Happy Friday Company Girls and Wonderful Readers!
I hope you all had a wonderful week, and are gearing up for Father's Day this Sunday! No doubt my Hubby will be spending his special day working hard at finally putting down our wood floor in the hallway! hee hee!
In my post from yesterday I promised the story of our anniversary today, but alas I did not have the chance to get all the photos edited for that post. I will have to put it up sometime this weekend. So sorry.
I thought I would tell you this story instead...
In preparation for my upcoming anniversary last week I went shopping on a gift card and bought myself a little beachy sun dress. Nothing fancy, but for someone like me who is rarely seen in anything other than jeans, it was quite the unusual thing. I didn't try it on in the store, instead bought what I hoped would be the right size and tried it on when I got home. While I was trying it on, Kiddo walked into my bathroom and after looking at me, his face erupted in a huge grin.
"You look beautiful Mommy!" he said.
I replied with a thank you, trying to enjoy the compliment, though my reflection didn't look that great to me.
"Now you need someone to dance with." he said as he outstretched his little arms awkwardly.
We attempted a strange hand holding sway in the small space of my bathroom, and when that just didn't do I scooped up his lanky body and embraced him in a proper dance pose (well as proper as you can get holding a small child). With one arm around his narrow back, I held his left hand in my right and stretched out our arms. We danced for several minutes, swaying and turning and giggling; me stealing sweet kisses on his little face and neck.
It was one of those moments you want to stay in forever. Just me and my little boy; his sweet scent and delicious laughter; Tiny fingers pressed into mine and so much love in that moment I thought my heart would burst. Spontaneous. Delightful. Joyful.
I cherish those moments.
I hope you all have a wonderful, "moments" filled weekend. Don't forget to go by the Company Girl site next week and vote for your favorite photo! Voting starts on Monday!
