Who would’ve thought that staring at your child can make you cry tears of joy? Minus the fact I cry at every milestone my children hit, and every “firsts.” You can definitely expect tears from me. But, I never imagined just crying at a restaurant just listening to my 3 year old tell me a story about robots.
Since we moved back to Arizona, my family and I would always eat at Olive Garden. Even when Skyler-Ian was just my “baby bump,” we rarely go out to eat so we went out and I found myself staring at him as he talked of robots, and monsters during dinner. At some point between the beginning of his story my eyes watered up. My friend even said “If you cry I swear I’m gonna punch you”! HAHA! My Husband even asked why I was crying, I turned away and all I could say was “he is growing-up so fast”.I couldn’t even pay attention to my son’s story, I just hugged and kissed him and bought him ice cream. Who would’ve thought that my little baby bump would be growing-up so fast.
Embrace them, love them, and cherish those memories. ❤ They’re not forever.
