Saturday, The Kid received a First Place in his Speech contest. He was absolutely phenomenal. I watch the entire 9 minutes, through blurred tears. Continually, amazed by his endless well of talent.
Tuesday evening, The Kid played in his first Junior High basketball game. He is new to the team but we saw tremendous promise. His father favorite part: "He was excited. He played the game like he loved it." For me, The Kid played the game like his Uncle.
And Friday evening, following practice, The Kid will attend his first Boy/Girl Jr High Dance.
Every night, I slow danced The Kid to sleep.
My little chubby, toddler snuggle boy.
Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.
I'm so happy The Kid found his place. It's just, I don't know... did he HAVE to leave me behind??
I bless the day I found you
I want to stay around you
And so I beg you, let it be me
