You know that your child loves swimming, so are ready for that gorgeous smile that hits their face when they enter the pool. You know that your child loves going on the swing, so are ready for the squeal of excitement when they spot the park up ahead, and start running as fast as their little legs will carry them. You know that your child is tired, and are ready for your heart to melt a little when you glance into the backseat and see them with eyes closed, lightly snoring.
Sometimes you're prepared for the cute moments. And sometimes you're not.
And that can make them even more powerful.
I had (at least) three such moments on the weekend.
- Ashleigh discovering her shadow while walking home from the park, and trying to detach it from her feet.
- Cameron fake giggling as Ashleigh attempted to 'tickle' him, Ashleigh responding with genuine giggles and a more concentrated tickle attack, Cameron fake giggling louder, Ashleigh responding with more giggles and more tickles, Cameron fake giggling louder... and so on.
- Ashleigh replying to Cameron's, "Have fun today" with, "Yes please daddy."
What cute moments surprised you on the weekend?
