense like that.

On another note, remember what Dr. Phil says on that TV commercial: "It's OK to look."

Natalie said...

Hehehe...you made me giggle. :)

Tot's Mom said...

Reminds me of those high school crush. But I guess we are all too old for that now but no harm LOOKING anyway!!

Valarie said...

Kellan- My mama always said " I might be married, but I'm not blind!!" Thanks for tha laugh.

My Goodness said...

Nice. Christmas eye candy. You didn't even NEED a stocking!

Stella said...

Looking is the BEST!

I used to work in a daycare center and we used to sit at the front desk and wait for a handful of dads to drop off or pick up each day because they were just so beautiful!!

Wendy said...

I understand completely!

I have just found your blog, you are a hoot. It's like I have found a book I can't put down. Your humor of the real world is incredible. Don't mind me if I keep commenting all the way through. I am going to add you to my favorites right now so I can find you again in case I go to bed.
