Clearly the person who came up with that saying didn’t have a child. Yes it’s true, Angelina is on her way to her next huge milestone. Walking or should I say a brisk jogger?
Sunday night when the dynamic mother daughter duo came home, mom and dad were relaxing in the living room and Angelina was busy in her work area getting things done. Moving toys from one area of the sofa to the other area of the sofa in a very precise order. Holding onto the sofa to ensure everything is done in the most timely manner. She then realized that there was an immediate product demand at her play centre located just a few steps north of where she was situated. Without hesitation she walked on over. Dad and I stared at each other in shock! Did we really just see that?!?! We tried not to react to insane in hopes to see it again and yup indeedy it happened again and again. But what was first 4 very easy steps to the delivery site was becoming harder harder for her. Rightfully so, she’d been working on different projects all night. Needless to say she needed to take a water break and then head back to the library to organize her SSBS (Sesame Street Book Series). And that was that.
Which brings us to last night, when it became official! It’s so cute to see her face with every step she takes and her balancing act routine that she does in between. The best is once she’s reached her location, like any proud parent you look at her with a huge smile on her face but she just looks at you like “Ugh mom, it’s so not even a big deal. All the kids are doing it. Relax.” Then I made a quick plea up to God that went a little something like this.
“Please God make me a cool hip and happening parent that doesn’t embarrass her unless I purposely try to do so. Did I just say hip and happening?!?!” Note to self, never say that again.
