Ok, so I when I started this blog, I was hoping that it would be a kick-in-the-pants for me to write, and an avenue for me to share my thoughts and musings about life as a working wife and mom living far away from home. I did not set it up to be, necessarily, a "baby book" of my kids. Not that there's anything wrong with this type of blog. Actually I love, LOVE reading my friends' family blogs. It's just not what I was trying to do with this blog. Plus, since this is a public website, I wanted to be careful not to "overshare" things about my children that might embarrass them or invade their privacy later on.
BUT, (and you knew a 'but' was coming didn't you?) this was way too cute to pass up. And even though it makes for the second mushy-gushy post about my kids in one week, I thought this would be a nice, uplifting follow-up to my Separation post.
Some background information on the forthcoming video. Christian spent about an hour with me yesterday at work, after his dad took him to a doctor's appointment in the morning and before my lunch break when I was going to take him back to school. I set Christian up at one of the computers in the writing lab on the Thomas the Tank Engine website. Christian sure brightened my day ...
... I wish he could visit me at work every day.
Of course this video, so publicly shared, may embarrass Christian in about eight or nine years. And I suppose, being the responsible, respectful mother that I am, I will have to do something about that then. But until that day, I am going to enjoy this clip, every second of it. And I hope you do, too.
God's grace is never ending. His blessings come in all forms and sizes. Shortly after I took this video, Christian came along with me as I ran several errands on my lunch break. We went to the pharmacy and the Verizon store before I took him back to school. Nothing fancy, but we had fun. After Friday, missing Christian at work as much I had been, God gave us some special time together. It was exactly what I needed.
