My sweet boy

August 29, 2008 at 6:00 am 7 comments

     Being the dutifully involved parent and ever trying to make things better for her child, no matter how indirectly, I am the newly minted secretary of our school district’s PTO. An easy job really, one that makes it look as if I’m doing a lot of work when all I’m really doing is writing minutes from the meeting. Truth be told, I enjoy volunteering when I can. So much has been given to us, so much help offered, so much caring displayed, that I can’t help but want to give some of that back. Plus it doesn’t hurt in the karma department.

     Yet I suspect down the road, my memories of PTO will boil down to one in particular. At this morning’s district meeting for all K-8 parents, I watched my son’s class quietly come through the gymnasium on their way to music class. On their way back, I turned to wave at him as unobtrusively as I could, and he loudly whispered to his teacher, “Can I go give my Mommy a kiss?”

     What possible better Mommy moment could there be?

    Isn’t that what it is all about? You just cling to those moments when times get tough, you know?

    Enjoy the long weekend!

    That just gave me goosebumps. I can’t wait for my son to say that, let alone SAY anything:) I’m just glad he’s been giving me kisses rather than biting me lately!

    Yes, you have to take progress where you can get it! We waited for a very long time to hear C say anything or even babble, for that matter. It’s a tough wait, I know. And in the meantime, enjoy those kisses!
