I was so inspired by this article that I thought, “You know what? I’m going to make this a regular topic on my blog”. There are so many wonderful things about parenthood that I can’t help but focus on the wonderful moments.
So once a week, I’m going to post a new “Just Wait” moment to keep alive the beautiful and wonderful moments that come with watching your child grow.
This week’s “Just Wait” moment comes from this morning…
Just wait…..for the first time you see your daughter waving and smiling at her new friend at daycare. It makes me smile knowing that I’m giving my daughter the security and encouragement to explore new situations and build strong social skills.
Seriously – it was so adorable! We stood at the door, waiting for Mrs. Lupe to answer, and little Melissa arrived shortly after (an adorable 2 year old). Malia was waving and smiling excitedly as she saw her friend. And Melissa ran up to me, looked up and said “Hi Malia!”
Her mom approached and said “Is this the little girl you’ve been talking so much about?” We both smiled big smiles at their obvious excitement.
