I Cried Alot Today

Bennet and I had a special 'Mom and B Date' today to see The Princess and the Frog. Turns out I can't keep my hormones in check because I cried alot.

She voluntarily took my hand in hers as we walked across the parking lot to the movie.

I cried.

She told me as she jumped up and down, "I'm so excited for our date Mom"

I cried.

While holding her little snack pack of popcorn, soda and candy she said, "I love you Mom" and leaned in for a kiss.

I cried.

Out of the blue she said, "Thanks for taking me to the movie theatre Mom. It's the best day ever"

I cried.

Sometimes I look at her and it's hard to believe she's 4. Hard to believe that my first is already becoming such a little person. Full of attitude and thoughtfulness at the same time. Just when I think I couldn't possibly love her more. . . she wants to hold my hand.

I cried.

She probably won't remember our special date. But I will. I'll remember that in those final weeks before Thermos made his/her debut I was able to sneak away with her for an afternoon. And it will probably make me cry.
