Early Morning

So my three year old is speech delayed making it hard to understand him at times. He does however make up for it by being extremely expressive and loving. Well this morning I'm in the bathroom putting on make-up and he walks in. He extends his chunky monkey hands to me and says, clear as day "dance with me mommy". Needless to say I had to retouch my mascara after but we danced together, hand in hand, in my bathroom at 6am... and I'm still teared up thinking about it.

This is what I live for!!!

that is adorable. i hope you swung him from the rafters.

...a friend of mine summed it up for me... she said maybe it's not that he can't talk but that he was just waiting for the right thing to say...
