In the last 12 hours I had two moments with my boys that I wanted to share and remember for when they grow.
First was yesterday after school, with one of Lucas's longtime friends. They don't go to the same school so they don't see each other on a regular basis, but probably about once a month. Yesterday Lucas's bus was late and he was walking home from school. He saw me waiting for the bus and stopped to chat. Once Lucas got of the bus, they were chatting and chatting like they had never been apart. Lucas is lucky to have a few relationships like that where he just clicks with people. As a mother it's such a good feeling to see your children have those relationships and get a long with people. I took a picture of them walking together and it makes my heart shine.
Later we had a dinner (albeit slow) at Swiss Chalet from the activity advent calendar and then went to see the lights at Spruce Meadows, which was yesterdays activity, but Alexis's birthday dinner took priority. ;)
Then this morning I took Nathan to school and one of the other parents waiting in line asked me if I was Nathan's mom. I said I was and she proceeded to tell me what a great kid he was. She has had him twice over the last couple of months in her group at school and she said she told the teacher she can always assign Nathan to her. He's polite and listens, takes his turn. She said he was one of the best kids she's been around and she works at a school. I'm sure I was blushing with happiness. Again such a satisfying feeling as a parent that we are doing a good job.
I was lucky to go to hot yoga after with my best friend, honestly the best 20ish hours.
