Beautiful Moment.

August 23, 2014

I just had the most beautiful moment of all my life!
I sometimes dance in the living room with Dexter and I’ve never been sure he understood it but he smiles and giggles and thats good enough for me. 

Today he managed to play music on my phone so its been playing on and off for a little while for the last hour and I picked him up and danced with him for about 30 seconds and he wanted to get down and play with his shoes. 

But just now while I was sat on the sofa watching him, he walked up to me, phone in one hand playing Toby Keith’s ‘Missed you just right’, and grabbed my hand in the other and started swaying like he was dancing with me.  So I held his sweet little clammy hand and danced with him. Then he wanted a kiss.

It actually melted my heart and brought a tear to my eye. I love him so much. All the tough parts of parenting are worth it for moments like this!
