Honest to goodness...does it get any better than this?
My kindergartner's very first Christmas program. Ohhhhh, man alive! I coulda just eaten him up! So happy and proud, he was!
I love it, when the kiddos file out, and they are searching the crowd for moms and dads...looking around nervously, hoping to catch a glimpse.
Then there's me, in the crowd...wildly waving in the dark, hoping to catch my little ones' eyes! And then...the moment:
When they see you, and their face lights up with joy and pride...makes me a wee bit teary every time. Every. Stinkin'. Time.
What year does this end...this searching out of parents? I don't remember with my teenager? (Secretly, I'm quite certain he still searches us out...or at least, that's what I tell myself!)
All I know, is that I never want that moment to go away.
I hope that my children's faces will continue to light up at the sight of their mama and daddy until they are old and gray.
I pray that I am a good enough mother that they will cherish our time together, just as I cherish my time with them...forever and ever.
Man, I love my kids.
