So we’re going sentimental this week :-). Here are a few of my sentimental moments. This was when I moved in to an apartment after my split. Stuff littered the room. That’s how that marriage remnant landed on top of the chair. Cj was going to sing with other kids in church when I snapped this shot.
At first I didn’t notice the sign he made on his right hand. It’s the I love You sign. I’m sure it’s just coincidence he flashed that sign when the camera clicked because I didn’t teach him anything about signs yet, but I felt warm inside when I discovered it. With the direction he’s pointing it at, it’s like he’s teasing either the portrait or it’s just sentimental me.
I don’t freaking care that I look like E.T or that I have no hair, nor body at all. At least there are feet, albeit two left feet. I did guide his hand to write the caption. If I may be boldly sentimental – I’d say to me it’s a masterpiece.
And this is during his 3rd birthday. There’s something about kids not yet able to blow their birthday candle and the mom gets to blow it instead. It’s fun, it’s heart-warming; it practically erases wrinkles.
P.S. His dad showed up in the middle of the party to foot the bill. Whatever that meant, I enjoyed heading the emotions department immensely.
Happy Mommy Moments, Mommies!
