As more and more of her five kids fly the coop, Drummond seems to be clinging to the ones staying home that much harder. Her oldest daughter, Alex, got married this past May and now lives with her husband. The “Pioneer Woman” dropped her oldest son off at the University of North Texas a few days ago, and it won’t be long until she drops off her foster son, Jamar, at the University of Central Oklahoma.
That just leaves youngest daughter Paige and youngest son, Todd. Todd’s starting his senior year at Pawhuska High School and won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. But Paige hasn’t quite left for her senior year at the University of Arkansas yet. Until she does, it looks like she’s going to soak in all the puppy cuddles she can get at home.
The “Pioneer Woman” posted a sweet snapshot of Paige and the family basset hound, Fred, on Instagram earlier today. In the first pic of the post, we see an adorable close-up of Fred’s face as Paige snuggles him from behind. It looks like Paige is sleeping, but Drummond confirms it in the second picture, taken above the two as they lay together on the couch. And in the last pic, Drummond draws attention to one of her favorite features of Fred’s.
“Hopelessly devoted to…Fred,” the “Pioneer Woman” captioned the post. “I mean, he’s just so mushy and pliable and cuddly. (You’re cute too, Paige! Not quite as mushy…but still cute!) Swipe forward to see Freddles’ cute Basset lips. Bye!”
‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond Loves Posting Her Kids
We knew Ree Drummond was a family gal, but her Instagram page leaves no question that the “Pioneer Woman” is one of the proudest moms around.
Before dropping off Bryce at school, she shared an adorable throwback photo of him as a little boy playing football, with a side by side of him playing today. “How it started vs. how it’s going. Go Bryce! Go Mean Green!” Drummond captioned it.
She even made a similar post for her son Todd, whose serious smile transcends time. “How it started vs. how it’s going – Todd edition. (He’s a little taller now?) GO HUSKIES!” the “Pioneer Woman” wrote.
As for Paige, Drummond likes to post hilarious behind-the-scenes videos of the two cooking together. In a previous Q&A sessions, she even admitted that Paige was the best cook out of all of her kids. This past week, Drummond posted a side-splitting video of her and Paige messing up a recipe on camera multiple times.
“I’ve had a lot on my mind lately,” Drummond said. “Brain fog!! I blame brain fog.”
