Some times in life we can get caught up with the every day struggles of life itself , Bills, Sibling, Work , Spouse, Children , Family and Friends can be daunting at times. You have to remember to enjoy life and sometimes live in the moment. My child started an after school program a couple of weeks ago, and she needed to be picked up 2 days out of the week. The Family decided whom ever was free would pick the baby up .
The first day the program started I pick my daughter up, it seem like that every thing in my day that could go wrong, went wrong from pot holes to Co-workers, to internet connection, you name it , just one of those days. I pick up my child still mad and frustrated about my day, all of a sudden my child comes running out of the school like the building was on fire, all excited. She gives me the usually warm greeting that she normally does she ask me how was my day[Sounding like she has been on this earth before] she begins to tell me about her day.
She tells me what they did in class what they had learned, how much fun she had, and how Jaden didn’t listen to the teacher and got in trouble. I laugh just that fast I had forgotten all about the day I was having about all the troubles that I’ve had gone through that day , just watching my daughter enjoying school and life itself. For some people listening to kids talk about kids stuff might be trivial but for me I enjoyed every moment. I didn’t get to spend a lot of time with my 2 oldest kids maybe every other weekend, so I didn’t get to see all their younger moment like losing teeth ,First steps or unwrapping Christmas presents, so with the youngest 2 I enjoy every little moment.
As we continue our walk home on this warm spring day my daughter saw a campaign sign and asked me what did the signs say I told her I’m not going to read the sign you known how to read try it, sound it out after she took her time and figured out what the sign said my daughter had the biggest grin on her face with the look of accomplishment that she was able to figure the sign out all by herself, I’m standing there with a grin, for me it’s like a Kodak moment one of those memory that will last for ever.
That’s why I love these walk homes to enjoy and live in the moment because one day my baby will grow up and be an adult, but right now her mind is on School, Ballet, and Shopkins I know soon their will be boys, her first Bra , Prom, Graduations and some day maybe down the road a Wedding . So for now I’m enjoying every little moment they grow up so fast.
